Letters: Cable blackout

February 01, 2013

Re "Cable rates on rise as users fall," Column, Jan. 29

The problems with cable companies are not limited to the rate increases. Some channels cannot be viewed simply because certain carriers refuse to offer them.

For example, the new Pac-12 Network has exclusive rights to televise certain college sporting events in that conference. So if you are a UCLA or USC football or basketball fan and your cable company has not bought into the Pac-12 Network, you will be unable to view many of the games you'd like to see — at any price.
