Each year Rye Telephone Company is negotiating prices with various cable entities. The retransmission consent discussion effects channels in a three-year rotation. This year David Shipley, General Manger, and his team are in negotiations with local channels.

About nine channels of the 70 in the basic cable package and about 15 when you include multi-cast and digital channels are being negotiated this year. Those include what the layman would refer to as local channels: ABC, CBS, Fox, PBS, CW, KSKP, KOAA, and some of the Spanish Channels.

The irony of the negotiations this year is that the majority of these channels are required to be available to everyone. The entire negotiation is based entirely on good faith. By law, these channels must be availaible. Hook up an antennae and you can get them.
