To our viewers who subscribe to Clearvision Cable systems:
We regret to inform you that you may lose access to station WCIA at 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2014. Nexstar has successfully reached agreements with all major carriers prior to now and we have been diligently negotiating with Clearvision Cable Systems to secure a new agreement for continued carriage of WCIA by Clearvision Cable Systems. We expected that we would reach an agreement to allow you – our viewers – to continue receiving WCIA on an uninterrupted basis from Clearvision Cable Systems. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts we may not come to an agreement and you may lose WCIA 3 on December 31, 2014.
In addition to all of the great CBS Programming including Big Bang Theory, NCIS, Hawaii 5-O The NFL and NCAA Basketball, WCIA provides more than 47 hours of news and local programming to East Central Illinois communities each week. We are disappointed that Clearvision Cable Systems has elected not to pay a fair price for WCIA and regret that we have not be able to reach an agreement.
If you would like to be ensured of continuing to receive WCIA after December 31, below are a few providers who will be serving our community after that date:
