Close call with CBS

I panicked for a moment when I heard we no longer had a CBS affiliation in the VI!! A lot of my favorite shows are CBS and I was pretty bummed that I would no longer be able to watch them. We noticed the first week of July that we no longer had CBS morning news and started checking around.

Then we found this article in the newspaper (St. Thomas Source):

Innovative Cable TV Announces Temporary CBS Affiliation
By Source Staff
July 2, 2009 — Innovative Cable TV officials are notifying subscribers that the cable system will broadcast a temporary CBS signal, WSEE-TV out of Eerie, Pennsylvania, from July 1 through 12. This WSEE feed will substitute for WVXF-TV CBS, which goes off the air on June 30. WSEE-TV CBS will be positioned on channel 58 on both St. Croix and St. Thomas-St. John systems.
Negotiations are ongoing to secure a CBS affiliate for the U.S. Virgin Islands. It is Innovative’s understanding that negotiations with CBS are going very well and the affiliation should be in place by July 13. Innovative Cable TV will inform our customers of the final outcome as soon as negotiations are completed.

But no worries. TV2 picked up the affiliation so CBS is saved!!! Yea!!
