Suddenlink customers in Greenville, Kinston lose WRAL

Suddenlink has dropped WRAL from its cable lineup as of April 26, 2016. WRAL has served Greenville and Kinston on cable for many years, even though these communities are outside our designated coverage area. We want very much to continue doing that and have offered Suddenlink the right to carry WRAL.

Suddenlink has stated it is required by law to cease carrying WRAL. That is not correct, but Suddenlink would possibly have to “black out” NBC network programming appearing on WRAL. Suddenlink can legally continue to carry WRAL’s local news and other local programming, and WRAL has offered Suddenlink the right to carry WRAL without NBC programming. We are offering that solution so that you can have access to WRAL news, weather and other local programming. You are among the 35,000 households that we want to continue serving.

If you want WRAL and its news and local programming on your cable, let Suddenlink know WRAL is important to you. Please call Suddenlink in Kinston at 252-523-7511 or stop by their office at 1200 W. New Bern Road. In Greenville, call 252-756-5677 or stop by their office at 2120 W Arlington Blvd. Tell them you want WRAL News and local programming in your channel line-up.

Thank you for watching all these years.

    Calling Suddenlink in Greenville is useless. I was instructed to write to them. I emailed and hey did write back to say they were going to all digital and WRAL is analog. Changing to NBC may not have been in the best interest of viewship.
