The price is wrong: Full Channel TV shuts off Univision

A small Rhode Island (is that redundant?) cable operator, Full Channel TV, has pulled the local Univision broadcast channel from its lineup in a retransmission consent fee dispute with the network's provider, Entravision.

The family-owned provider said it decided to pull the network after Entravision jacked up retrans fees by 33 percent. It's not gone forever, just until prices become more reasonable, said Full Channel President-CEO Jane Maala, noting "our customers want and deserve access to the Univision Network."

Just not at 33 percent more.
