We have a problem with EWTN here in a small part of southern Illinois—our local cable provider, Mediacom, will not carry it. The last I heard, there are Catholics who live in Zeigler, Dowell, Elkville, Royalton, Desoto, Hurst, Bush, Herrin, Harrisburg, Cambria, Energy, Carterville, Crainville, Colp, Alto Pass, Cobden, Murphysboro, Marion, West Frankfort, Carbondale, Johntson City, Red Bud, Smithton, Hecker, Tilden and Coulterville, IL (I believe these are towns all covered in this Mediacom region). Almost every neighboring town with other providers carry EWTN. Most other Mediacom regions carry EWTN. Our household has been requesting the network for many years without even receiving so much as a polite explanation why they cannot or do not want to carry EWTN, which I understand does not charge providers for carriage. I am curious as to whether other Mediacom customers in these coverage areas, especially Carbondale, Carterville, Marion, and Herrin, IL are also wondering why we are one of the last areas not receiving EWTN on cable. If others in these areas have requested or would like to request EWTN on Mediacom in southern Illinois please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Maybe if we worked as a unit, we could keep Mediacom from ignoring us.
