(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – DirecTV has decided to drop two local television channels. KIFI and CW were eliminated from the company’s airwaves Wednesday morning. Negotiations about a new contract had been in motion for several weeks, though the discussion recently reached a standstill. Station manager Monte Young says he’s disappointed that DirecTV was unwilling to reach a compromise. Last week Cable ONE customers also lost several channels after the company failed to renew a contract with the Turner network

    Well, goodbye channel 8. You weren’t offering much, but I liked your news team

    Perhaps if local channel 8 was not trying to triple the fee received from DirecTV for retransmitting an otherwise free channel, they would be willing to compromise.
