Apparently if a new settlement isn't reached by 12:01 tomorrow morning, we're going to lose all of the Viacom stations until this thing is settled.


Time Warner may cut ‘Colbert,’ ‘Spongebob’ - Television- msnbc.com


And most importantly...

Count me in with Palladia, VH1 Classic and Comedy Central.

They'll probably come to some sort of an extension or agreement, but it's the same crap over and over again. I don't have a line of sight for a sat dish so that's out. I'm essentially stuck.

Just another way to hike up our bill...

I hate Direct TV and my son had issues with Dish....I will really miss Nick at Nite and TVLand. Pretty much all I watch!!

Maybe it's time to go to basic cable and not worry with it.

Well windstream just took over my phone line (back) from TW...so just waiting for the dsl router so I can cut my internet over (well test the speed before I do)...

I do admit, they don't seem to innovate much...the rates are going up and they are *losing* programming? Doesn't compute.

Not many people know this is going to happen right now.
