My son was watching Nickelodeon here at Mom’s house, and there was a strange crawl on the screen.
Note: I didn’t take the video…I found it on YouTube.
I just had to find out more info on it, and write about it. What am I writing about? Well Time Warner Cable, and Viacom have been unable to negotiate new carriage fees, and on New Years Day — when you may be nursing a hangover and wanting Nickelodeon to help babysit your kids — you may be in for a shock. If the deal isn’t reached, then these 18 networks will be PULLED by Viacom from your line up as of the New Year:
CMT Pure Country
Nick at Nite
First, I have a little to say for each side in the deal:
Viacom, by doing this, you’re not endearing yourself to the parents of the many children who watch Nickelodeon. Don’t pull your signal. PLUS all networks see the crawl, including Comcast, which my parents use. Thanks for letting me know Viacom.
Time Warner, I WANT TO PAY THE EXTRA 23 CENTS A MONTH THAT IT WOULD REQUIRE TO KEEP THESE CHANNELS!
Time Warner is trying to keep my cable bill down, but this isn’t that big of a increase, and it’s something I can bear and will bear to have Nickelodeon. Time Warner, thank you for trying to keep my bill down, but this is a stupid reason to let Viacom drop their signal from your Cable Network. This could have been resolved MONTHS ago, if you would have simply asked your customers!
Bright House: The same goes for you!
A lot of you may not be affected by this, but there’s a large amount of people who are. Please call your cable company and let them know that you want these channels, if you’re a subscriber.
