Disney-Time Warner Cable Dispute Could Lead to Lost Disney Channels
I am not sure why more people aren’t talking about this! This articles comes to us from WKRC in Cincinnati.
A Time-Warner cable dispute could mean local homes will no longer get Disney owned channels — which include the ESPN channels.
The debate also involves the Disney Channel, ABC Family and SoapNet. Time Warner argues it is trying to avoid paying higher programming costs to providers because it will mean customers pay much more for their cable service. But ESPN says programming costs do not drive up the rate for customers because it only represents a third of the cable company’s total cost.
Disney is directing viewers to go to other providers — including Direct TV. The deadline to reach a deal is September 2nd.
Both sides have set up websites with their views on the debate. For the Disney site,. For the Time-Warner site, click here.
