What’s the deal with the Time Warner blackout?

August 12th, 2013


If you, or someone you know has Time Warner Cable and is living in the Los Angeles, New York or Dallas area, you might already be familiar with the fact that CBS is currently not available. CBS? A channel that carries a great a deal of programming from NFL coverage to all of those primetime shows? Yeah. Imagine not having that for more than a week now, all because of problems with how much Time Warner is willing to pay CBS for local channel fees.

Being in major American cities, this blackout is a pretty big deal. In fact, over 3 million customers are currently without CBS, and no one is really happy that any of this is happening in the first place. The worst part about the whole thing is that as of right now, there’s no saying when the situation will come to an end.

This isn’t exactly the kind of the thing that any customer of Time Warner would want to be hearing right now. Imagine if this were during NFL season, where CBS gives a great deal of coverage on Sundays…It’s safe to say that no person would want to be in the house of a serious NFL fan having to miss out on their team .

TWC customers have had to resort to other options to check out the CBS programming that they have been waiting on either through the Internet, or through other channels (mostly for sports programming such as the PGA Championship that happened this past weekend).

Customers of DISH Network currently aren’t being subjected to any blackouts of any kind, so the channels that you want are there when you’re ready for them. Are you a Time Warner customer that has had enough with this blackout situation, see how DISH Network from Cannon Satellite can bring you the channels that you’re looking for at any time.
