You could lose Nick & 18 more cable channels tonight.

This morning when I woke up I turned on Nick for DD and across the screen I see a screen scrolling, telling us we could lose this channel tonight & More. It Reads:



Alert! Attention Time Warner Cable & Bright House Networks customers, starting tonight, you will lose Nick & 18 other channels from your TV. Dont miss out on Dora, Spongebob, Icarly & all your favorite shows. You can stop this! Time warner Cable customers call 1-800-762-3786. Bright House Cust. call. 1-866-309-3279



What does everyone think about this?
(there is also an article about it in my journal)

  • Wow thanks for alerting me to this! We JUST SWITCHED to ATT&T from Time Warner. How weird that Time Warner would do this! Those are all popular channels.

  • I just looked it up on the Bright House website...it's b/c they can't come to an agreement with MTV Networks, which owns those channels. I have Dish Network, but my parents have Bright House. I hope they're going to give all of you a discount if you lose the channels. That's not fair.

  • I've been trying all morning to get through to Time Warner, but it's either busy or I get a weird recording. This sucks.

  • Glad that I don't have cable so I don't have to worry about this! Just get your kids some Nick DVD's.

  • We stayed at an aunts house a few weeks ago who has AT&T with Uverse. Its awsome. We looked into getting it, but even though we are in a very populated town they said its not available to us.

    I dont watch TV much so i guess it wont effect me much, but if i need to get something done DD will sit & watch Nick (dora/diego/spongebob).. so that kinda sucks! LOL.
