Time Warner Starts the Campaign: Rollover or Get Tough
Update 12-20-09: I just saw a full-page add in the local paper saying Time Warner was being unfair about not showing FoxNews without a rate increase. Puleeze. This is just the channel that would have me voting FOR TWC.
Time Warner Cable has a site ( http://www.rolloverorgettough.com/) where they are asking the customer to vote:
” You Can’t Get a 300% Raise. Why Should a TV Network?
These days, every dollar counts. And for most families, cable TV provides the best entertainment value for the money.
But some of our contracts with program providers are up at the end of this year – and they’ve demanded as much as 300% more for their shows. Even worse, they’re threatening to pull the plug if we don’t pay their price.
In today’s economy, a 300% price increase is excessive. And withholding popular programming is unfair to America’s families – especially over the upcoming holidays.
Don’t let these TV networks hold your TV hostage. Together, we just might make a difference in what America pays for TV.”
What do you think? Do we care what TWC pays for network programming? Or should we let them take it off TWC. I’m with that satellite company now, but I’m none to happy with them either.
