Viacom and Time Warner Cable Split
Posted by invizweb on January 1, 2009
Thanks to Rich Tate of GeorgiaWrestlingHistory.com. Catch my good friends Ric Gillespie of The Canvas Chronicle and Casey Trowbridge of Combat-Hooligans podcasting for that site every Sunday starting this January.
Effective midnight tonight, those with Time Warner Cable systems will no longer have access to Viacom networks, which includes SpikeTV, the home for Total Nonstop Action’s iMPACT. Apparently a deal between the two companies, which has been negotiated over several months but recently stalled, could not be reached. Among the other networks that will be lost to TWC customers are the various channels from MTV, VH-1, Nickelodeon, as well as Comedy Central, CMT, and TV Land.
Update: The channels are staying on the air. See this report on the Wrestling Observer.
