A Friendly Warning for Time Warner Customers...
I just wanted to give Time Warner Cable customers out there a friendly warning about what may happen to them tomorrow.
Viacom has told Time Warner that unless an agreement is reached for a fee increase it will pull all of its networks tomorrow. Those networks include Nickelodeon, MTV, VH1, Comedy Central and BET.
Time Warner has asked for an extension, but has so far been turned down, according to TVWeek.com.
Experts say that Viacom has some leverage because of Nickelodeon’s ratings, but that in today’s economy an increase will be tough to get.
If the networks are pulled, Viacom plans to run ads on other networks featuring Spongebob Squarepants and blaming Time Warner for the situation.
