'It's Just Common Sense': Turner and Cable One are Haggling Over Carriage Charges
Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - 14:40 By David M. Kinchen
I found out about the battle of the cable company -- the 10th largest in the U.S. by number of subscribers -- and the network when I returned from a post office run and tried to see what was on Channel 32, TCM. Nada! There was 31 and there was 33, but no 32. No Wolf Blitzer and the rest of the gang on Channel 42, CNN, either.
I called the local Cable One phone number and was informed via a recorded message about the dispute between Turner and Cable One. The Phoenix, AZ-based Cable One said they are have a dispute over increased charges for Turner channels. They said when they dropped some Turner channels, they were blocked by Turner from receiving other channels.
I'm wondering if my impressive cable TV bill will decrease, since I'm not getting more than a half dozen networks. So much for the commercial with the Lady in the White Suit saying (about Cable One) "It's just common sense."
