Attention Time Warner Cable & Bright House Networks customers!  Starting tonight, you will lose Nick & 18 other channels from your TV!  You can protest at the numbers below:

  • Time Warner Cable customers call 1-800-762-3786
  • Bright House customers call 1-866-309-3279

Why is Time Warner Kicking Sponge Bob Off the Air?

Viacom Inc. wants more money, in the form of carriage fees, from Time Warner.

Viacom owns cable networks Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central and other channels. These popular channels will go dark for 13 million subscribers at 12:01 a.m. January 1st if Time Warner doesn't pay the fees!

The channels that would be affected are: Comedy Central, CMT: Pure Country, Logo, Palladia, MTV, MTV 2, MTV Hits, MTV Jams, MTV Tr3s, Nickelodeon, Noggin, Nick 2, Nicktoons, Spike, The N, TV Land, VH1, VH1 Classic, and VH1 Soul.

I hope the battle of the media titans ends before the deadline. Besides losing Nickelodeon, it would really hurt me if we lost CMT, Comedy Central and VH1 from our cable! We just switched from Time Warner to ATT&T Universe but I feel your pain.

A big thank you to MommaTasha2003 for posting about the Time Warner situation! CafeMom's CorCorsmomma and Christine0813 posted about this situation in their journals today too. Rock on ladies!
