What is the deal with Time Warner Cable taking off WCYB in Bristol. I was told it was because WVVA complainted that they were infringing on their space. Generally I try to watch both channels for the news and find that WCYB does so much better with Tazewell County. All WVVA covers is West Virginia crap. Well I will just watch Roanoke from this point on. I will never watch a local broadcast from WVVA again. I hope others do the same, and the ones who pay for the advertizing will be the big loosers. WVVA Sucks!

I Agree and it really upsets me that they would go to this point.Wcyb does cover Tazewell county better and it should be our choice,not you have no choice you have to watch our unprofessional People and the weather is never right.Another thing I don't like about wvva is if their is a wreck and someone passes away,they are the first to facebook it and then it gets people upset if they see the car and then they say they can't release the names.Nobody wants to see it on there if something happens to one of thier loved ones in that way.Sad the amount of Control this lil Hitler town has!!

Time Warner did. All WVVA wanted was a blackout of NBC NETWORK programming. Tazewell County is WVVA's market, not WCYB's..but TWC decided to pull the station altogether because they don't want to pay someone to push a button to black out the NBC shows. By the way, WVVA covers Tazewell all the time... the problems on Abbs Valley Road, the air show...and was the only station that interviewed Harry Cundiff when he withdrew from the sheriff's race. I never see WCYB cover anything in Tazewell County.

Time Warner markets how many channels they offer. 200 channels and I can't get my preferred local news. Thanks WVVA you just took us back 30 years. What's next black and white?

How much local news are you getting from wcyb? I mean local news out of tazewell county. Your town is not that close to tennessee. Git a grip please!!!!!!!! Your town is not a suburb of bristol? This stuff is really quite comical.

we work in and visit wcybs area more than the trash towns wvva covers so more interested in knowing whats going on there, neither station does a good job at covering tazewell county, so prefer to hear about the counties i am actually atleast familiar with.

WCYB often covers happening in Tazewell county that WVVA never mentions. If it is not West VA then they could give a big one. So what is the big deal, I signed in with Time Warner and they offered WCYB now they don't so is the price of my cable going down? NOT. Time Warner sucks and WVVA sucks even louder. I will never watch another WVVA local show, so who is the looser, those folks who advertize with WVVA. What is that sucking sound I hear?
