So nice having a digital to analog converter reciever and 15 year old tvs. no monthly bill to have HD version of crap.

Well, actually, they didn't. Google 'Sinclair Broadcasting Dish Network'. They went through something similar in 2009. Your comment is fair, though - I'm going off of what I see as a pattern, not specific knowledge of the details of this particular agreement. I don't think TWC is perfect, but I think they're right to push back against large fee increases.

TW said they have reached an agreement in principle with Sinclair and will work out details this week. No interruption of service...
There, CD. I did your job for you, you fool. Why haven't you updated this story yet?

First, I agree with Hello above. I read at least six hours ago that this childish ranting by the worst network in Columbus and the cable company that only cares about their profits and how much they can squeeze out of their cable customers had been settled. Again, our one and only news paper in cowlumbus is behind!
With everything electronic always getting cheaper over time, cable is ALWAYS going up!
When cable came out thirty years ago or so, it was less than $20 dollars a month!
Second, I wish that that they did not settle As it would have been great to get a break from the awful morning program that claim is a news program. We would have been spared having to watch and listen to Amy Ditz and Garble Mouth Lisa Colbert with their hooker lipsticks!
The evening news is no better! Seems that they take Happy Pills before they go on the air and please tell Yolanda Harris that someone's death news article is not a reason to smile and have a happy tone in your voice.
Everything on Yuck on your side is "Happy Happy Joy Joy"!!!!!
Stick with reporting the news and not making it in the guise of a news program.
Hurry up Time Warner- spare us and rescind the deal!!!!!!!!
Since: Jan 11

Part of TW's reticence to pay more may be the recession. Our TW installer frankly told us she is pulling out more high-end cable packages than she is installing. This was easy money for TW and it may be drying up until people have more confidence to pay hugely inflated cable bills.
