Time Warner Gift to North Idaho — No Fox Programs

Local Fox affiliate KAYU-TV took its channel off of Time Warner Cable’s lineup at midnight Thursday, leaving Time Warner customers in North Idaho, Pullman and Moscow without the station’s popular Fox programming. The station and the cable provider have butted heads since mid-June over whether the cable company should have to pay KAYU for permission to include Fox programming in Time Warner’s lineup. As of noon Friday, Northwest Broadcasting, KAYU’s owner, and Time Warner Cable were still in negotiations.

Nic Casey: My wife and I had several complaints about Adelphia. I was hoping that the Time-Warner takeover would be an improvement. Surprisingly, Time-Warner took Adelphia’s impossibly bad service and made it worse. The television prices are outrageous, and the channel line-up is mediocre. But the true horrors lie in the customer service. In the first month after we had cable internet installed, there were five major interruptions of service. Extended periods of time with no internet access is torture to a blogger, but detrimental to a student at an on-line college.
