So 18 of the best channels are going to be taken off the air due to a company called viacom wanting more money. The channels include comedy central, nickelodeon, spike, mtv, vh1, and others. All channels go off tonight. You can still keep a channel but you have to pay a ridiculous fee to keep one.

This is really f*ucked up!!!

Time warner article



You're ****ing stupid.

I read the article on foxnews.com and it's a POSSIBILITY.

Don't **** you're ****ing pants just yet kid.

And who ever said "Comcast pwns" or w/e.

I had comcast once. and even if you have comcast you'll still loose the channels because Time Warner isn't a cable company it's a ****ing studio.

so...you still loose.

Comcast is gay. I had insight (a small local company), but Comcast bought them out, and now our service sucks major dick. The internet is slower, and we have like 10 of every channel

You're completely right, but I did jump when I saw this thread because I was watching VH1 Classic and the same message scrolled at the bottom of the screen nonstop, so I was under the impression too. I was deeply upset...

I have hope though because they pull this **** a lot and I remember last time it never actually happened, so let's just keep our fingers crossed >.<
