LIN TV Corp. (NYSE: TVL), the parent of many local NBC affiliates, is continuing negotiations with Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) to reach a long-term agreement that would allow the cable provider to broadcast past the midnight deadline Thursday, when the current cable carriage agreement expires between the two.
Through the negotiations, LIN is looking to receive compensation from Time Warner for carrying its 15 television stations and, conversely, Time Warner feels it should not have to pay to carry stations that are available over-the-air for no charge.
Two greedy companies fighting over money. Our money. While we (the ones paying the money) suffer until it is settled. Isn't it great? I am not blaming either... I blame both. I have lots of hatred for everything Time Warner, but LIN is to blame here too.
BTW... Sunday Night Football. For those with high-speed put Watch Sunday Night Football in google. The first hit should give you access to watch on your computer. I have done it the last two weeks. Gives you the opportunity to see 5 different camera angles. Kind of cool to watch.
