Antennae Up as Retrans Battle Drags On

Oct 9, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Time Warner Cable has distributed some 25,000 “rabbit ear” antennas to Buffalo, N.Y., cable customers who no longer receive LIN Broadcasting stations WIVB-TV and WNLO-TV, Buffalo Business First reports. Time Warner Cable had to stop carrying the stations after its retransmission consent agreements with LIN expired Oct. 3. LIN has been seeking carriage fees from Time Warner that would have amounted to less than one cent per day per subscriber, the newspaper says. Time Warner has had to pull the plug on LIN stations in 15 of its 29 markets served.
