Football Fans Lose Sunday in TW-LIN Standoff

Oct 6, 2008  •  Post A Comment

It sucked to be you this past weekend if you were a Packers or Bills or Colts fan living in Green Bay, Wisc., Buffalo, N.Y., or Indianapolis, Multichannel News reports. Time Warner Cable and LIN TV left many a football fan without a game to watch due to their ongoing retransmission-consent standoff. The two entities failed to come up with a contract renewal before America’s most sacred of days, football Sunday, which affected 11 markets. To help with the dilemma, Time Warner doled out 50,000 free antennas to their subscribers so that they could pick up the blacked-out LIN TV station signals over the air.
