You Can't Get a 300% Raise, Why Should a TV Network?
You've probably heard the news by now. In a few short days, some of your favorite shows could disappear from your TV.
At Time Warner Cable, we're not happy about this - and we know our customers aren't happy about it either. But we want you to have the facts, and we want you to be prepared.
Even in today's economy, some television networks are demanding massive price increases for their programming - up to 300% more than the current price we pay. And with our agreements with these networks running out at the end of December, some networks have threatened to pull the plug on their sports, entertainment - even family holiday specials - at midnight New Year's Eve.
SOME TV NETWORKS ARE DEMANDING | 300% PRICE INCREASE
We know prices keep going up. We've had to announce a few price increases of our own and we know no one's ever happy about that. But up to 300%? That's going too far!
Please be assured that we will continue negotiating for a fair agreement that protects our customers' pocketbooks. But if the TV networks follow through on their threats - we're ready. You'll find a helpful guide to alternative sources for programming at RollOverOrGetTough.com, so you'll still be able to watch many popular shows even if a television network pulls the plug
Don't let them hold your TV hostage. Go to RollOverOrGetTough.com now and let us know what you think.
Together, we just might make a difference in what America pays for TV.
