We are back, and I am posting from in front of my BRAND NEW monitor. It is an Acer X163W, 15.6" wide flatscreen :).
That being out of the way, we have two items to kick off the 2009 blog:
TWC/Viacom Deal Reached: Apparently, the last minute deal we speculated on Wednesday, was indeed taking place. Yesterday, it was revealed that Time Warner and Viacom agreed to a 23 cent per subscriber, or 36 million dollar fee increase. More details are to be released today or Monday.
WCPO Weather Tracker Off Insight?: Apparently, the WCPO-TV/DT Weather Tracker subchannel will soon be wiped off Insight's Basic service. In other words, it looks like it'll be moved exclusively to digital channel 432 next Thursday, going by the crawl on the channel. We'll confirm, but this looks like a bad idea to us...taking the ONLY local weather tracking channel off the basic cable side (no, we don't count NBC-owned The Weather Channel as a LOCAL channel). More on this as we get it.
Thank you for following us into the New Year...
