While I’m sure this will eventually be resolved (no doubt at the expense of seeing my cable bills go up even further; they’re already nearing the century mark), I find it hard to empathize with either side in this debate. I also note that since it’s summer (reruns and all), Hearst and Time-Warner Cable can drag this out much further than, say, if this were happening a few months from now. Since WISN airs the over-the-air broadcasts of Packers football games, this dispute will sooner or later be over faster than one can say “angry Cheeseheads.”
Meanwhile, I suppose now’s a time for linking (again) to my cord-cutter post, since over-the-air viewers don’t have to deal with such cable company related antics.
Update (7/19/12): The two sides have reached some sort of agreement, and WISN is back on Time-Warner Cable’s lineup.
