Retransmission Standoff Could Keep LIN TV Stations Off Time Waner cable

Retrans Standoff Could Keep LIN TV Stations Off TWC Systems - 9/16/2008 12:42:00 PM - Multichannel News: "A retransmission-consent battle is looming between LIN TV and Time Warner Cable that could result in 15 stations getting dropped from the cable operator’s systems next month, the broadcaster said Monday."

"...For a limited time, all new subscribers to Dish Network in the Austin, Buffalo, Columbus, Dayton, Fort Wayne, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Mobile, Terre Haute and Toledo markets will receive a $50 incentive to switch to the satellite provider.

The broadcaster also pointed out that Verizon’s FiOS TV service also carries LIN TV stations in the Buffalo area and the Fort Wayne market."

Does Time Warner have a presence in this area? If you receive Channel 15 via Time Warner, sounds as if you might have a problem.
