Dear Municipal Official:
I am writing to you as part of our ongoing efforts to keep you apprised of developments affecting Time Warner Cable subscribers in the Western New York Division.
Time Warner Cable’s agreements with programmers and broadcasters to carry their services and stations routinely expire from time to time. We are usually able to obtain renewals or extensions of such agreements, but in order to comply with applicable regulations, we must inform you when an agreement is about to expire. The following agreements are due to expire soon, and we may be required to cease carriage of one or more of these services/stations in the near future where these services are offered:
CBS Sports Network, CBS Sports Network HD, Sports HD, E!, E! HD, Flix, G4, G4HD, GOL TV, GOL TV HD, Lifetime, Lifetime HD, Lifetime Movie Network, Lifetime Movie Network HD, Lifetime Real Women, Music Choice, NHL, NHL HD, NHL Center Ice, NHL Center Ice HD, Sprout, Style, Style HD, TMC SD/HD & West, TMC Xtra SD/HD & West, YouToo, WONS-LP
In addition, from time to time, we make certain changes in the services that we offer in order to better serve our customers. The following changes are planned:
- GSN (Game Show Network) will be added on or about September 12, 2013
- QVC Plus will be added on or about September 24, 2013
- ESPN 3D will be dropped on or about September 30, 2013
- We SD & HD will be added to Rochester Central on or about September 30, 2013
Some of the new services listed above cannot be accessed by CableCard-equipped Unidirectional Digital Cable Products purchased at retail without additional, two-way capable equipment.
