    Time Warner Cable has taken away Dexter®, Ray Donovan, Homeland and all of your other favorite SHOWTIME programming — all gone! Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks customers will miss out on new episodes of hit shows, big movies and great sports programs – all because Time Warner Cable decided to drop SHOWTIME, premium channels you chose and paid for.

    We gave Time Warner Cable the opportunity to keep SHOWTIME on the air even if an agreement could not be achieved. Time Warner Cable declined this offer.

    We take pride in the fact that our networks have never gone dark until now and that our subscribers have never been deprived of their programming. Time Warner Cable, on the other hand, has taken nearly 50 channels off the air in the last five years in disputes like the one we are having right now.


    SO LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD:


    Call Time Warner Cable now and tell them you want SHOWTIME back.
    1-888-TW-CABLE





    Bright House Networks customers call 1-855-222-0102

    Wow, Someone likes Showtime? I remember when You got the Premiums for movies. Now the movies are junk and the Movie channels are trending towards less and less Movies.
    Every time I see it for free there is nothing there worth watching. Most all of my TV watching is either networks, or Non premium channels. Right now for what its worth I'm watching a lot of the three PBS channels in my area, WLIW, WNET and the New Jersey network. They are all running fund raiser specials. The DVR is smoking recording Music specials.

    Lucky me I'm on Satellite and Basic Cable. Not TWC.

    Dexter is very popular, and the final season is currently running. Ray Donovan is doing very well in its first season, and Homeland starts next month.

    Uhhh...no thanks, I'm good. Not in one of the O&O CBS markets so I still have CBS. Not subbed to any premium channels, last time I was I hardly ever watched them. Besides I side with TWC in this. How does this concern you anyway since you're with DirecTV?

    Showtime being off would be meaningless on DIRECTV as long as it didn't last forever because of on demand and showtime anytime. Does dish have all that as well? I figured they did.

    True, and this is one case where customers will get a credit, biggest problem for subscribers is office talk of the last episode or spoilers if the shows are that type.

    Since Showtime is a pay channel, does anyone know what the dispute is about, or is pulling the plug just part of a strategy by TMC to get CBS to come to a reasonable agreement?

    I guess people will simply have to use the digital bit stream to get these shows another way.

    For CBS, this only affects O&O's so other markets are unaffected by the loss of CBS. They have contracts with those owners.

    Yes I reckon it is...... THEY WANT MORE AND MORE $$$$ FOR GARBAGE!!!!!!!!! (It keeps getting worse and worse yet they want MORE MONEY)

    They want MORE $$$$ -- MAKE THE QUALITY BETTER AGAIN!!!! (I think its good TWC is standing up instead of raising everyones bills MORE to make up the increase that way)
