When I first had TWC installed, I was pleasantly surprised to find they were showing the BBC series "Later...with Jools Holland". Then they dropped it. Given that, I'm fully in favor of Ovation being dropped.
Later with Jools Holland moved to Paladia. The picture quality on Ovation SD on Directv is pretty bad, but there are a few interesting arts/music shows on the channel.
TWC making a big deal out of dropping this little channel is sort of silly. This move isn't going to matter one bit to the big media conglomerates that control large channel groups. This won't impact the price demands of Disney (Disney, ABC, ESPN, etc) or Viacom or Comcast/Universal (NBC, USA, SyFy, etc.) These companies know they have high demand channels and can use that leverage to get the weak ones included in contracts.
If TWC wants to make a stand, they need to drop a channel from one of the majors.
