No News on Time Warner-CW

It's 7 p.m. Friday night, and still no deal for Time Warner to carry the new CW network. If they don't reach an agreement with Channel 12 to carry the new digital Channel 12.2 (aka the CinCW), I would hate to be the Time Warner operator Moonday.
Not just every "Gilmore Girls," "7th Heaven, " "Smallville," "WWE Smackdown" "Everybody Hates Chris" or "America's Next Top Model" fan could be calling... But also some customers who have been mislead by Time Warner Customer Service employees. Two people I trust -- a coworker and a Channel 12 department head -- have called Time Warner in the past month and were assured that the cable operator would definitely have the new CW channel. So Time Warner may have a lot of irate customers come Monday!
For now, ifyou want to get the CW you need:
--Insight Cable, Channel 25.
--DirecTV Channel 25, tho Channel 12 folks caution that it might take a few days next week.
--An antenna to get Channel 26 out of Dayton.
--Or an HDTV, tuner and antenna to get Channel 12.2 over the air.

If anything breaks over the weekend, you'll read it here first.

I'm just surprised that WSTR is showing the pilot episodes of some of the WB series on Sunday, Sept. 17.

Just so everyone knows, I talked to a director at WKRC channel 12 Thursday about this entire situation. He was very helpful but also very pessimistic about the situation with Time Warner or the Dish Network. They are very frustrated also that these cable/satellite providers will not pick up the CW. He told me in no uncertain terms that there will be no agreement anytime in the near future. FYI...Directv is offering $150 rebate for anyone that registers online. That was the best option to me. Good luck!

around $200 will get you a digital over the air reciever that will pick up the CW on 12.2 and send it to any analog TV. Thats what I did and everything is DVD quality pictures.
