You and 5 Million others could lose MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon

(from http://channelwatch.org/news/)

Cable subscribers, beware: starting at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, you might flip to VH1 or Spike TV only to find that those channels have been blacked out or replaced with other programming.

Thanks to deadlocked contract negotiations with Viacom, as many as 5.2 million customers of around 1,000 cable providers could lose access to those and other major channels, such as MTV and Comedy Central.

At issue is Viacom’s request for higher licensing fees from the National Cable Television Cooperative, a group of smaller cable operators each with a median size of 1,500 customers. If the two don’t come to an agreement by March 31, their existing contract will expire, and Viacom will pull its programming.

The American Cable Association, which backs the NCTC, says there’s a kind of irony in the discussions.

“You can look at [Viacom’s] content over time,” said ACA’s Matt Polka. “Their ratings are declining. So we’re in this bizarre situation where our members — and their customers — are paying more for content that is declining in popularity.”

Viacom declined to comment.

In some ways, the dispute is reminiscent of a struggle last year between Time Warner Cable (TWC) and CBS, the latter of which pulled its programming over content fees and caused a weeks-long blackout for TWC customers. Federal regulators have signaled their interest in preventing TV broadcasters, who receive payment from cable companies in exchange for content, from banding together in negotiations with cable carriers.

The difference in this case is that the content provider, Viacom, is outnumbered by the cable companies. Broadcasters are taking advantage of that to argue that NCTC is doing the same kind of collective bargaining that the Federal Communications Commission said it wants to block among TV stations.

However if this resolves itself, it’ll have big implications for the ongoing tussle between distributors and content providers.

Sun Spots (Outages) Affect Cable Service

Just as a thunderstorm creates magnetic disturbances in the form of lightning, the sun also creates a magnetic disturbance while expending energy in the form of storms, called solar flares, more commonly called Sun Spots. When the sun passes directly behind a satellite, the channels distributed by that satellite would be effected by sun spot activity. This activity occurs for about two weeks every fall and spring.

When you experience a sun outage on a particular channel, that channel is being affected all over the country. What you may experience on a channel is a fuzzy signal, sparkles, or total loss of the channel. This will typically last 5 to 15 minutes. This is not a cable outage and there is technically nothing cable providers can do to prevent the sun spots from occurring.


Channel Name Changes

On 3/3/2014 channel 205 will be changing from the Military Channel to American Heroes Channel.


Channels Under Contract Negotiations

Channels 46 (Spike) and 72 (TV Land) are temporarily out of service until contract negotiations are finalized with the channel provider.

The Sewol, carrying 476 passengers and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. The 69-year-old captain, Lee Joon-seok, was arrested in the early hours of Saturday on charges of negligence along with two other crew members, including the third mate who was steering at the time of the capsize.

Debris lie inside a damaged church in Mar Bacchus Sarkis monastery, in Maloula village, northeast of DamascusThe sound of battles echoes from the outskirts of the capital as Christians in Damascus celebrated the Easter weekend, briefly ignoring the conflict for the yearly ritual. At the gates of Saint George Syrian Orthodox Church - just a few minutes walk from a school where a mortar attack killed several children and injured dozens earlier this week - incense was burning as several uniformed and armed men stood patrol before Good Friday evening services. Inside the ancient city walls of the Old City where the church is located, the cobbled streets bustled with evening shoppers and diners, a rare sight reminiscent of pre-war Damascus. Christians, many belonging to ancient denominations found only in Syria, form about 10 percent of the country's population.

The Apple logo is pictured at its flagship retail store in San FranciscoBy Dan Levine SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Four large technology companies should not be allowed to limit evidence about Apple Inc co-founder Steve Jobs at an upcoming trial over no-hire agreements in Silicon Valley, according to a court document filed late on Thursday by employees suing the firms. Tech workers brought a class action lawsuit against Apple, Google Inc, Intel Inc and Adobe Systems Inc in 2011, alleging they conspired to avoid competing for each other's employees in order to avert a salary war. The case, which is closely watched in Silicon Valley, is largely built on emails among top executives, including Apple's late chief executive Jobs and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt.

Erdogan addresses members of parliament from his ruling AK Party during a meeting at the Turkish parliament in AnkaraBy Orhan Coskun ANKARA (Reuters) - Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan applied to Turkey's constitutional court on Friday to challenge the alleged violation of his and his family's rights by social media, a senior official in his office told Reuters. Erdogan's government blocked Twitter and YouTube in March, drawing international condemnation, after audio recordings, purportedly showing corruption in his inner circle, were leaked on their sites. The Twitter block was lifted earlier this month after the constitutional court ruled that it breached freedom of expression, a decision Erdogan has since said was wrong and should be overturned. YouTube remains blocked in Turkey.

A Michaels arts and crafts store is seen in San Diego, California(Reuters) - Michaels Stores Inc, the biggest U.S. arts and crafts retailer, on Thursday confirmed that there was a security breach at certain systems that process payment cards at its U.S. stores and that of its unit, Aaron Brothers. The company said in January that it was working with federal law enforcement officials to investigate a possible data breach. Michaels Stores said the breach, which took place between May 8, 2013 and January 27, 2014, may have affected about 2.6 million cards, or about 7 percent of payment cards used at its stores during the period. There was no evidence that data such as customers' name or personal identification number were at risk, Michaels Stores said in a statement.
