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.

U.S. President Barack Obama shakes hands with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at a joint news conference at the Akasaka Palace in TokyoBy Mark Felsenthal and Linda Sieg TOKYO (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama assured ally Japan on Thursday that Washington was committed to its defense, including of tiny isles at the heart of a row with China, but denied he had drawn any new "red line" and urged peaceful dialogue over the islands. His comments drew a swift response from China, which said the disputed islets were Chinese territory. Obama also urged Japan to take "bold steps" to clinch a two-way trade pact seen as crucial to a broad regional agreement that is a central part of the U.S. leader's "pivot" of military, diplomatic and economic resources towards Asia and the Pacific. U.S. and Japanese trade negotiators failed to resolve differences in time for Obama and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to shake hands on a deal at the summit.

Ukrainian security force officers walk past a checkpoint set on fire and left by pro-Russian separatists near SlavianskBy Mark Felsenthal and Alissa de Carbonnel TOKYO/DONETSK, Ukraine (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama said on Thursday he was poised to impose new sanctions on Moscow if it does not act fast to end an armed stand-off in Ukraine, but there was a first, tentative sign that pro-Russian separatists were ceding ground. Moscow also flexed its economic muscles in its worst stand-off with the West since the Cold War, with the government suggesting foreign firms which pull out of the country may not be able to get back in, and a source at Gazprom saying the gas exporter had slapped an additional $11.4 billion bill on Kiev. Under an international accord signed in Geneva last week, illegal armed groups in Ukraine, including the pro-Russian rebels occupying about a dozen public buildings in the east of the country, are supposed to disarm and go home. Washington accuses Moscow of fomenting unrest in eastern Ukraine while Russia denies this and counters that Europe and the United States are supporting an illegitimate government in Kiev.

Burges, a self-styled cryptocurrency trader and former software engineer from London, holds a placard to protest against Mt. Gox in TokyoTokyo District Court ordered liquidation to begin at failed bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox, the company said on Thursday, after the bankruptcy administrator said on April 16 that it would be difficult to rehabilitate the firm. Mt. Gox, once the largest bitcoin exchange in the world, filed for bankruptcy protection on February 28, saying that 750,000 of its customers' bitcoins had been taken from the exchange due to a security flaw in its code, as well as 100,000 belonging to the exchange. A document uploaded onto its website and signed by bankruptcy administrator, attorney Nobuaki Kobayashi, said that he would conduct an investigation regarding the liability of the representative director of the company, Mark Karpeles, regarding the missing assets. A group of investors under the umbrella of a company called Sunlot made a last-ditch attempt in mid-April to prevent the liquidation of the exchange, bidding to take over Mt. Gox in order to retrieve the cryptocurrency and cash belonging to its 127,000 creditors.

Apple's iPad devices are displayed at its store in TokyoBy Edwin Chan SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Apple Inc has approved another $30 billion in share buybacks till the end of 2015 and authorized a rarely seen seven-for-one stock split, addressing calls to share more of its cash hoard while broadening the stock's appeal to individual investors. Activist investor Carl Icahn, who had famously called on the iPhone maker to boost its buyback program, tweeted his approval of the move on Wednesday. On Wednesday, Apple reported sales of 43.7 million iPhones in the quarter ended March, far outpacing the roughly 38 million that Wall Street had predicted. But whether Apple can again produce a revolutionary new product remains the central question in investors' and Silicon Valley executives' minds.

The Apple logo is pictured at a retail store in the Marina neighborhood in San FranciscoBy Edwin Chan SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Apple Inc just bought itself some much-needed time. On Wednesday, the company surprised Wall Street with news that it sold more iPhones in the March quarter than even the most bullish analysts had expected. To top it all off, Apple unveiled a 7-for-1 stock split that should go down well with individuals who want a piece of a household name but could not afford to fork over $500 a share. The litany of positive numbers sent Apple's long-stagnant shares up 8 percent.
