Time Warner Cable Cuts Ties with Showtime

Posted by at 3:47 pm on August 2, 2013

ShowtimeShowtime the acclaimed and popular network that brings shows like Homeland and Dexter to America has been dropped by Time Warner Cable.

Showtime Networks said in a statement that they gave Time Warner Cable the opportunity to keep Showtime on the air—even if an agreement could not be achieved—so viewers would not have to lose the channels they chose and they paid for. Time Warner Cable declined this offer. The network further stated:

“We take pride in the fact that our networks have never gone dark 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.

Time Warner Cable’s decision to shut SHOWTIME down only serves to hurt the very people they claim they are trying to protect—their own customers.”
