Time Warner Drops New England Cable News

necn logoTime Warner Cable is dropping New England Cable News from its lineup in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine. The Portland Press Herald reports viewers are angry about the decision:

“I’m ready to scream,” Julie Deroche of Gray said in a phone interview, joining a chorus of angry Time Warner customers who posted similar opinions online. “They are making the poorest change, in my mind. The bottom line is greed. It’s all about money.”

The announcement followed this week’s breakdown of contract negotiations between NECN and Time Warner, which pays fees to cable channels to carry them on its system. Time Warner Public Relations Director Scott Pryzwansky said the decision was based on several factors, including cost, viewership and unique content, and is final.

Beginning in 2014, Time Warner Cable is adding Al Jazeera America to its lineup, although a spokesperson for Time Warner says the decision “is not connected.”
