WDRB Ends Time Warner Blackout

Louisville Fox-affiliate WDRB, along with its MyNetworkTV sister station, WMYO, is back on Insight Cable, which is owned by Time Warner Cable.

WDRB’s owner, Block Communications, reached a new carriage agreement with Time Warner this week, ending a blackout that began last Friday.

“I couldn’t be happier to have this process completed,” WDRB president and general manager Bill Lamb said in a statement.  “I know the last several days have been trying for our viewers who are Insight subscribers, and we’ve shared their pain.

Sinclair Broadcasting, Insight Cable Fighting Over Carriage Agreement Extension

Sinclair Broadcasting and Insight Cable are facing down a December 31 deadline to renegotiate their existing carriage agreement.

If a deal is not reached by December 31, Sinclair-owned stations that are carried by Insight Cable will be blacked out. The affected stations are WDKY, in Lexington, KY; WSYX-WTTE in Columbus, OH; and WSTR in Cincinnati, OH.

“Like any business, we’re not prepared to sell our product if we can’t get what we think is an appropriate price for the product,” Barry Faber, executive vice president and general counsel for Sinclair, told the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Insight is currently being purchased by Time Warner Cable, which had their own retransmission dispute early this year. The Herald-Leader reports the carriage agreement between Sinclair and Insight will expire before that deal is completed.
