Spectrum/TWC... no more Fox-Sports Ohio

If you have Spectrum/Time Warner Cable you may lose Fox-Sports Ohio and other Fox stations on April 8th. To keep this from happening call this number to complain....

866-533-7696

How many of you would stay with Spectrum if you lose these stations?

Live sports really are the only reason that I have any interest in cable or satellite TV. Some channels do have unique offerings, but I would forego all of those.

It's just a contract dispute between Spectrum and Fox. Odds are it will be solved by Saturday and even if it doesn't it probably won't go on for very long.

I'm getting 100Mbps internet for the same price as I was paying for 30Mbps on TWC, and have DirectTV...so Spectrum is cool in my book so far.

I don't know how anyone puts up with cable. The internet offers the same thing and then some, for free.

oh very likely. I've seen very few of these ever actually not get resolved in time.


That was meant to be more of a hypothetical question. Just curious how that would impact Fox's contracts with Ohio sports teams.

Thanks for letting us know, currently have Dish. Would never switch to Spectrum if they don't have FoxSports Ohio. Reds baseball!

I would expect Spectrum to have FoxSportsOhio. Spectrum here has FoxSportsSouth (Braves) and FoxSportsSoutheast (Reds).

Just saw the same web crawler message the OP noted. It'll work out, but if it does not, I cut the cord once and can do it again.

Find anyone under the age of 30 and they will show you where to find live stuff via the internet. It's not difficult.

LA Dodger games haven't been on Directv in LA for like two years now because of a stupid dispute between TWC and Directv. Total disaster and if it happened with the Reds I'd probably switch cable providers.

I use a program called Acestream. I've never not been able to find a sporting event that I wanted to watch. All in HD too.

Why is AceStream regarded as malware by Kaspersky ?

"STATEMENT FROM US [fox sports]

Fox and Charter have an agreement to carry the Fox networks that Charter has chosen to ignore. We’re disappointed that despite our best efforts to reach a resolution, Charter Spectrum subscribers could lose access to multiple Fox sports and entertainment networks on April 10. Charter’s tactics could result in its subscribers missing our popular programming including Fox Sports’ telecasts of the St. Louis Cardinals and Blues, Kansas City Royals, Cleveland Cavaliers, Cincinnati Reds and many other MLB, NBA and NHL teams on Fox Regional Sports Networks, Fox Deportes, National Geographic, and FX’s hit dramas The Americans and Feud as well as much more award winning programming."

I'd dump Fox Deportes for a $.01 bill credit
