About 2 million homes on the East Coast lost their ABC signal shortly after midnight Sunday. The move by Time Warner coincided with the start of May sweeps, the period when ratings are used to set local advertising rates. Time Warner is blocking DISNEY'S owned, ABC stations in 11 markets, INCLUDING TEXAS AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA... OVER 3.5 million homes ARE AFFECTED.
Nat Sound Pop/ABC TV Show
THE dispute is OVER channel space and compensation. ABC and other BROADCAST networks have had the right to demand compensation from cable providers in exchange for their programming since Congress passed the Cable TV Act in 1992. Time Warner had originally agreed to Disney's demands for channel space, but has refused to accept the amount of money Disney is seeking to close the deal.
The most recent deadline extension passed in March and was designed to give Disney the authority to withhold its programming from the cable giant if the issue wasn't settled by 12:01 a.m. today. That deadline has been enforced, leaving ABC viewers in the dark.
