I know this isn't MMA but this does affect peoples ability to watch MMA.

Story Here

Looks like Time Warner was unable to make a deal with Viacom and all Time Warner customers will loss access to all of Viacom stations at midnight and one of those stations happens to be Spike TV.

this will affect Bright House cable subscribers as well. if you want to keep Spike, comedy central, vh1, mtv, nickelodeon and other channels call and complain!

i know my cable rates have been raised significantly over the last year i think the cable companies can afford to pay the extra 25 cent per subscriber viacom is asking.

Wow, there's gonna be a lot of pissed off people on New Year's Day if they don't come to an agreement, including myself.

This will only affect Bright House cable and Time Warner cable subscribers.

I have Time Warner and just heard about this today. We have already decided to switch to The Dish Network. Time Warner is going to lose all kinds of customers.

Doesn't affect me, but I'd be the first guy to jump ship if it did.

I doubt that if we lose the channels at all that it will be for very long.
Don't sweat it. Do you seriously think that Time Warner customers aren't going to see the UFC's TV programming?
UFC will make a deal with another outlet that Time Warner does have.
Does anyone know what percent of American Cable subscribers have Time Warner?
