I hope other Time Warner customers follow suit because I am tired of this every year. Time Warner wake up to the music and deliver or become extinct like T-Rex.

Let Fox explain to their advertisers why they have so much less of a market share without Time Warner and let Fox feel the heat from their affiliates when their advertising revenue drops. Then we will see who is in the drivers seat!
Why should cable companies have to pay for doing what the “broadcasters” no longer do and make sure their signal is “broadcast” to the most people. It would be one thing if Fox was an ad free station that depended on fees but this is just not the case. Fox asking for money from the cable companies that are giving them viewers and increasing their advertiser presence is completely backwards. It is Fox who should be paying Time Warner for making their advertising more valuable.
