Time Warner Cable is facing a summer retrans impasse with Journal Broadcast Group, owner of six television stations in Wisconsin, California and Nebraska, on June 30.
TWC is claiming the Journal stations - including those in Milwaukee; Green Bay - Appleton, Wis; Palm Springs, Calif.; and Omaha Neb. - are demanding a 200% rate increase for their programming.
"We continue to take a stand against unreasonable fee increases by local broadcast TV stations," TWC said in a statement. "We are pushing back against broadcasters that demand egregious increases without delivering more value."
