The local NBC station is in a dispute with Time Warner over the fees they are being paid from TW. They have been threatening to drop the local station because they wanted too much of an increase. We are past the deadline but the FCC says you can't drop a station during the major ratings periods. The ratings ended Wed at midnight and neither side blinked. So for two days now, no local NBC station on cable. I've seen this disputes before and usually at the last minute they resolve it. Not this time. It is still available off-air of course, if you have an antenna, or Dish & Directv. But here in the SE WI area, cable penetration is over 60%.
