CableOne Losing Voice & TV Subscribers
Washington Post owned Cable One this week stated that the company lost
14,643 video and 2,737 telephone customers during the third quarter, adding a modest 5,004 high-speed Internet users (the company killed overage fees last June
). Things aren't expected to get much better for the cable operator next quarter. A retransmission fee dispute with Turner Broadcasting resulted in CableONE subscribers losing access to numerous Turner networks (including CNN, TNT and TBS) for roughly 25 days -- beginning on the first day of the fourth quarter. Time Warner Cable last week revealed they suffered significant subscriber losses
courtesy of their retransmission fee feud with CBS.
