To compensate for missing channels after a contractual dispute with Turner Broadcasting System Inc., Cable One will be showing previews of new channels to replace those no longer playing, the company announced in a press release Friday.
At the expiration of their [auth] contract, Cable One and Turner were unable to reach an agreement as of last week, leading to Cable One’s removal of CNN, CNN en Espanol, Headline News, Turner Classic Movies, TruTV and Boomerang.
In response, Turner de-authorized signals to TNT, TBS and Cartoon Network.
Friday, Cable One said previews of the Hallmark Channel will show on the Turner Classic Movie Channel, the Science Channel will temporarily replace TNT and Cartoon Network will provisionally be replaced with the Game Show Network.
These channels should be showing, in most markets, by Oct. 9. Cable One will continue looking for previews to run on CNN and TBS and will provide information upon its availability.
