Time Warner Customers Could Lose Fox Channel

Customers of the Time Warner cable system in Archbold could lose WUPW, the Toledo Fox television network affiliate, from their channel lineup.

The issue was brought up at the Archbold Village Council meeting, Monday night. Sept. 22.

Pat McCauley, government affairs manager of Time Warner, said the firm is in negotiations with Lin TV, owners of WUPW.

McCauly said if negotiations are not completed by Oct. 2, Time Warner will no longer have the right to carry the Fox station on its cable system.

Council also received notifi- cation that one or more of 16 to 18 channels might be dropped.

Councilmen questioned that letter, but McCauley said Time Warner is required to send out such letters when they begin renegotiating contracts.

He said agreements have been signed with most, if not all, of the channels.

Marcia Bruns, of RTEC Communications, said no changes are planned in its channel lineup.
