Disputes over fees that result in channels being blacked out
seem to be occurring more regularly than ever, and as we've found out can even extend to internet access
for streaming TV shows. So what would you do, or have you done when (insert channel here) goes off the air after negotiations for a new contract stall right before (insert major TV event here) airs and even John Kerry
can't make it right? We remember the great Viacom dispute of 2008
, if we had missed even a single episode of The Hills
, there would have been serious repercussions for all involved.
