Spectrum Cable Set To Drop 23 Channels

JAMESTOWN-Cable giant Spectrum will drop 23 cable networks according to parent company Viacom.

These networks include: MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, VH1, BET, CMT, Spike, Nick Jr., TV Land, Logo, MTV2, Nicktoons, TeenNick, MTV Classic, NickMusic, MTV Live, BET Her, CMT Music, BET Jams, Tr3s, BET Soul, Nick 2 and MTVU.

Spectrum says Viacom is trying to overcharge for its programming and channels.

Viacom says it has made several offers, but so far has not been able to meet the conditions Spectrum has proposed.

The contract between Viacom and Spectrum’s parent company Charter Communications expires at midnight.





  1. I am paying based upon an agreed upon level of service that you now are changing / downgrading. Unbelievable ! Like my buying a car from you then upon delivery, you decide to give me a different model– one with a lot fewer features that I wanted. Non ethical and should be illegal. If you do this, I may reluctantly need to look elsewhere, as I watch some of these channels. Reduce the service, then reduce the price !

  2. Spectrum should not let these channels go. Many of us have cable because our children watch these channels. I am sure spectrum can work out some sort of compromise. They will loose many customers. What is next Spectrum? You raised our rates and now dropping channels. Our monthly bill better go down significantly

  3. THE worst cable company I’ve ever heard of or used. I just moved here from NJ and did not the appearance or experience. You will never gain a review from me that is actually a good statement. Hope you guys go out of business

  4. I remember when they took over Time Warner vowing more channels for less money. All customers are yet to see that happen. You can bet that when they drop the Viacom channels they’ll still want the same amount for their monthly service. Spectrum is a scam and a joke. And they wonder why more & more customers are ditching cable services. If they don’t work out a deal with Viacom to keep those channels then they’ll be hit hard by customers who drop their cable service. Too many of us are already on the verge of dropping them and this would seal their fate for us. Thanks for absolutely nothing Spectrum!!

  5. we just had to lower our bill, because of the raise in prices…then now this, makes us want to drop cable all-to-gether. we have been with charter a long time. We are looking to go the web for better sevice for a lot lease.
