GSN Still Kicking on Time Warner N.Y. Systems


GSN still has a channel slot on two Time Warner Cable New York-based systems as the network and the MSO continue to negotiate a long-term carriage deal.

Time Warner said in March that it would drop GSN from its Syracuse, N.Y., and New York City systems as of April 30 and May 1, respectively, as part of an MSO review of its channel lineups and networks.

But the formerly titled Game Show Network was still on in both systems as of press time. A Time Warner spokesman would only say that the MSO “is still talking with [GSN] and we’re hopeful [for an agreement].”

But Syracuse-based newspaper The Post-Standard reported Friday that the MSO and the network have already reached a long-term carriage deal. GSN officials declined comment on the matter.
