More Chicago stations are disappearing from Racine's Time-Warner lineup.
Or maybe it's just a glitch that suddenly, and without warning, brings up a blank screen tonight whenever I click over to:
WMAQ, NBC, Channel 5Didn't notice this until emailed by an alert RacinePost reader, and it's now too late to get an answer from Time-Warner's customer service.
WLS, ABC, Channel 7
WGN, Superstation, Channel 9
WFLD, Fox, Channel 13
Wonder if it has anything to do with the "realignment" Time-Warner made in September and October of 2009, that cost us WTTW, Channel 11, the Chicago PBS station.
The missing network programs, of course, are still available on the Milwaukee stations remaining on our cable system. But anyone who wanted to keep up with Chicago and Illinois news, or the various syndicated shows those stations offered, is out of luck.
UPDATE: Mark Czerniec reports in the comments, below, that Time-Warner is blaming an outage, and says it's being repaired. You can follow the issue on Twitter.
I emailed Time-Warner Help, and got a quick, although ambiguous, response:
"Last I was told is that we are still working on the issue. I was unable to get an estimated time when the channels would be returned. Sorry for the inconvenience."Wonder how much this will reduce our cable bill?
