issued a press release saying Time Warner Cable
(TWC) rejected a Most Favored Nation (MFN) deal and ended negotiations ... so Sinclair will take its 33 stations off TWC systems serving some 8.5M “primary service units.” --- Here's TWC's statement: "Sinclair's statement is false. Time Warner Cable has at no time told Sinclair that we were terminating negotiations. To the contrary, it is Sinclair who has repeatedly over the last 3 months declared discussions to be at an end and this is more of the same from Sinclair. Time Warner Cable has presented Sinclair with at least three possible solutions, including arbitration for Sinclair's Big 4 stations. We remain open and willing to negotiate a reasonable agreement for our customers and have no intention of declaring negotiations to be at an end even in the event that Sinclair decides to pull their signals from Time Warner Cable on December 31st."
