"Fuse TV: Fuse TV is no longer available on Time Warner Cable as of December 16, 2011.
Based on national ratings information—and our own customer research—we have concluded that there is little appeal for this network. And in challenging economic times, we have to make the tough choices to minimize costs, particularly in the case of channels that so few customers watch.
We continually evaluate networks and how they fit into our overall video offering, and strive to put together the most compelling mix of programming at competitive price points. The costs of continuing to carry Fuse just don’t make sense for us or our customers.
Where to find similar programming:
On TV*: MC on Demand, MTV2, MTV Hits, MTV Jams, VH1 Classic, and others Online: fusemusic.com (where they offer free streaming, downloads, interviews, clips, and more); YouTube; Vimeo; and others *All channels not available in all areas.
Q: Is this why you dropped Fuse?
A: No. Less than 1% of our customers watch Fuse, according to national ratings information. We have to make tough choices to keep prices reasonable for our customers, particularly in the case of channels that so few customers watch. That’s why we no longer carry Fuse."
I actually do watch Fuse occasionally for music videos, considering its the only channel in HD that still plays music videos often. Was disappointed about this.
As a Rangers hockey fan I hope they get rid of MSG, the NHL blacks out Rangers games when the Sabres are on (which is A LOT) because of asinine blackout rules. So, I hope everyone has to suffer like me! That plus I think it is another black eye for Time Warner, just another reason for people to switch providers.
(I'm a little bitter at TW currently as they jacked my bill up 28 dollars and then were real jerks when I called and politely told them I couldn't afford it)
I don't think it's blacked out anymore. They added channel 1710, which is dedicated to Sabres games. The Rangers are either on MSG or MSG-HD but not both when the Sabres are playing. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Actually, that's not accurate. The Rangers are blacked out when Buffalo has a home game. It's ridiculously frustrating, and why I'm forced to buy the NHL Center Ice package, because no games are blacked out there. If MSG pulls the plug on their programming, at least i can watch the Rangers on the CI package.
