To the Editor:
The Area Nine Cable Council (ANCC) has received a number of complaints regarding the current dispute between Cablevision and the Scripps Network over carrying the HGTV and the Food Network, which were dropped from Cablevision's channel lineup when the contract between Scripps and Cablevision expired on January 1, 2010.
ANCC urges the parties to come to a quick resolution to get the channels back on Cablevision. Although it is not appropriate for the cable council to take sides in a financial dispute between these companies, the ANCC regrets that the many subscribers who wish to view these channels have become the victims of this disagreement.
The Area Nine Cable Council is an advisory group made up of volunteers appointed by the towns of Darien, Easton, Greenwich, New Canaan, Norwalk, Redding, Stamford, Weston, Westport & Wilton in the Cablevision of Connecticut franchise area. More information about ANCC and its work can be found at: http://www.westportct.net/ancc/
