Time Warner Cable promotes alternative for watching Packers game

NBC 26

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The continued Time Warner Cable and NBC 26 dispute will prevent Green Bay Packers fans in Fox Valley from watching the pre-season game tonight.

However, a Time Warner spokesman says there is an alternative – Telemundo. He says customers will need a cable box and the broadcast is in Spanish.

Contract negotiations with the station’s parent company, Journal Communications, and Time Warner Cable have lasted a couple months with no resolution.

Time Warner refused a contract extension on July 25th and pulled 15 Journal Broadcasting TV stations signals, including WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee. 

The WGBA-TV's station’s general manager says negotiations have “stalled”.
