The battle between CBS and Time Warner Cable has spilled over into cyberspace: The network says it will bar people who subscribe to TWC’s broadband service from seeing full episodes of TV shows normally available on CBS.com. “As soon as CBS is restored on Time Warner Cable systems in affected markets, that content will be accessible again,” says spokesman Dana McClintock. TWC says this goes too far, showing “utter lack of regard for consumers… including our high-speed data only customers.” Since CBS “enjoys the privilege of using public owned airwaves to deliver their programming – they should not be allowed to abuse that privilege.” TWC has about 11M broadband subscribers.
