Viacom, Time Warner Cable Argue Over Fees; Explain THAT to Your Family's Sponge Bob and Dora the Explorer Fans

Cable subscribers in the Southeast, New York, southern California, and Texas may be the victims of a battle between Viacom and Time Warner Cable over fees. Viacom wants higher fees to continue to allow Time Warner to carry such popular channels as Nickolodeon, Comedy Central, Spike TV, VH1, and MTV; Time Warner won't agree, it says because of the bad economy. Here's more from NPR. Here's a link to Viacom's statement on the subject. I could not find a statement on the matter on Time Warner's website. As of midnight, January 1, subscribers may lose access to these networks. Happy New Year.
