American Idol begins season 9 on January 12, at 8 PM... but will we be able to see it?
Time Warner Cable is in contract disputes with FOX Networks over pricing. FOX wants to charge Time Warner $1.00 for every subscriber it has, and the cable company say "NO WAY!" The contract does not go into effect until Jan 2, 2010, which means locally, any cable subscribers could be in the black as far as their favorite FOX shows.
TWC is refusing to negotiate with FOX over the issue, saying it would need to raise all of it's cable prices. Insiders say this could change the way network series are sold in the future.
Let's hope we get to see Idol Season 9!!
