NEW YORK (OCN) — If you plan to see the Oscars this coming Sunday, you will want to help Save ABC 7 by visiting SaveABC7.com so you can send a letter as see below to Cablevision.
Subject: Lose my shows, lose my business
ABC7 is home to shows I watch every day like, Eyewitness News, Oprah, Live with Regis & Kelly, Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, and shows I watch every week, like Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy and Modern Family!
There are more choices than ever when it comes to television service. So, if you lose my shows, you will lose my business.
Will it work? It will most likely not work as ABC/Disney and Cablevision will keep blaming each other and may take weeks before its back on the service. An alternate method is to get yourself to Target, Walmart, CVS or any place selling HDTV antennas and converter boxes so you can watch the programming.
Unfortunately, it will cost about US$100 (if it is still in stock) unless you try to improvise or make the equipment yourself from parts from a local RadioShack. We believe ABC/Disney will do the right thing and turn it on.
ABC/Disney has advertisers who needs to display their expensive ads during the broadcast and that could have advertisers pulling out for other networks so you may find the broadcast through Cablevision on once more during the broadcast.
