  • Member business YCN Now is in a struggle to have TDS carry their WYCU/YCN programming on the TDS new fiber TV service. YCN is currently carried on the TDS analog cable service. YCN has been run around in circles since June. With every passing day that new subscribers are added to their new system YCN looses viewership of YCN News, Game of the Week, Kearsarge Chronicle, Capital Connections and specials like the Kearsarge Chorale concert Thanksgiving week and parades from the New London Hospital Days and Warner Fall Foliage Festival. The problem is that should TDS decide to carry YCN in the first quarter of next year, it still takes another 60 to 90 days to get on the air because of subscriber notification requirements. Please contact TDS at http://info.tdstelecom.com/tdstv/channelrequestform and let them konw that you want YCN Now on their fiber TV service. Thank you for your help, Greg Uhrin, GM & COO, YCN ... Your Local View!
