Time Warner Blocking Network Channels

I have Time Warner Cable (NYC) and it looks like ABC and NBC are blocked so I can't transfer a show from one Tivo to another. CBS seems fine, haven't checked FOX or CW.

Anyone else having this problem? I believe this is illegal--restricting broadcast channels and am looking for help in dealing with the problem.

Complain to the FCC.

Seriously.

I complained to the FCC, though I bet there is nobody working there anymore.

There are some unique waivers to the broadcast station rules in NYC, I believe TWC has approval to protect the broadcast networks in NYC

Don't worry .... the shutdown will have no impact on their (meaningless) response to your complaint.
