Does anyone know if Time Warner can legally apply 0x02 to a local broadcast channel's digital subchannel? It's broadcast over-the-air so I would assume they cannot.

But here in Buffalo they are. (it's WGRZ 2.2, on their digital cable as 114)

If they're not allowed to, how can I get them to stop? Even if they're in violation of a single channel I want to turn them in.

Verizon FiOS Enforces Copy Starting July 31st

I just got a letter in the mail from Verizon today and have found one other online so far saying your card must be activated and that starting July 31st they will be enforcing the copy once broadcast flags on FiOS TV. Even a zipped copy of the PDF would be larger than this forum allows attachments by about 44k, but someone on another forum has scanned the letter already.

TWC doesn't care what you do or don't watch as long as the money's the same.

WGRZ has a financial interest in having you watch that channel.

Contact WGRZ and have them jump in TWC's s*1t about it.

Wouldn't hurt to tell the FCC, either.

I tweeted TW about them going against the FCC by blocking that channel. They tweeted me back in about 10 minutes

They're "looking into it". Should be fairly straight-forward, especially when I explained to them exactly what they need to do.

If they don't fix it, I'll contact someone else.

At least they're warning you guys.

When I was on Verizon FiOS in WA, before we got switched to Frontier, we (in WA and OR) had what we thought was an outage affecting most channels.

Turns out, they turned on CP on almost every channel (except the ones available OTA and a curious holes) but we hadn't paired our cards yet, since it wasn't necessary before. I wasted hours on the phone w/them. A few others here on TC were in the same boat.

Local channels and their digital sub-channels are 0x00
all other channels (basic analog and digital) are 0x02
