KITV is back on Oceanic after parent companies reach a deal

By Erika Engle


An agreement has been reached between New York-based Hearst Television and Time Warner Cable Inc. that allowed KITV to return to Oceanic cable today at about 3:30 p.m.

Oceanic Cable said on Twitter: "Great news! Time Warner has reached a long-term agreement with Hearst. Customers can expect their signals to be restored shortly"

KITV, the ABC-TV affiliate in Honolulu, had not been available on Oceanic cable since July 10.

Is that a new TV station? What are they good for? You can only watch one station at a time anyway so why broadcast another one unless it is good for something other than taking up air time.

KITV's advertisers must be happy: They have been paying for advertising to a lost audience. Hopefully Time Warner held fast and did not fall prey to the greedy Hearst Corp. who wanted to have cable customers pay for their sliding ad revenues.

Hearst's declining magazine subscriptions must be forcing them to ask for mo money for the liberal political campaigns.
