According to a Public Notice in the Classified Ads in last Wednesday's (Nov. 20) Bangor Daily News, Time Warner Cable advises they will be dropping NECN effective Dec. 31. It doesn't say which systems around Maine will be effected; but I would presume, since it was in the Bangor Daily News, it will be the Bangor System which serves Eastern Maine.
Needless to say I am not pleased, and will be firing off some letters/emails to appropriate personnel. I'm curious as to just how many viewers NECN has here in DownEast Maine. I find their weather very informative, as most of our weather comes from Southern New England; although WLBZ and WABI provide excellent local weather coverage.
It just annoys me that they would be dropping a valuable news outlet, instead of some of the other lesser-watched channels.
