DirecTV and WCVB (Hearst) at odds
Wed Dec 15 16:17:58 EST 2010
Well, I consider it "high stakes negotiation" from a business standpoint,
but "bullying" the viewers into making panic calls to their TV providers.
Keep the negotiations in the conference room. I think involving the
customers is sleazy and a really cheap move.
I talked with a Time-Warner exec.here who says their customer service lines
are clogged with abusive viewer calls. All the rep. can say," I'm sorry but
it's out of my hands."
