Charter Communications

FEATURES
February 6, 2010
After reading Jason Wells’ Jan. 16 article “City’s fight for GTV6 pays off,” I was hoping to get an update on the situation between the city of Glendale and Charter Communications. Is the situation still at a stalemate following the restraining order against Charter, or are the two sides close to reaching an agreement? It is an understatement to say that, over the years, Charter has not been an easy company with which to do business. However, I know that I speak for a number of Glendale and Burbank residents when I say that we were excited that Charter was finally bringing new high-definition channels to the area after two years of unchanged service.

BURBANK — Glendale city attorneys on Friday asked a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge to block Charter Communications from changing local government access channels. Superior Court Judge Donna Fields Goldstein didn’t make a decision on the preliminary injunction request, but issued a temporary restraining order in January that blocked Charter from reassigning the channels, a change that would have moved the Emmy-award-winning GTV6 to channel 3. Charter’s plan would shift Glendale’s public access channels, including channels 15, 16 and 21, with its entire channel lineup.

In another attempt to show its power over Glendale residents, the government has won a court battle to retain the GTV6 channel at its same location on the dial, which is a loss for all residents. That city officials think we are so stupid not to be able to understand the simple operation of a channel changer, or possess the ability read a newspaper, is beyond belief. GTV6 has been a long-running advertisement for city services and has little if any relation to the daily lives of residents.

In Joyce Rudolph’s Jan. 13 article on longtime La Crescenta resident Bill Bowman, “Centenarian shares secrets,” she mentions in the opening paragraph that Bowman attributes living to be 100 years of age to three things: “A balanced diet, daily walk and good Irish whiskey . . . ” In the article she describes how Bowman approaches his diet and how far he walks every day, but she fails to mention how much or what kind of “good Irish whiskey” he drinks every day. Now, I am very interested in living a longer life, but I am not quite sure whether I am drinking enough Irish whiskey or too little, let alone the fact that I might be drinking the wrong brand.

BURBANK — A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge on Friday granted Glendale’s request for a temporary injunction blocking a Charter Communications plan to reassign local public access channels. Charter’s plan to reassign GTV6 and others to new channels was to take effect Tuesday, but the restraining order granted in a Burbank courtroom Friday would likely postpone those plans to at least early February, when the judge will consider a more permanent restraining order, officials said.

CITY HALL — City officials requested a restraining order in federal court Tuesday in an attempt to block Charter Communications from rearranging the local channel line-up, including Glendale’s Emmy Award-winning government access channel GTV6. Charter Communications officials said Wednesday that the company hopes to proceed with the scheduled channel realignment in the Glendale, Burbank, La Cañada, La Crescenta and Montrose areas Tuesday despite protests from city officials and ongoing legal wrangling with Glendale regarding the GTV6 change.

CITY HALL — Charter Communications is seeking nearly $1 million it claims the city owes in back payments for use of a communications network. The claim — filed in December under the name Marcus Cable Associates, which merged with Charter — stems from a dispute over whether the city must pay the cable company for use of an intranet system and cable modem services. The intranet provides “core communications” for the city and services City Hall, the police and fire stations, libraries and schools, said Christina Sansone, the city attorney handling the claim.
