Fight for Fright: Time Warner and Brighthouse Cable Slash FEARNet


If you’re on this site, I can’t imagine you not having a pretty sweet cable package to watch all sorts of awesome movies as they air or On-Demand.  If, like a few of us Rejects, you have Time Warner Cable (or Brighthouse), then your cable package is replaced some of the sweet with a healthy dose of bitter.

In some move that I’m sure is being justified as cost cutting or what not, Time Warner and Brighthouse are removing FearNet from their packages.  This means no Twilight Zone marathons, no laughable episodes of Freddy’s Nightmares and, most damning, no On-Demand streaming of Fear Itself or any of the more than a dozen movies they would have ready at any one time.  Some of which were in HD.  Double bummer.

Like any good genre fan should do, fight to get what’s yours back.  Tell Time Warner and Brighthouse that FEARNet is a desirable channel and that we all still want it.  You can do so by joining the Facebook petition to save the channels here.  I’ve done it and so should you, because of peer pressure and of my personal desire to spend even more time in front of a TV watching free horror movies.  If you still need convincing on why FEARNet should be saved, check out what would be upcoming straight to you cable box if it were still there.  Fight for FEARNet.

What do you think of this bogus announcement?  Will you sign the petition?
