Arvig channels may go dark if contract dispute isn't resolved
Arvig cable subscribers could lose popular Viacom channels, including MTV, Nickelodeon and TV Land, if a contract dispute isn’t resolved by March 31.
The Perham-based cable company pays programmers like Viacom a monthly per-channel fee. As contracts near expiration, new agreements are negotiated. This time, Viacom is insisting on an increase that is about 40 times the rate of inflation, according to a press release from Arvig.
