(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – One of the region’s biggest cable television providers has lost several channels associated with Turner Broadcasting.  The company reportedly failed to reach an agreement with Cable ONE about the continued streaming of channels like TruTV, TBS, Cartoon Network, and CNN. Cable ONE officials say Turner wanted to significantly increase the cost of subscribing to certain channels, primarily because of low ratings generating poor advertising revenue. Cable ONE customers will be credited in their monthly bill for the lost channels. Authorities hope to negotiate an agreement with Turner in the near future to restore service.
