If you're one of the few Time Warner Cable subscribers who discovered some CBS prime time series like "CSI: Miami" were being carried on cable through a Canadian affiliate, I hope you enjoyed it.
That's because the practice -- which allowed local cable viewers to watch CBS shows despite the feud between TWC and Channel 4's owner, LIN TV, -- has ended.
TWC spokesman Robin Wolfgang and Channel 4 General Manager Chris Musial confirmed that the cable company has to blackout the Canadian station to comply with non-duplication regulations even though CBS affillate WIVB-TV is not carried on TWC.
A Channel 4 researcher said today that not enough viewers watched "CSI: Miami" Monday on CFTO-TV in Toronto via cable to register a rating.
