[UPDATE: see comment #3, below]
I asked a number of GCI subscribers, today, if they ever remember GCI dropping a channel. No one could think of any.
That doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened, but also, the timing is highly suspect, and it sure is strange to see only 1 gap between channels 1 and 51. There no longer is a channel 29, which was TruTV just a few days ago.
After part 1 did air, Jesse Ventura (host of “Conspiracy Theory”) lost a gentleman’s bet, because he didn’t think the series would actually be broadcast, because of what the episodes reveal. But I wonder if he had thought that cable companies would pull the plug on the entire channel! GCI’s official statement doesn’t make sense [underlining, my emphasis]:
Programming Update Unfortunately, GCI’s negotiations for a contract renewal with Tru TV have ended with a less satisfactory outcome. Effective January 1, 2010, Tru TV will no longer be available on channel 29 (or channel 40 in Fort Greely.) Similar programming is available on the following networks (channels): E! (27), TNT (31), TLC (55), History (58), A&E (59), Oxygen (80), Bravo (83), Investigation Discovery (106), Biography (203), & History International (204.)
For example, only one of these ‘similar’ channels even aired one program that in part questioned the official 9/11 story. And then they mocked the 9/11 experts who were promised this wouldn’t be a hit-piece. Jesse’s series was the first since 9/11 to present this side of the issue fairly.
It costs TruTV almost nothing to send their signal to another community. It’s win-win for them. Why are they the only channel dropped by GCI — and before this important and totally rare series has been allowed to completely run, along with the many reruns?
Amazing coincidence or conspiracy?
