Seneca County viewers want their Channel 8

In hot dog terms, Seneca County is the place where Rochester’s Zweigle’s and Syracuse’s Hofmann go head-to-head in the grocery store and at the stand.

But when it comes to TV markets, there’s no battle of the wieners. Syracuse is the primary TV market, according to Nielson.

Thus, Spectrum TV was apparently within its rights to drop CBS affiliate Channel 8 from its lineup in Seneca County.

Readers reached out to the Finger Lakes Times this past week to express their displeasure with the decision to drop Channel 8 from the cable lineup serving the county.

A Facebook post by the Finger Lakes Times asking folks if they still had Channel 8 brought a cascade of comments — many of them negative — toward Spectrum, the voice, internet and cable company that took over Time Warner Cable earlier this year after the companies merged.

People have complained about the pricing policies of the new company and customer service since Spectrum officially took over. The loss of Channel 8, and the fact that the company apparently did not send out any notices of the programming changes, irked at least some of its customers.
