For some of us the loss of the FX channel means a lot considering a lot of the best TV shows are carried by the network. Shows like Sons Of Anarchy, Nip Tuck, Damages, Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and the hit new show The League; which all about guys wheeling and dealing to improve their Fantasy Football teams. For millions of Fantasy football players out there this show is exactly what it's like to run a team.

While there is still time for Time Warner to continue to bring America one of the top channels, time is running out and it does not look good. With New Years only eight days away a lot of people holiday TV lineups are in jeopardy.

With the loss of FX if you plan on just watching one of the BCS College Football bowl games that won't happen either. Once you lose FX you also lose Fox, which will be airing The Sugar Bowl between No.3 Cincinnati vs. No.5 Florida, Cotton Bowl No.19 Oklahoma St vs. Mississippi, Tostitos Fiesta Bowl No.4 TCU vs. No.6 Boise St, and the Fed Ex Orange Bowl No.10 Iowa vs. No.9 Georgia Tech.

For Time Warner they couldn't have picked a worst time to put out their Roll Over Or Get Tough Campaign. The campaign is Time Warner trying to say that networks are causing them to drive prices up on all of their customers. But yet Dish Network will still be bringing their loyal customers those same channels that many Time Warner customers stand to lose at a lower price.

They can try and spin the situation anyway they want with a revenue of $46.98 billion in 2008 maybe they should pay their top CEO's less in bonuses and focus more on keeping their loyal customers. All they can do is blame themselves as customers start to find out there are cheaper and better options out there like Dish Network.

Below are the main target areas for the Roll Over Or Get Tough Campaign
Albany NY
Austin TX
Beaumont TX
Charleston SC
Columbus OH
Corpus Christi
Dallas/Ft. Worth
El Paso
Florence/Myrtle Beach
Green Bay

Kansas City
Los Angeles
New York
San Antonio
San Diego

If you had plans of sitting around a chimney fire watching your favorite FX shows with your family on New Years day that may change. If Time Warner does not agree with Fox Network to keep the programming in tact, starting Dec.31 at midnight all of your Fox network channels will be blacked out. The sad thing about it is that you will not only lose the regular Fox channel but many others as well.
