As Cable ONE continues to work towards a resolution to its current dispute with Turner Networks, it announced Friday that it is temporarily replacing missing Turner Networks programming that was dropped Tuesday with previews of new channels.

The Hallmark Channel will preview temporarily on the Turner Classic Movie Channel, Science Channel will temporarily preview on TNT, and the Game Show Network will temporarily preview on Cartoon Network.

These channels will start previewing in most markets between Oct. 4-9.

Cable ONE is continuing to examine possible previews to run on CNN and TBS.

The company will provide more information about that programming as it becomes available.

Earlier, Cable ONE announced the removal of Turner Network channels CNN, CNN en Espanol, Headline News, Turner Classic Movies, TruTV, and Boomerang from its channel line-up following the expiration of the Cable ONE/Turner Network contract.

Following this announcement, Turner Network deauthorized signals to TNT, TBS, and the Cartoon Network, despite the fact that Cable ONE has a valid contract to continue carriage of these channels.

“Turner has chosen to punish our customers by deauthorizing the signals for these channels so that they will no longer receive them,” said Trish Niemann, Cable ONE public relations manager. “We believe that they have deauthorized these channels in retaliation for us dropping their less popular programming.”

Cable ONE has announced that they will be crediting customers. Customers do not need to call in to receive their credit – it will automatically be applied to an upcoming billing statement.
