我家两个宝都很喜欢Nickelodeon的节目, 如Blue's Clues, Spongebob, Max and Ruby, Dora, Diego, Wow Wow Wubbzy, Wonderpet等, 所以圣诞前在TOYSRUS 网上有送Wonderpets Linny/Ming-Ming的DEAL时就忍不住跳了. 圣诞时打开后小宝就喜欢将Ming Ming 抱着, 有一天小宝自己喝水的时候将杯子送到Ming Ming的嘴里, 后来爸爸帮她拿着Ming Ming时, 妈妈就抢拍到了这一幕, 呵呵
12月31号当Timer Warner Cable要在新年开始的时刻DROP OFF Viacom的19个频道包括Nicklodeon, Noggin的消息时, 我们都有些惊讶, 因为这就意味着将来两个宝只能看DVD或Disney Channel了, 好在问题还是解决了, 虽然具体情况还不清楚, 我们怀疑他们多半会增加收费, 虽然从我们使用以来费用不经意间早已增加过可能不止一次了.
Time Warner Cable Dispute Settled
Hawaii Would Have Lost Channels At Midnight

HONOLULU -- Viacom reached a deal with Time Warner Cable and ended its threat to pull 19 channels from TWC systems nationwide.
Shortly after agreeing to extend a midnight deadline by one hour, the two sides reached a deal on a new contract, TWC spokesman Alex Dudley said.
A Time Warner spokesman said Viacom is seeking "an exorbitant increase in their carriage fees." Viacom had threatened to pull the plug on popular channels, including MTV, VH1, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon.
Time Warner Cable owns Hawaii's Oceanic Cable.
Viacom had asked for fee increases of between 22 and 36 percent per channel, adding up to tens of millions of dollars per year, an amount that Time Warner said would cause an increase in customers' cable bills. But Viacom contended that the increases would cost less than 25 cents a month per subscriber.
Details of the deal were not immediately disclosed.
