A statement from Brad Siegel, Vice Chairman, gmc TV, related to Viacom | Cablevision litigation:


"The aggressive stance taken by large media conglomerates leaves less room and money to go around for independent, vibrant programmers that serve smaller, but passionate audiences that love and want the family-friendly programming offered on GMC and Aspire.  We have raised this issue to Washington D.C. lawmakers for years; however it is one that continues to plague independent programmers. This is another concrete example of how this problem that has not been addressed continues to play out, ultimately hurting the consumer."
