Help Get FEARnet Back on Time Warner Cable.

Posted by Peter Hall - April 2nd 2009 @ 8:41 pm

I’m reposting this verbatim from FEARnet.  I’ll be contacting Time Warner Cable when I get home and you should too if, like me, you’ve enjoyed their free flicks over the years.  I don’t even have Time Warner and I think this is bunk.


To all FEARnet fans who subscribe to Time Warner or Bright House Cable —

Time Warner and Bright House have dropped FEARnet from your cable line-up.  They have eliminated your on-demand access to horror, thriller and suspense movies 24/7.  If you want to once again see FEARnet on your cable system, your cable operator needs to hear from you.  Call 1-877-FEAR-247, we’ll connect you with your cable operator and you can let them know you want FEARnet (And be aware that for some customers, FEARnet is available on AT&T U-Verse and Verizon Fios). We hope you will be able to enjoy the premiere on-demand destination for horror, thriller and suspense films, uncut and unedited, including the following titles coming soon.

5 Never-Before-Seen Episodes of ‘Fear Itself’
Hostel
Hostel 2
Army Of Darkness
Clive Barker’s The Midnight Meat Train (Director’s Cut)
Bug
Boogeyman
Resident Evil
Candyman
Darkman
Christine
Vacancy 2
Frontier (s)
Phantasm
Captivity
Child’s Play
I Know Who Killed Me, starring Lindsay Lohan
Darkman
Snoop Dogg’s Hood of Horror

    Im sick of Time Warner! They tell you to watch Chiller as a substitute. What a joke. Just was a popular On demand. Want their customers to pay $4.99 for a 15 year old movie. Crooks

    I want fearnet back on on-demand its better then the lame chiller station and its on demand. If not I will switch from time warner to something that does carry it and does not tax me extra because I dont have time warner. Yeah I know about that too

    I TOO AM SICK OF WATCHING STUPID MOVIES THAT TIME WARNER SAID ARE COMPARABLE. ARE YOU KIDDING? TRY WATCHING CHILLER, SCIFI, TRUTV IS LIKE A PUNISHMENT, THEY ARE SO BAD AND OLD AND REALLY BORING. FEARNET IS GREAT AND I AM SO UNHAPPPY. I HAVE WRITTEN LETTERS, EMAILED AND EVEN CALLED. IKEEP GETTING THOSE PAT ANSWERS FROM TIME WARNER TO WATCH OTHER SHOWS. WHAT OTHER SHOWS?????IF YOU CAN FIND ANY, LET ME KNOW AS I AM PACING THE FLOOR.

    Grandma?

    I’m actually surprised at the reaction this has gotten. I don’t think TWC is going to give in, not without extorting a hefty ransom from FEARnet, but its good to know people are pissed.

    Fearnet was one of those rare gems you find unexpectedly. It is very bad business for twc to pull such a rare find they have in fearnet

    THINK TW? Why would u take off FEARNET when so many NEW & OLD viewers obviously watched it. I was such a fan. PUT IT BACK!

    MY NOTE TO TWC

    I understand that FEARNET is a channel that you want parents to be able to block so children are not exposed to it, but dropping the channel all together is a poor choice as it disappoints customers who enjoy FEARNET.

    SOLUTION : Put FEARNET on the Cutting Edge On Demand Channel. Any parent that does not want their lil kiddies to watch scary movies can put a block on that channel as it carries the same type of entertainment.

    ANOTHER SOLUTION : Create a FEARNET ON-DEMAND Channel.

    Dropping this channel has made me very upset and has cut off a genre of entertainment enjoyed by many. The Chiller Channel is not an appropriate substitute.

    I WANT FEARNET BACK!!!!

    WB, that’s how it was here in LA, Fearnet on demand and available under “Cutting Edge” and “Free Movies”

    and to everyone, did TW actually say to watch Chillers and Sce-Fi instead? I gotta see that corporate statement.

    Give it back !! I frequently need a horror fix – with fearnet I could get fixed anytime. Without fearnet I have to search and search for a horror movie to get my fear-fix – and I seldom find one. We NEED fearnet…. to quote from “House On Haunted Hill” I WANT IT — YOU GIVE IT!!

  20. May 11th, 2009 | 11:20 pm | #20

    Hey everyone. First off, thanks to all the horror fans standing up for FEARnet. And we get why you’re upset – we’re pretty pissed too. I’m working with the network and we’ve got an official petition going on FEARnet’s Facebook fan page to get the network back.

    If you have a second, please become a fan and send along to your friends. We’re hoping to get 50,000 fans to get the channel back on TW and Bright House cable.

    FEARnet has to be brought back. I have been a horror fan for 58 years,starting with collecting horror comics at 8 years old. Movies, books,(some correspondence with Stephen King) my love for horror has never waned. I need FEARnet!

    This is such BS. I hate Time Warner. Their cable is crap, but unfortunately that is about the only choice I have. Fear Net was one of the best channels and tonight I go to watch something and I can’t find it. I noticed the Chiller channel a few weeks ago and thought “Thank god there is Fear Net!” I had no idea I was wrong and Time Warner took it off and replaced it with that garbage. BRING BACK FEAR NET!!

    Come on Fearnet-if you are not with time warner,then where are you now?
    Why does the dedicated viewer pay the price?
    Is it something we said?
    what ever happened to win-win?
    Help us to understand.

    I WANT FEARNET BACK. How dare they take it down. Fear net was my life, and they make great movies and shows. Their shows like ’30 days of night’ was kick ass, and ‘midnight meat train’ was awesome. fEAR net is a GOOD THING and you dont get rid of good things.

  29. July 17th, 2009 | 11:39 am | #29

    I;m so pissed that fearnet is gone!I loved it and was so happy when they (comcast)finally got it.Then I moved down south to Florida and still enjoyed it more.I then couldn’t afford cable and I’m just getting cable back a very long time.I just knew fearnet was going to be there that was the only reason I wanted it in the first place.Brighthouse doesn’t even have a subsitute now that’s BS!!!

    I;m just about ready to cancel the cable and try dish or AT&T. Warner has no problem with uping the price and adding garbage that no one wants. I and many friends like this channel and want an explanation why they took it off.

  31. July 19th, 2009 | 1:49 pm | #31

    “I want fearnet back….”PLEASE”…..:(

  32. July 19th, 2009 | 1:52 pm | #32

    I really want fearnet back on, that was the best channel ever. There is never anything in t.v. butt you can always count on fearnet. I really want it back or I will have to switch cable company’s. This really sucks!!!!!

    Time warner and fearnet need to work something out because it was the best channel for horror. Syfy,chiller, and sluth channel show stupid,lame reruns of shows I watched 12-15 years ago. Get real, I think they knew fearnet had excellent movies and could not charge a little extra for them. Shame on you Time Warner, grow a pair and bring back the FEARNET!

    TIME WARNER is pure evil. I have NEVER read or heard ONE decent thing EVER regarding their services and pricing. Unfortunately, and they are obviously aware of this…they are a necessary evil. But the company their employees will rot in hell – and rightfully so.

  43. October 16th, 2010 | 11:08 pm | #43

    this shit is fucked up they should have fear net back on cable they have the best movies this sucks
