The article reveals the financial conflict between cable channels owner Viacom and Time Warner Cable in the U.S. Because the financial negotiations broke down, subscribers of Time Warner will lose channels such as Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and MTV. According to Viacom, it is seeking an increase of less than $0.25 per month, per subscriber, which it said adds up to less than a penny per day for all 19 of MTV Networks' channels.
