Yeah, I found this out this morning. And am not happy. I have a friend with Dish, so I'll be able to hit up stuff on ESPN and ABC, I guess, but it'd be annoying to have to leave my house whenever I want to see something on the affected channels.
Not sure on alternate solutions. Unless "Someone needs to utterly terrorize Disney/Spectrum executives until the concept of even leaving their mansions petrifies them with fear" or "Take a couple heads and tell the survivors to be better" count as solutions.
