Time Warner news channel freezes

By Mark Washburn

Some Time Warner Cable customers awoke Friday to find the company’s news channel frozen in time.

Engineers were performing routine maintenance on the system overnight when something went wrong and News 14 Carolina’s screen froze up at 1:33 a.m. – with a picture of U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan and the temperature bug showing 32 degrees in Salisbury.

It remained that way until about 8:30 a.m. when the glitch was fixed, TWC spokesman Scott Pryzwansky said Friday.

Only the system’s analog channel was affected, he said. News 14’s digital channel continued broadcasting normally.
