CANTONMENT, Fla. (AP) - Montey Chapel and his family in Florida are among many planning to watch the Florida Gators and Penn State in Saturday's Outback Bowl.
But they and millions of others around the country could fall victim to a long-running feud in the TV industry over the fees that cable providers pay to carry channels.
As a midnight Friday deadline approaches, Sinclair Broadcast Group still doesn't have a deal with cable TV operators Time Warner Cable Inc. and Bright House Networks.
However, Time Warner Cable said late Thursday that it will continue to provide Big 4 network programming this weekend even if Sinclair pulls local programming.
Such a plan could mean that college football fans may be able to watch the Outback Bowl on ABC.
