Digi-TimeZ and TV TimeZ and Casting CallZ, OH MY!

More than 3 million Cablevision video subscribers lost access to local ABC affiliate WABC-TV at 12:01 am on Sunday morning after the MSO and Disney could not reach a retransmission agreement. Cablevision, which claims that WABC-TV has been seeking $40 million/year for the right to broadcast the signal, began broadcasting customer alerts on the missing channel 7 Sunday morning, instructing viewers to watch WABC-TV with rabbit ears or via ABC.com or Hulu.com.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced it is developing a videogame around ABC's The Bachelor for the Nintendo Wii and DS, due out this summer. Players can choose from a selection of avatars that best suit their personality, interact with multiple players and go through multiple "episodes" in their quest to receive the symbolic rose.
