Time Warner Cable's Genius Solution to Possible Fox Outage: The Internet!

PSSSSST! Hey, Time Warner Cable! If you tell everyone how to watch Fox shows from their PC, they'll probably start doing it for all your other programming, too! Self-defeating bitterness really is the perfect way to say goodbye to 2009.

The spat between Time Warner and News Corp has been escalating steadily this week, with the latter threatening to pull their content at midnight tonight unless the two sides reach an agreement on subscription fees. Thus far, Time Warner Cable's main response has been to produce silly full-page ads, but now they've pulled out the big guns: spilling the dirty little secret that'll some day put them out of the TV business.

You could watch their how-to video below, but for a full explanation I'd recommend our own Giz guides to living without cable or satellite TV and to home theater PCs. In the meantime, let's all just sit back and enjoy watching two corporate monoliths greed themselves to death.
