CBS Ads Push Viewers to Drop Time-Warner Cable

From Reuters:

The ads, which feature a much-anticipated matchup between star sibling NFL quarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning, are designed to highlight what Time Warner subscribers would miss should the blackout in those major markets extends into the rabidly followed football season. 
CBS's ad, which began airing this week in the three largest affected markets, encouraged viewers to "tell your friends with Time Warner Cable to switch providers now, so they'll be ready for the games on CBS."


Stay classy CBS!
