BROADER BLACKOUT? In N.Y., Don Kaplan reports Time Warner Cable amid "its nasty contractual dispute" with CBS is now "threatening to yank a slew of other channels." A legal notice "quietly posted" by TWC in newspapers yesterday indicated the company's deals with "more than 50 channels are due to expire soon." The notice stated, "We may be required to cease carriage of one or more of these ... stations in the near future." NHL Network is among the stations. Meanwhile, sources said that TWC and CBS "have been in constant contact on the phone and by email but 'are not negotiating'" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 8/8).
