The Internet has what cable TV doesn't -- even from Madison (WisconsinEye)

With the change of administration in Madison, which led to a political upheaval in the state capital that has now found its way to the Wisconsin Supreme Court, there's been a noticeable increase in public interest in state government news.

One place to feed that interest is Wisconsin Eye, the state public affairs TV outlet that's a Dairyland version of C-SPAN. A prime example came Monday, when Wisconsin Eye offered live coverage of the Wisconsin Supreme Court session looking into the legality of the governor's collective bargaining law.

If you're a Charter Cable subscriber, you could have watched it on Channel 995. But if you subscribe to southeast Wisconsin's cable giant, Time Warner Cable, you were out of luck.

I'm not going to rip Time Warner for its business decision. It would be nice and help with the company's image, but it's decided not to carry the channel. Wisconsin Eye has its own campaign to let Time Warner know that you want the channel. You can find the information here.

But these days, you don't have to whine as much about what you can't see on cable. You can watch the same thing on Wisconsin Eye's website.
