That sounds an awful lot like the lineup I got stuck with while staying at the La Quinta on Park Avenue in Portland, ME in September of 2009: WCSH (NBC), WMTW (ABC), WCBB (PBS), WGME (CBS), WPFO (FOX), four different HBO channels and little else. Compared that to the Clarion Suites I stayed in last month in Portland. It had the same LodgeNet remote and information channel like La Quinta. However, the lineup, save for HBO being placed on cable channel 2, seemed to be the actual lineup from Time-Warner cable. The above five locals were carried, along with WPME (MY), WPXT (CW) and WENH (PBS) from Durham, NH. Even better? The room was actually cheaper that night than what La Quinta would've charged me.
Yes, I was in Portland, ME for a reason. Me and my brother made the 200 mile trek from Connecticut to see an AHL hockey game. My brother didn't care much for the lineup, other than the local news. (We used to live near Portland and checked out WCSH, to see what was different and who was still there.)
