CBS on Air in NY, LA, Dallas with Time Warner Deal 9/2/13
NEW YORK (AP) - TV network CBS and cable provider Time Warner Cable have ended their month long dispute and resumed broadcast programming in millions of homes in New York, Dallas and Los Angeles.
The agreement ends a blackout of CBS and CBS-owned channels that included Showtime Networks, CBS Sports Network and the Smithsonian channel. The contract disagreement started Aug. 2 and affected more than 3 million homes. Broadcasting resumed Monday evening on the East Coast.
The companies were in dispute over how much Time Warner Cable Inc. would pay for CBS Corp. programming. Terms of the deal haven't been disclosed.
The agreement includes retransmission fees the cable operator pays to CBS per subscriber, which had been a sticking point.
