CBS, Time Warner Cable Agreement Reached

Posted: Updated:

Time Warner Cable and CBS have reached a "content carriage agreement."

According to a CBS press release, programming is scheduled to resume by 6 p.m. ET Monday. The agreement includes carriage of Showtime Networks, CBS Sports Network and Smithsonian Channel.

A fee dispute one month ago resulted in the cable provider blacking out CBS and Showtime in New York, Los Angeles and other markets. Nearly 3 million subscribers were left without CBS channels.

AP story continues below:

Specific terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The agreement includes retransmission fees that the cable operator pays to CBS per subscriber, which had been a sticking point.

Added pressure was on the two companies to reach an agreement since the start of football season, plus the U.S Open tennis tournament, are slated for next weekend.
