Just in time for the NFL Regular season kickoff, Time Warner Cable and CBS have settled the ongoing cable war that began August 2 and led to a network blackout of CBS and Showtime channels for TWC subscribers.
Here’s a statement on the development:
NEW YORK – CBS Corporation and Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks have reached an agreement for carriage of CBS owned stations on Time Warner Cable systems across the country, as well as Showtime Networks, CBS Sports Network and Smithsonian Channel, it was announced today by representatives for the companies. Programming on all networks will resume at 6:00 PM, ET today. Though specific terms of the deal are not being disclosed, the agreement includes retransmission consent, as well as Showtime Anytime and VOD, for CBS stations on Time Warner Cable systems in New York (WCBS and WLYW), Los Angeles (KCBS and KCAL) and Dallas (KTVT and KTXA.)
Interestingly, at one point the two sides had hammered out agreeable terms on fees issue that was holding up an agreement, but negotiations got hung up in CBS’ apparent refusal to make its digital assets free to TWC customers. TWC then proposed offering CBS on an “a la carte” basis to cable customers, an idea the network wasn’t ready to accept.
