CBS, Time Warner Reach Content Agreement


CBS and Time Warner Cable have ended their payment dispute and expect programming to resume by 6 p.m. ET on Monday.

The agreement ends a month-long blackout of CBS and CBS-owned channels that began August 2, and affected three million consumers in Dallas, Los Angeles and New York.

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 because the start of major sports games are slated for next weekend.
