CBS and Time Warner end their dispute
September 3 , 2013
CBS and Time Warner Cable have finally ended their dispute and are now expecting programes to return to many homes tonight.
The dispute which arose because of the failure to reach an agreement on the retransmission- consent fees had caused the blackout of CBS owned channel affecting millions of homes in the United States. The blackout included CBS Sports Network, the Smithsonian Channel as well as Showtime Networks.
The details of the deal are still undisclosed but Time Warner's CEO said they have ended in a much better place than they where when started. "While we certainly didn't get everything we wanted."
