CBS, Time Warner Reach Deal to Restore Networks

Finally viewers in Los Angeles, New York and Dallas will get to see how awful Under the Dome has become


A month-long standoff between Time Warner Cable and CBS that prevented millions of viewers from watching the top-rated network in the US ended when the two sides resolved their dispute.

The deal covers more than 3m homes in New York, Dallas and Los Angeles that had not been able to receive programming from CBS or CBS-owned channels since 2 August. Broadcasting resumed Monday evening on the east coast.

The companies had been fighting over how much TWC would pay for programming on CBS and other channels, including Showtime Networks, CBS Sports Network and the Smithsonian channel. Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.
