Time Warner Cable and CBS dispute ends, Finally reaches agreement

After weeks of negotiating, Time Warner Cable has finally cemented a deal with CBS Corporation. Although customers are happy to hear that they can finally watch NFL, the damage has already been done, with both companies pointing fingers at each other.

TWC previously accused CBS of refusing to engage in a productive discussion to keep prices down, while the latter indicted that the cable company negotiated in a "combative and non-productive spirit."

With today's announcement, CBS programming is expected to return to Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks customers within the next 24 hours. The agreement will also return blacked out channels including Showtime, TMC, Flix, Smithsonian, CBS Sports Network, and the CBS broadcast stations.

TMW says that the negotation was successful. "As in all of our negotiations, our main goal was to hold down costs and retain our ability to deliver a great video experience for our customers. We’re pleased that we successfully achieved both," it said.

TWC is also asking the Congress and the FCC to reassess the 1992 retransmission consent rules. According to the cable company, the rules are out of date and are the primary reason why cable bills are rising.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
