CBS, Time Warner Reach Agreement, End Blackout

CBS went back on the air for Time Warner Cable viewers at 6 p.m. Monday, meaning NFL fans will not miss games next weekend. The two companies issued a joint press release today that stated:

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.)

The release was reported by Gizmodo. Breitbart Sports and other outlets reported last week that the stalemate was threatening viewers.
