CBS, Time Warner Trying To Settle Fee Dispute

Time Warner Cable and CBS say they are trying to settle a fee dispute that has left three million customers without the network’s programs.

Time Warner dropped CBS Friday in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and several other cities. Each side is accusing the other of being unreasonable in a dispute over fees that Time Warner pays CBS to air programs.

A Time Warner spokeswoman say negotiations are ongoing. CBS says it expects talks to resume soon.

Neither side would say Saturday if there was a chance the standoff could end quickly.

Both sides blamed the other for the standoff.

Time Warner on the “Conversations” page on its website said “CBS has made outrageous demands for the right to continue delivering their programming to our customers.” CBS, meanwhile, on its station websites states that TWC chose to remove CBS from their channel lineups. “We offered an extension that they chose to not accept.” The contend that TWC “charges you many, many times over what they pay for broadcast programming.”

Without a deal, Time Warner customers won’t see CBS programs such as “Under the Dome.” They’ll also miss Tiger Woods trying for his 8th win at Firestone Country Club near Akron, Ohio. CBS is the nation’s most-watched network.

Time Warner is available in a number of New Jersey communities including Keyport, Lakewood, Morristown, Neptune, Perth Amboy, Piscataway, Toms River and Woodbridge.
