Time Warner and CBS have yet to negotiate their contract

Time Warner Cable and CBS have recently been in dispute, as they were unable

to resolve their disagreement over the pay increases CBS was demanding. Time

Warner refused to accept the channel’s higher fees in hopes of keeping down their

customers’ monthly bill, resulting in the loss of CBS affiliated channels for their

subscribers. Time Warner also offered a one-year extension of the contract, to which

CBS also refused.

The blackout has also carried over to the internet since Time Warner customers

cannot watch CBS programming online. However, CBS is still available to non-Time

Warner subscribers. In lieu of the channel, Time Warner has stated that it will be

showing Starz Kids and Family and will be crediting the bills of those who subscribe

to Showtime, TMC, and Flix pay channels.

The two companies are currently not in negotiations.
