Time Warner Cable Drops CBS in New York, L.A., Dallas
CBS said Friday afternoon that it has failed to reach an agreement with Time Warner Cable by their 5 p.m. deadline and the cable company has dropped the No. 1 primetime network in New York City, Los Angeles, Dallas and several other markets.
The cable networks owned by CBS - Showtime, TMC, FLIX and Smithsonian - also have gone dark in these markets, where about 3 million customers subscribe to the nation’s second largest cable TV provider.
TWC said customers who currently pay Showtime or TMC will get a credit for those channels in an upcoming bill, going back to the first day of the blackout.
