NEW YORK (AP) - TV network CBS and cable provider Time Warner Cable have ended their payment dispute and expect programming to resume in millions of homes Monday night.
The agreement ends a monthlong blackout of CBS and CBS-owned channels including Showtime Networks, CBS Sports Network and the Smithsonian channel that affected more than three million homes in Dallas, Los Angeles and New York and began Aug. 2.
The companies were in dispute about how much Time Warner Cable Inc. would pay for CBS Corp. programming. Specific terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The disagreement comes at a touchy time for networks and cable companies as more and more Americans are turning to alternative ways to watch TV including online or via Roku boxes or Apple TV.

OTOH, you now have Bob Schieffer potentially infecting your home again.
SeeBS agrees to pay Time Warner $1B to carry its trash on the cable network.
Wait a minute, I was missing some cable channels? Dang, is it too late to get angry? Honestly, my visiting adult kids complained once we didn’t get Dexter, other than that, I didn’t know they were gone.
One thing that Maryland did right was allow Verizon FIOS to install their Fiber cables and offer us competition to the crappy Comcast who had us hostage.
Its amazing what competition will produce.
