CBS: No Talks To End Time Warner Cable DisputeCBS Stations, Showtime Remain Dark on MSO 8/04/2013 1:47 PM Eastern
With its stations and cable networks off Time Warner Cable since Friday, CBS says there have been no negotiations between the parties over the weekend.
"There are no negotiations taking place at this time between CBS and Time Warner Cable," CBS said in a statement. "Before the deadline on Friday we asked TWC to continue the negotiation while our programming was still on the air in consideration for our viewers. They rejected this request and told us that they'd have more leverage against us if they took us off their service. This is hardly a sign that they care about their customers as they claim. We remain ready to negotiate in good faith when they are."
Time Warner Cable didn't immediately respond for comment at presstime.
