Turner & Cable One Reach New Agreement


ATLANTA: Turner Broadcasting System has reached a deal with Cable One for the restored carriage of its channels.

The new agreement comes more than three weeks after Cable One deauthorized signals for TBS, TNT and Cartoon Network. The dispute over pricing came when Cable One claimed that Turner had demanded an increase of nearly 50 percent for the channels. Turner argued that it was asking for the established and accepted rates.

Cable One has now said that it is in the process of bringing back the channels, but that this could take several days to complete. Turner said in a statement: "We value the relationships with our viewers and thank them for their understanding. We’re grateful for their continued loyalty and support for Turner’s programming and brands."

Cable One provides service to 720,000 customers in 19 states across the U.S.
