Time Warner drops CBS, then halts decision

Time Warner Cable has quickly stopped plans to remove CBS from its lineup in three major markets after initially announcing it would drop the network following a fee dispute.

Not long after Time Warner released a statement late Monday saying customers would lose the network at 12 a.m. EDT, it said it halted its plans at the broadcaster’s request.

The cable company did not immediately provide further details.

About 3 million customers in New York, Los Angeles and Dallas could potentially be affected by the spat, which centers mainly on how much Time Warner Cable pays for the right to retransmit signals from the CBS-owned stations.
