July 25 Time Warner Cable Inc, which is
battling with the CBS broadcast network over the fees it
pays to carry certain CBS channels, said the companies will
continue negotiating until Monday.
"Both parties have agreed to an extension through Monday,
July 29 at 5 p.m.," Time Warner Cable spokeswoman Maureen Huff
told Reuters late on Wednesday.
If both the companies had failed to reach a new deal by
Thursday, CBS would have gone dark in markets like Los Angeles
and New York, depriving viewers of summer shows such as "Under
the Dome" and "Big Brother."
CBS officials could not immediately be reached for comment
by Reuters outside of regular U.S. business hours.
