By BroadCasting & Cable Staff -- Broadcasting & Cable, 8/20/2000 8:00:00 PM
Hearst-Argyle last week finally reached a retransmission agreement with Time Warner Cable after months of negotiations.
Those negotiations had been stalemated as Hearst sought increased license fees for Lifetime, the cable channel it co-owns with Disney, and carriage of Lifetime Movie Channel. Both were originally part of the contentious Disney/ABC retransmission negotiations with Time Warner, but were dropped from the final agreement reached in May.
Of the 26 Hearst-Argyle stations reaching about 17.5 million homes, Time Warner systems serve about 3.4 million of those homes.
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
