CBS and Time Warner Cable ended their protracted contract dispute Monday evening with the announcement of an agreement that restored CBS and its related channels, like Showtime, to millions of cable subscribers largely in three major cities: New York, Los Angeles and Dallas.
The two sides did not release details on the terms. They had battled for a month over an increase in fees that CBS was seeking for the right to retransmit CBS stations. Another issue was whether CBS would retain rights it wants to sell to Web-based distributors like Netflix.
