Turner Broadcasting Releases Statement on Cable One Dispute
Turner Broadcasting responded to its current dispute with Cable One:
Despite our best efforts, we were unable to reach an agreement with Cable One for our portfolio of leading networks, including TNT, TBS, CNN, Cartoon Network, HLN, truTV, and TCM. Turner has a long history and well-earned reputation as a fair and reasonable partner to our distributors and we have worked diligently with Cable One to come to a resolution, even offering an extension that expired at noon today.
We are simply asking that Cable One pay the established and accepted rates already in the marketplace for our portfolio and remain willing to discuss a new agreement that recognizes the strength and value of our networks and the popular programming they offer.
