Just in time for today’s Patriots-Broncos football playoff game, Cablevision Systems Corp. early today announced that it has reached a retransmission consent agreement with Meredith Corp. for carriage of WFSB Channel 3 CBS Hartford in Fairfield, Litchfield and New Haven Counties.
“Our agreement ensures that all Cablevision customers in Connecticut will receive CBS programming and we are pleased that no Cablevision customer will pay twice for the same network,” a Cablevision statement said. “We sincerely thank our customers for their patience during this process.”
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Cablevision had removed WFSB on Jan. 3 in a dispute over whether Cablevision should pay WFSB to carry its local programs in Fairfield County when it already carries WCBS-Channel 2. CBS is broadcasting the Patriots-Broncos game at 3 p.m.
