Time Warner Cable subscribers will no longer have the CBS network at their fingertips as both entities failed to come to a consensus by “their 5 p.m. deadline” Friday (August 2).

Cities effected are Dallas, Texas, New York, N.Y., and Los Angeles, Calif. amongst Chicago, Ill., and Boston, Mass losing the channels owned by CBS such as Showtime and TMC.

CBS released a statement expressing, “We deeply regret this ill-advised action, which is injurious not only to our many affected viewers, but also to Time Warner Cable itself.”

The Huffington Post reports, “Time Warner Cable has said it’s resisting a fee hike demand by CBS so prices don’t go up for customers. CBS said Time Warner Cable isn’t agreeing to terms that its competitors have accepted.”
