Time Warner Cable and Hearst Television have reached a settlement in their dispute over retransmission consent fees Thursday, restoring programming after a 10-day blackout.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The stalemate affected 13 stations in 11 markets including Kansas City, Pittsburgh and Boston.

“We appreciate the support and patience of our viewers, advertisers and local communities served by our stations, and we regret the inconvenience they’ve experienced over the past 10 days,” said Hearst president/CEO David Barrett. “This process has been an important step to insure the ongoing vitality of our local TV service in communities across the country.”

“We have reached a long-term agreement with Hearst Television and our customers can expect their signals to be restored to our cable systems shortly,” said TW Cable in a statement. “We thank our customers for their patience and their willingness to stick with us through another unnecessary broadcaster blackout.”
