Lifetime renewal, LMN pickup key in making deal

Time Warner Cable will be able to continue carrying the Hearst-Argyle TV stations in its markets thanks to a deal that includes renewals of Lifetime and pickups of Lifetime Movie Network (LMN).

Lifetime became involved in the deal because Hearst-Argyle parent company Hearst Broadcasting is half-owner of Lifetime with Disney/ABC.
