TW, Hearst, Argyle TV pact for carriage

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.

TW and Hearst-Argyle declined to go into detail about the agreement.

Sources say that as part of the new deal such Hearst-Argyle TV stations as WTAE, Pittsburgh, Pa.; WESH, Orlando, Fla.; KMBC, Kansas City, Mo.; and WXII, Greensboro/Winston-Salem, N.C., will remain available to TW Cable subscribers in their respective markets long-term. In exchange, these TW Cable systems will renew Lifetime and agree to take LMN on their digital platforms.

Hearst-Argyle says the agreement covers about 3.4 million households. out of the 17.5 million in the coverage area of the 26 TV stations owned by Hearst-Argyle.
