AMC Networks, Time Warner Cable extend carriage talks

Current deal would expire at midnight

AMC Networks said Monday that it has temporarily extended a carriage deal with Time Warner Cable as the two sides negotiate a renewal of the contract that expires at midnight tonight.

An AMC rep wouldn’t specify the time earmarked to reach a new deal to keep AMC, IFC, WeTV and Sundance Channel on Time Warner systems but said it was reasonable, not day-to-day. Time Warner is the nation’s second largest cabler with more than 12 million subscribers.

Time Warner Cable chairman Glenn Britt has taken a hard line in carriage renewals. At a conference in early December, he warned programmers not to expect “a free lunch,” and he has already announced plans to drop arts network Ovation.
