Time Warner Cable drops CBS in NY, LA, Dallas

Decision does not impact San Diego CBS affiliate

LOS ANGELES - Three million Time Warner Cable customers in New York, Los Angeles and Dallas are losing the CBS channel, as the cable provider says it is dropping the network in a dispute over fees.

The nation's second largest cable operator says that CBS refused to have productive discussions despite a monthlong extension of talks since a previous deal expired at the end of June.

CBS says it regrets Time Warner Cable's decision, which it calls "ill-advised."

The decision does not impact the San Diego CBS affiliate, but 10News learned Showtime -- a CBS property -- is off the air for local Time Warner Cable subscribers.
