Time-Warner Cable Vs CBS

All Time-Warner Cable customers got this email yesterday:

CBS Corporation, the owner of several TV networks and broadcast TV stations, has made outrageous demands for the right to continue delivering their programming to our customers. As a result, several CBS-owned channels have been removed from your lineup while we continue to negotiate for fair and reasonable terms. We deeply regret being forced into this position by CBS, but we’re prepared to stand by our customers and do what it takes to fight these unreasonable demands.

The removed channels include CBS, Showtime, the Movie Channel, and Flix.
