Football remained on the air as News Corp. and Time Warner Cable struck a retransmission deal Friday evening, several hours after a midnight deadline, The New York Times reports.

Terms weren’t disclosed. Fox had been demanding about $1 per subscriber per month, compared to the 30 cents the cable operator had been offering, according to the paper’s sources.

Meanwhile, B&C reports that Sen. John Kerry plans to investigate whether legislation is needed to prevent any kind of similar future stand-off.

  1. While he’s at it, Sen. Kerry should investigate Comcast’s outrageous financial demands for DirecTV to carry it’s Versus Sports Channel, which DirecTV has thus far refused to be extorted into paying, so DirecTV customers cannot watch anything on Versus!
