Scripps Networks Interactive’s Food Network and HGTV are back on Cablevision’s 3 million New York-area homes, ending a three-week blackout while the two sides battled over how much the channels were worth, The New York Times reports.
No terms were released. According to reports, Scripps had been demanding about 25 cents per month per subscriber for the Food Network, nearly three times more than its typical distributor deal. The figures for HGTV were less.
Cablevision rival Verizon FiOS said it added new customers because of the standoff.
