CBS won large increases in the fees it will receive from Time Warner Cable in an agreement that ended a month-long blackout of CBS, Showtime and other channels in key cities. CBS was asking for as much as $2 a month per viewer in "retransmission fees" to allow Time Warner to carry the CBS network and other channels for each of its 3.2 million cable subscribers in the affected areas.
