KXAN back on Time Warner

As I discussed perviously, KXAN and LIN had to cut a deal with Time Warner before November 1st. Lo and behold, yesterday the deal got done.

Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed by either side, but I don’t expect that Time Warner gave up much. In a down economy, KXAN simply couldn’t afford the reduction in advertising rates that would come from being off of Time Warner during the November sweeps.

The Austin Business Journal claims that Time Warner lost customers to satellite. I don’t expect it was many, however.

Hey, KXAN! Next time, give more consideration to the time and place of your battles!
