The KMBC-Time Warner battle is over

After being blacked out for over a week, KMBC Channel 9 news and the ABC programs have returned to Time Warner Cable's feed.

Official statement from Time Warner Cable, thus bringing an end to one of the dumbest negotiations ever.

And yes, I realize using the word "dumbest" is editorializing things a bit.

We have reached a long-term agreement with Hearst Television and our customers can expect their signals to be restored to our cable systems shortly. We thank our customers for their patience and their willingness to stick with us through another unnecessary broadcaster blackout.
