Fox and Time Warner Cable have settled their differences, and come to an agreement regarding Fox content over Time Warner’s cable network.

“We’re pleased that, after months of negotiations, we were able to reach a fair agreement with Time Warner Cable — one that recognizes the value of our programming,” said Chase Carey, deputy chairman, president and chief operating officer of the News Corporation, parent company of Fox, in a joint statement with Time Warner Cable.

Hmm. Not to speculate, but that sounds like Fox is going to get more money from Time Warner, and, by extension, consumers.

No word yet on the ongoing Cablevision/Scripps dispute that leaves Cablevision subscribers without Food Network access.
