In a resolution that's as timely as it was expected, CBS and Time Warner Cable have kissed and made up. You'll get your Under the Dome as scheduled tonight, but more importantly, you won't miss any of your sweet professional football action.
The dispute, which began a full month ago today, had impacted Time Warner Cable customers in the populous New York, Dallas, and Los Angeles markets, among others (what up Tampa). The spat had escalated to the point that people actually considered purchasing subsidized antennas, since you don't actually need a cable subscription to get CBS, which in some ways makes this whole thing even more ridiculous in retrospect. But while there were plenty of ways to get around the blackout, it's refreshing to finally see an armistice.
