Hearst, Time Warner reach agreement, KITV back on Oceanic

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Hearst Television and Time Warner Cable announced Thursday that they reached an agreement in the dispute that kept KITV off Oceanic Cable since July 10.

Oceanic Cable said on Facebook, " Great News! 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."

"We appreciate the support and patience of our viewers, advertisers and local communities served by our stations, and we regret the inconvenience they've experienced over the past 10 days," said Hearst Television President-CEO David Barrett. "This process has been an important step to insure the ongoing vitality of our local TV service in communities across the country."
