Proving not every retrans consent deal inked in the days leading up to Dec 31 is a heated, down-to-the-wire negotiation, Time Warner Cable and Tribune reached a new multi-year agreement early.
 
The deal, announced Sun evening, covers Tribune broadcast stations in NY, L.A., Dallas, San Diego and Indianapolis, as well as the broadcaster’s expanded station portfolio, which will soon include Local TV stations in Cleveland, Milwaukee, Kansas City and Greensboro. The agreement also cover’s TWC’s continued distribution of superstation WGN America.
 
Of course, not everyone’s holiday is so joyful. Buckeye has been without Sinclair’s WNWO in Northwest OH since Dec 16. And DISH has had 16 stations blacked out for going on 3 weeks in a dispute with Bonten Media group and Esteem Broadcasting.
