Cox, PBS Reach Agreement on DTV Carriage
Cox Communications, one of the nation's largest cable operators has agreed, in principle to carry all of PBS's digital signals, including HD and multicast.

The Association of Public Television Stations (APTS) negotiated on behalf of the PBS member stations and the agreement provides for carriage of stations' digital signals through the digital transition. The agreement covers 70 public television stations in Cox markets, which has 6.6 million customers. PBS stations also have national digital carriage agreements with Time Warner Cable and Insight, as well as local arrangements with Comcast.

"I am very pleased that we have reached this agreement with Cox and the millions of Americans they serve," said John Lawson, APTS president. "Agreements like this are a critical part of public television's commitment to universal service in the digital age."
