The article reports on the status of the transmission-consent battle between cable and broadcasting firms Time Warner Cable Inc., News Corp.'s cable and Fox Broadcasting Co. in the U.S. The dispute looms because News Corp. has launched its own media blitz in response to Time Warner Cable's "Roll Over or Get Tough," affecting the Times' 13 million cable subscribers and Fox television (TV) stations. According to Fox, if a deal has not materialized, Times would miss major sports programming.
