CBS and Time Warner Cable are still negotiating in hopes of avoiding a service blackout, as the deadline is 5 p.m. today.

The two media companies are trying to come to an agreement over the cost of programming. 

Time Warner Cable claims CBS has demanded 600 percent more in fees than what the cable provider pays for other CBS stations.

CBS maintains it is getting a small share of what Time Warner Cable pays other networks for their programming.

A blackout would also affect Showtime, which is owned by CBS.

Time Warner Cable is the parent company of NY1.
