    The contract dispute ended for now

     

    The agreement came just days after state Sen. Gayle Slossberg, D-Milford, began spearheading a petition to have the FCC intervene in the impasse between Altice and station owner Meredith Corp.

    “It’s time to end this; it’s incredibly unfair,” Slossberg told the New Haven Register. “What we have are two corporate giants arguing over pennies and the ones who get the squeezed are honest hard working people. For months now, people in Milford, Orange and Woodbridge have been paying a full rate for diminished cable service.”

    Klarn DePalma, VP and general manager of WFSB, said in a statement that station officials “are glad to have worked this out with Altice/Optimum so that their customers can now enjoy the NCAA tournament, the Masters and other marquee CBS and local programming.”

    “We have worked hard to restore WFSB to all of their customers in Connecticut,” DePalma said.
