Time Warner will allow subscribers affected by the CBS (CBS) blackout access to the Tennis Channel from Aug. 26 to Sept. 9 at no additional cost. Time Warner subscribers will be able to watch live matches of the U.S. Open tennis tournament and additional coverage of the event. This will give subscribers 240 hours of free tennis. Time Warner subscribers won’t be able to watch the men’s and women’s finals on the Tennis Channel, CBS has exclusive rights to those matches, reports Reuters.
This likely won’t stop many Time Warner customers, who have found unique ways to get around the CBS blackout.
CBS shares were up 3% as of Thursday morning, continuing a 37% year-to-date run.
