KPHO Phoenix and Cable One sign retrans deal


KPHO-TV CBS 5 Phoenix announced that a retransmission consent agreement has been reached with Cable One. The delay in negotiations between the two reportedly had some local viewers fearing that they would lose access to favorite shows.

"We are pleased that Cable One recognizes the value of KPHO’s local news and CBS programming," said KPHO VP/GM Ed Munson.  "We have come to an agreement that is acceptable both parties."

The new contract will last three years and allows Cable One subscribers in Prescott, Show Low, Snowflake, Safford, Winslow, Cottonwood, Globe, Miami, Page, Clifton, Morenci and Cornville, AZ to continue viewing the station.
