Fox network programs from their channel line ups on January Time Warner said in statement Jim Platt a spokesman for Fox parent News said There is an agree ment and we will have a statement short Fox

to the dispute Monday and Tuesday running newspaper ads saying that Time Warner was forcing it to pull the local stations olf Time Warner cable systems on Jan I because the cable operator wouldnt rene
