LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Fox television network allowed its broadcast signal to be carried by Time Warner Cable for a brief extension past a midnight deadline as talks over fees continued.

Time Warner Cable Inc. made the announcement as the clock rolled past midnight Thursday on the East Coast.

Fox had threatened to pull the signal from 14 TV stations it owns, a move that would have affected more than 6 million customers of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks in markets such as
New York, Los Angeles and Orlando, Fla.

The dispute focuses on how much Fox is paid by cable companies to retransmit those stations' signals. Neither company said how long the extension would last.

Six Fox cable channels including FX, Speed and Fuel, were still being distributed as carriage arrangements on those did not expire until midnight Pacific time.
