Time Warner Cable has sought to downplay a report that its chief executive, Glenn Britt, was planning to leave the nation's second-largest cable company at the end of the year. The Wall Street Journal, citing an anonymous source, said Friday that Britt had decided to depart his position of 12 years, a tenure marked by large expansion in residential cable service, technological upgrades to broadband Internet and the 2009 separation from parent company Time Warner Inc. The 63-year-old Britt's contract was extended last year and is set to expire at the end of 2013. However, Time Warner Cable said Friday that no decision has been made about a possible departure.

Spanish-language media giant Univision Communications and Time Warner Cable have signed a new, multiyear distribution deal that includes carriage of several of Univision's new networks including the highly anticipated El Rey Network. The companies unveiled the agreement Wednesday afternoon. Financial terms were not disclosed, but the pact came well in advance of the expiration of the companies' current arrangement and was not contentious. The arrangement provides continued distribution for the main Univision broadcast network, its secondary network UniMás and cable entertainment channel Galavisión, plus a slate of new networks: Univision Deportes, telenovela network Univision tlNovelas, and FOROtv, a feed of the Mexico City-based news network owned by Grupo Televisa, which holds a minority stake in Univision.

Time Warner Cable subscribers in Los Angeles watching the Super Bowl in standard definition lost a big chunk of the game and halftime show due to technical issues. The analog signal of Fox's KTTV-TV Channel 11 Los Angeles went dark toward the end of the second quarter and was not repaired until about midway through the third quarter. However, the feed of Time Warner Cable's high-definition channel carrying Fox's coverage of the game was not interrupted. The majority of the region's subscribers have digital boxes and thus were not affected by the blackout.
