Cablevision tells FCC that Fox acted ‘bad faith’
Question of the Day
BETHPAGE, N.Y. (AP) - Cablevision is telling the government that Fox has acted in “bad faith” in blacking out its programming to some 3 million cable subscribers, saying it is facing an ultimatum to pay more or miss out on carrying baseball’s World Series starting on Wednesday.
Fox signals from three of its TV stations have been blocked to Cablevision Systems Corp. customers since Oct. 16 in a fee dispute. Cablevision says Fox, a division of News Corp., is asking for more than $150 million a year for those channels and others, up from $70 million a year it had paid until their deal expired recently.
Fox did not comment immediately.
On Friday, the Federal Communications Commission asked both companies how they are meeting a government mandate to negotiate in “good faith.”
