Fox Nears Deal With Charter to Keep FX and Fox Regional Sports on the Dial

Phillip Dampier April 20, 2017 Charter Spectrum, Consumer News No Comments

Fox Networks Group is nearing a deal with Charter Communications that will keep several Fox-owned channels from disappearing from the Spectrum cable dial.

Recently, Fox has stopped running ads attacking Charter’s potential disruption of FX, National Geographic, and a number of Fox regional sports networks. Fox has also extended its deadline several times, and Fox programming continues uninterrupted on Charter’s cable systems as the talks continue.

Now FNG president and COO Randy Freer is ready to say publicly, “we’re working out the issues.”

Broadcasting & Cable reports one of those issues could be the ongoing lawsuit between Fox News Channel and Charter that was filed after acquiring Time Warner Cable. Charter began paying Time Warner Cable’s considerably lower FNC affiliate fee in markets where Charter’s original cable systems were under contract at a higher rate. One part of the agreement may be a settlement of that lawsuit.

There is no word on exactly when a final agreement will be reached, but it is increasingly unlikely the negotiations will result in any dropped channels for Charter customers.
