fox tv 385 Cablevision And Fox Throwing Punches

Charges and countercharges are flying in the dispute between Cablevision and News Corp, the parent company of the Fox Television Networks.

Cablevision on Monday said it has has given U.S. regulators what it called clear evidence that News Corp negotiated in bad faith, leaving more than three-million homes blacked out from seeing some of their favorite Fox shows and sports. But, in an eight-page letter to the Federal Communications Commission, Fox Networks says it has negotiated with Cablevision in good faith for more than a year, and provided the FCC with dates and names of executives present at numerous meetings. Meanwhile, Fox stations have been off the cable systems of the New York company for ten days and the two companies haven’t been in negotiating talks since last Thursday. At issue are increased programming fees and new fees from program producers.
