Cablevison hits out as it reaches out to Tribune to resolve retrans row

Joseph O'Halloran | 28-08-2012

As the retrans row between the two companies seems further than ever away from resolution Cablevision has appealed to Tribune to restore its content to subscribers of the leading US cable operator.
On 21 August, Cablevision customers in the Hartford region found that they no longer had access to Tribune local news, traffic, weather, sports and entertainment programming provided by WTIC-TV. In addition, Tribunes networks, WGN America and AntennaTV, will no longer be available to Cablevision subscribers who will also not gain access to programming such as New Girl, Glee, The Simpsons, and live sports like NFL Football, NASCAR and Major League Baseball.

Even though it says that the bankrupt Tribune Company caused it to black out WPIX and a number of smaller Tribune-owned stations, carried in a small portion of Connecticut, and alleging possible illegality in the action, Cablevision is appealing to the states FOX affiliate to solve the dispute.
In a statement it said: After causing the blackout of WPIX on Cablevision a week ago, the Tribune Company has now pulled the plug on FOX CT in Hartford, even after Cablevision agreed to pay all the fees they demanded for this station. Tribune is illegally tying carriage of FOX CT to less-popular channels they also own, in an attempt to extract tens of millions in new fees from Cablevision customers. We call on Tribune to return FOX CT to our customers and work with us to reach a new agreement.
