Suddenlink Subscribers May Lose Fox Tonight
Update: Suddenlink says it has come to an agreement with Fox, at least in principle. Here's a statement sent out last night by Suddenlink's director of corporate communications, Gene Regan:
Suddenlink has reached an agreement in principle with News Corp/Fox for the continued carriage of its TV stations and cable networks. The current agreement between the companies has been extended for another week while they work out the details of the new agreement. Specific terms of the new agreement were not disclosed.
Original story: If you subscribe to Suddenlink cable service, you may lose Fox 7 and other Fox cable networks at midnight. Suddenlink’s current agreement with Fox ended at the end of 2011 and the two companies haven’t yet reached a new agreement.
According to Suddenlink's website, the company serves half a million households in Texas including Georgetown, Hutto, Jarrell, Leander, Pflugerville and Round Rock.
The companies have until 11:59 p.m. today to reach an agreement in order to prevent service changes.
Fox News and Fox Business would not be affected by the outage.
