FIX-Cablevision Carriage Dispute
It's over. Cablevision subs who had been blacked
out of programming will now be able to see Game 3
of the 2010 World Series

UPDATE #2: Cablevision releases a statement on the agreement

UPDATE: FOX releases statement on the agreement

THIS IS BREAKING NEWS…

The nasty battle of carriage rights that have had FOX television stations blacked out for 3 million Cablevision viewers, is over.

FOX released the following statement:

Fox Networks and Cablevision announced today that they have reached an agreement in principle for a new distribution agreement to provide more than 3 million households with programming from WNYW FOX5 and WWOR My9 in New York , WTXF FOX29 in Philadelphia , and the cable channels FOX Deportes, FOX Business Network, and Nat Geo WILD. The signals for all stations and cable channels were restored Saturday prior to the first pitch of World Series Game 3 on FOX.

Cablevision issued the following:

Cablevision Systems Corp. (NYSE: CVC) today reached agreement with News Corp. to return Fox programming to Cablevision. The channels will return to Cablevision immediately and in time for tonight’s World Series game and tomorrow’s NFL match-up between the New York Jets and Green Bay Packers.

The company released the following statement:

“In the absence of any meaningful action from the FCC, Cablevision has agreed to pay Fox an unfair price for multiple channels of its programming including many in which our customers have little or no interest. Cablevision conceded because it does not think its customers should any longer be denied the Fox programs they wish to see.

Cablevision thanks its customers for understanding the reasons for the dispute and for staying with us. We are also grateful to the 175 government leaders who raised their voices to urge government intervention and binding arbitration to prevent this blackout. It is clear the retransmission consent system is badly broken and needs to be fixed.

In the end, our customers will pay more than they should for Fox programming, but less than they would have if we had accepted the unprecedented rates News Corp. was demanding when they pulled their channels off Cablevision."

The channels returning to Cablevision are Fox 5 (WNYW), Fox 29 (WTXF), My9, Fox Business Network, National Geographic Wild and Fox Deportes.

6:57pm ET Start for Game 3 of 2010 World Series Earliest Since 1987 PDF Print E-mail

Written by Maury Brown   
Saturday, 30 October 2010 17:12

2010 World Series on FOXThe 6:57 ET/3:57 PT start time for Game Three will be the earliest start to a World Series game since Game Six of the 1987 World Series and is one hour earlier than the scheduled start time of the 2009 World Series game on Saturday.

“I am extremely pleased we are able to provide our fans the earliest World Series start time since 1987 with Saturday’s Game Three,’” said Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig when the earlier times were announced in late Sept. “The changes we made with FOX last year to start the World Series games earlier helped increase viewership including more young fans and we are optimistic that the earlier start time for Saturday’s Game Three will keep us moving in the same direction.”

Key to the earlier scheduled start time for Game Three is an additional level of advertising support from Chevrolet.

“Starting the game earlier will allow more families to watch together,” said Chris Perry, vice president U.S. marketing, Chevrolet. “This fits perfectly with our commitment to baseball which stretches from youth teams across the country to MLB.”

“We’ve said over the years that if advertisers were willing to support earlier starts at prime time levels, we’d be able to begin games earlier,” said FOX Sports president Eric Shanks. “We’re excited to be working with MLB and Chevrolet, along with our FOX-owned stations and affiliates to make this happen.”

Game 2 of 2010 World Series Sees Ratings Down 27% From 2009 PDF Print E-mail

2010 World Series on FOX

Overnight television ratings for Game 2 of the 2010 World Series – a 9-0 beat-down by the San Francisco Giants on the Texas Rangers – drew a 9.9 overnight Nielsen rating, a decline of 27 percent compared to last year’s Fall Classic between the Phillies and Yankees. The decline is attributed almost exclusively to the absence of the Yankees not representing the American League this year.

But, as was the case with the ratings for Game 1, the numbers being down isn’t all bad news. Compared to Game 2 in 2008 – a match-up between the Phillies-Rays – drew a 9.2 rating.

A larger question going forward is, will the domination of the Giants make fans tune out if the Series continues as a runaway? Today’s Game 3 has a 6:57 p.m. ET first-pitch with  FOX hosting the pre-game at 6:30 p.m. (see a complete listing of 2010 World Series start times).

As to whether the obnoxious carriage dispute between FOX and Cablevision has impacted the ratings, most analysts are saying that it is minimal.

TV Ratings for Game 1 of 2010 World Series Strong, But Down from '09 PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 27

Written by Maury Brown   
Thursday, 28 October 2010 21:30

With the New York Yankees losing to the Texas Rangers this postseason, the expectation was that television ratings would be down for this year’s World Series. Last night’s Game 1 between the Rangers and Giants pulled a 10.4 overnight rating, down from 13.8 overnight number for Game 1 in 2009 between the Phillies and Yankees.

But, the number is not considered to be bad. The number is up ever so slightly from the 2008 Game 1 of the World Series between the Phillies and Rays who pulled a 10.3. The Rockies-Red Sox Game 1 in 2007 garnered an 11.8.

According to the SportsBusiness Daily, “The game last night earned a 33.9 local rating in Dallas-Ft. Worth and a 35.9 rating in the S.F./Oakland/San Jose market. “

For FOX, the World Series has been a hit, even without the Yankees and Phillies. Fox Sports Media Group Vice Chairman Ed Goren said on Sirius XM Radio's "Mad Dog Unleashed" show on Wednesday that, "The advertisers have bought in. We have done very well in the ad market." Adding that FOX has sold every available spot for the World Series, and the price advertisers are paying is "high single digits above last year."

Customers Sue Cablevision for Actual, Punitive Damages PDF Print E-mail
Written by Joe Tetreault   
Wednesday, 27 October 2010 16:29

Cablevision continues to dominate the news cycle. The latest volley comes from the parties who are most affected by the service interruptions.  Bloomberg's Phil Milford is reporting that three customers have filed a class action suit seeking $450 million in actual damages for the service interruption.  In addition the plaintiffs are seeking punitive damages.

The suit is primarily a response to the failed negotiations that are leading to a likely blackout of World Series games to Cablevision subscribers. With under three hours until the scheduled beginning of coverage, the impasse seems unbridgeable.

Cablevision has sought intervention from the FCC to force the parties into mediation. But without swift action by the Commission, tonight's Game 1 will not be shown in New York and New Jersey on Cablevision.

FIX-Cablevision Carriage Dispute

UPDATE: Fox Calls Cablevision's Offer a "Publicity Stunt"

Rather than making real progress, Fox and Cablevision have taken their negotiations public, with Fox sending out a terse statement turning down Cablevision's offer of earlier today. Saying Cablevision seeks the package discount without choosing the package, Fox tabled any suggestion of taking Cablevision's latest proposal.

Fox' full statement is here.

THIS IS BREAKING NEWS...

Variety's Cynthia Littleton is reporting that Cablevision has made the first public move in the tense negotiations to get Fox stations back on the air in New York and Philadelphia. Cablevision is willing to enter into a one-year agreement with News Corp to retransmit the three stations presently blacked out to Cablevision subscribers at the same rates Time Warner Cable presently pays.

According to Littleton, Time Warner enjoys what she calls "a favored-nations clause to ensure that Time Warner Cable does not pay a higher rate for the stations than any other subscription TV provider." Fox has yet to issue official word on Cablevision's proposal.  The two sides had sought a three year contract prior to the most recent breakdown in negotiations.

The stations have been blacked out since October 15th when the retransmission contract between News Corp and Cablevision expired.  This is the third such blackout for Cablevision in the past calendar year.

We'll continue to update coverage of this story as tonight's World Series opener approaches.  Maury Brown will be reporting live from San Francisco for Game 1 and will have the latest developments from on-site.

2010 World Series on FOXWith Game 1 of the 2010World Series between the Texas Rangers and the San Francisco Giants set to kick off, the 2010 Fall Classic finally gets underway. This year, there have been tweaks to the start times, something brokered between MLB and FOX.

Tonight's Game 1 pre-game starts at 7:30 pm ET (4:30pm PT) with first-pitch at 7:57pm ET.

Game Three scheduled to start at 6:57 p.m. ET/3:57 PT on Saturday, October 30. The remaining World Series games are scheduled for first pitch to take place at 7:57 p.m. ET with the exception of Game Four, which will take place following the conclusion of the NFL on FOX, as in years past.

The 6:57 ET/3:57 PT start time for Game Three will be the earliest start to a World Series game since Game Six of the 1987 World Series and is one hour earlier than the scheduled start time of the 2009 World Series game on Saturday.

“I am extremely pleased we are able to provide our fans the earliest World Series start time since 1987 with Saturday’s Game Three,’” said Baseball Commissioner Allan H.
