We’ve been getting flooded lately with questions from nervous Time Warner customers who feared an abrupt departure of FOX programming from their cable systems.
With the deal between the two companies expiring when the ball at Times Square displayed the number of the New Year, Time Warner’s 13 million customers hoping to watch FOX might have been SOL.
With the Eagles and the Cowboys getting together on Sunday for a nationally-televised game beginning at 4:15 p.m. ET, that could have been a major problem for NFL fans.
But John Ourand of SportsBusiness Journal has tweeted that a deal between FOX and Time Warner has been reached.
So FOX will remain on Time Warner. And on Comcast. Which is irrelevant to this post but for the fact that Comcast has purchased NBC.
