VIACOM/TCI MAY BE CLOSE TO SETTLING LITIGATION
Published January 25, 1995
TCI and Viacom reached a "prelimary agreement to settle ongoing litigation" between the two companies. The possible settlement hinges on a "new affliation agreement that covers" TCI's long term carriage of two Viacom cable channels -- Showtime and The Movie Channel. Viacom had filed suit against TCI in September, claiming TCI "engaged in anti-competitive behavior" in trying to force the networks into a pay television service controlled by TCI. The specifics of the agreement were not announced (BLOOMBERG NEWS SERVICE/N.Y. POST, 1/25).
