THE ULTIMATE BAN: CABLEVISION OF LONG ISLAND ACES FIGHTING
Published February 21, 1996
Cablevision Systems Corp. of Long Island decided not to offer Ultimate Fighting Championships this past Friday. The only other U.S. cable operator that reportedly does not offer the bouts is InterMedia of San Francisco. Peter Low, VP/Programming for Cablevision: "The government has called on media companies to act more responsibly to respond to violence on television programs. That's what we've done." Ultimate Fighting had put a full-page ad in Long Island's Newsday to urge viewers to call the office of CEO Jim Dolan to demand the show (Jeanne Cooper, NEWSDAY, 2/21).
