Published April 30, 1998
Fox/Liberty Networks and Century Communications Corp. have reached a national distribution agreement for Fox/Liberty Network channels, including Fox Sports Net and its RSNs, FX, Fox Sports World and Fox Sports Americas. The deal brings Fox/Liberty Networks to Century subscribers in more than 1.1 million homes in 14 states (Fox). The deal means Century subscribers in L.A. will "finally" get Fox Sports West 2, according to Scott Hettrick of the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. Century had "been one of the last two major holdouts along with Comcast" (HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, 4/30).
