Comcast, MASN Reach Settlement In Carriage Dispute
Published December 28, 2009
Comcast and MASN have "reached a settlement" in their legal fight over carriage of the sports net, according to John Eggerton of MULTICHANNEL NEWS. The parties have "jointly asked, and been granted, dismissal of MASN's program carriage complaint," which was being considered by FCC Chief Administrative Law Judge Richard Sippel. That means certain unspecified Comcast markets will start carrying MASN as soon as the upcoming MLB season. MASN had alleged Comcast discriminated against it by refusing to carry the RSN in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the Tri-Cities region of southwestern Virginia, and Roanoke and Lynchburg, Virginia, as well as "in various cable systems in smaller communities where Comcast has cable systems within MASN's territory" (MULTICHANNEL.com, 12/23).
