DEAL OF THE CENTURY: CABLE SYSTEMS WILL CARRY FOX CABLE NETS
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).
