No WTIC Fox for Cablevision Customers

Tribune Co. has forced Cablevision Systems to drop its Hartford Fox affiliate, WTIC, as well as WGN America and AntennaTV from its lineup as the companies’ standoff over retransmission fees entered its second week.

“After causing the blackout of WPIX on Cablevision a week ago, the Tribune Company has now pulled the plug on Fox CT in Hartford, even after Cablevision agreed to pay all the fees they demanded for this station,” Cablevision said in a statement today.

WTIC 61 in Hartford is the exclusive source of Fox network programming for approximately 50,000 Cablevision customers, primarily in the Litchfield area. Most of Cablevision’s Connecticut customers continue to have access to Fox programming through the New York affiliate, WNYW, the cable company said.

On Aug. 17, Cablevision pulled four Tribune station feeds, complaining that Tribune was demanding tens of millions in new fees: WPIX (The CW) in New York; WCCT (CW) in Waterbury; KWGN (CW) in Denver; and Philadelphia’s WPHL (MyNetwork).
