FX may be pulled from Spectrum over fees dispute

In a new feud over retransmission fees, the Fox Networks Group said it may pull some of its channels from Spectrum cable TV.

Fox Networks first announced last week that FX, National Geographic and several regional sports channels outside of New York would go dark. A website created by the network said stations would go dark April 11. The site previously stated that the stations would go dark on April 10.

"Fox is trying to gouge our customers using the increasingly common tactic of threats and removal of programming," Spectrum’s parent company Charter Communications said in a statement Tuesday morning. "They are attempting to extort Charter for hundreds of millions of dollars. We will continue to work towards a fair agreement."
