Time Warner and Fox rumble, could it cost viewers their cable?
Forget about healthcare! The really pressing matter for many people is news that Time Warner customers could lose “American Idol,” “the Simpsons,” and some major NFL playoffs if the cable company fails to resolves a stalemate over content licensing contracts with Fox’s parent company, News Corp., by Dec. 31. Time Warner says the fees are too high, but News Corp. says escalating costs are forcing them to raise the price—that, and owner Rupert Murdoch wants to begin charging an extra fee for News Corp.’s broadcast station, Fox. The fight’s getting nasty, with both sides paying up for television ads deriding the other. How will it end?
