Adelphia Pullout Rocks TelVue


Adelphia Communications Corp. will no longer use TelVue Corp.’s telephone-based pay-per-view ordering service, the MSO informed the vendor earlier this week.

Adelphia’s business represents about 25% of TelVue’s total ordering revenues, the company said.

"While the loss of Adelphia's business will not have a material adverse long-term effect on TelVue's operations, it will certainly affect TelVue's ability to remain profitable for the near term," president Frank J. Carcione said in a prepared statement.

Adelphia said it will use alternative technology, and TelVue’s services will be discontinued on or around June 30.
