In the latest twist in the retransmission consent saga, Time
Warner Cable claims that Fox "has brazenly sought to hijack the retransmission
consent process" by inserting itself into its affiliates' retrans negotiations,
in a Dec. 8 FCC filing in support of Mediacom Communication's retrans consent
complaint about Sinclair, B&C reports.
The filing comes as TWC, the nation's second-largest
cable operator, is in the throes of a negotiation with News Corp. over carriage
agreements for Fox-owned stations, cable networks and regional sports networks that
expire Dec. 31.
