Premier Resolves Dispute with FOX over Cable Networks

Premier has reached an agreement with FOX Corporation to continue to offer their cable networks, including FOX News, FOX Business, FS1 and FS2 to our customers.

Premier Communications has contracts with various TV “parent companies” (FOX etc) so we can provide Cable television programming to our customers. The contracts include information such as streaming rights, viewership stipulations and, most importantly, cost. Every few years these contracts expire and need to be renegotiated. Often times, these renegotiations include a cost increase over the life of the contract. Premier is part of a “bargaining agent” called the NCTC, a group that represents hundreds of other Cable TV providers across the country.

This year, Premier’s (via the NCTC) current contract with FOX Corporation was due to expire at 11:59PM on 12/31/19. This means that over the past several months, the NCTC has been attempting to come to a new agreement with FOX Corp. 

Premier is pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with FOX to continue to provide FOX News, FOX Business, FS1 and FS2 on our channel lineup. There will be no disruption in service.
