Top News Corp. Exec Says Affiliates Will Have to Pay Up for Fox Programming

Mar 9, 2010  •  Post A Comment

News Corp COO Chase Carey says Fox affiliates are going to have to pay up to continue having access to the likes of “American Idol” and the World Series, saying that Fox is “not just another channel,” reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Carey made his remarks at the Credit Suisse Global Media & Communications Convergence Conference. He said retransmission fees will “transform the business.”

Carey was just as passionate about the value of Fox News Channel, telling analysts that any cable operator that drops it would lose 20 percent of their subscribers.
