Comcast and Fox News have come to terms on a multiyear carriage pact that will also bring the regional sports channel YES Network back to Comcast customers in New Jersey after more than a year, Multichannel News reports.
“Fox News’ earlier Comcast deal expired on Dec. 31. The new pact ensured that there was no disruption of service for the cable company’s 22 million customers,” Multichannel News reports. “Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but reports estimated that Fox News would receive more than $1.50 per subscriber per month in the deal.”
The report adds: “The YES deal also includes carriage of about a dozen other Fox RSNs. Comcast dropped YES in November 2015, leaving about 900,000 customers in parts of New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania without the popular network.”
