Network pacts with Cablevision for N.Y. carriage
Fox Business Network has pacted with Cablevision for carriage in the New York metropolitan area.Carriage deal allows Fox Business to compete with business cablers such as CNBC and Bloomberg in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The lack of carriage on Gotham’s dominated cabler had been a handicap for Fox Business. The Cablevision pact will make Fox Business available to 3 million subscribers. Launched in 2007, Fox Business in recent months has been beefing up its roster of personalities, hiring former “20/20″ correspondent John Stossel and cutting a simulcast deal with radio veteran Don Imus.
