Fox nets seek room

World Brief

BRAZIL — Fox is trying to sell to Brazilian operators local versions of nets Speed Channel and Fox Life, but the cablers’ lack of lineup space is hampering negotiations.

The Portuguese-language version of Speed is ready to go; Fox Life in Portuguese will be available in January.

The local cablers’ lineup of analog packages are full and, in order to include a new net, it is necessary to eliminate one, which’s not always possible.

Analysts believe that the distribution of Speed and Fox Life will be limited to Sky Brasil, which, as a sat operator, has more room, and is a News Corp. company.
