Food Net, HGTV back to Cablevision

Scripps unveils new carriage agreement

Food Network and HGTV are back on Cablevision.

Scripps Networks Interactive, parent company of Food and HGTV cablers, unveiled a new carriage agreement Thursday, nearly three weeks after the channels were yanked from Cablevision systems. The sides exchanged harsh words after the channels were yanked on Jan. 1, with Cablevision saying it had “no expectation of carrying (Scripps) programming again” (Daily Variety, Jan. 4).

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Scripps had said it was getting a monthly fee of about 25 cents per sub for both channels under the previous contract. It was believed to have sought between 75 cents and $1 per sub for Food Network and less than 75 cents a sub for HGTV. Cablevision has about 3 million subscribers in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut area.

Food Network and HGTV have strong and loyal followings and we are pleased that both channels are back where they belong on Cablevision,” said John Bickham, Cablevision’s prexy of cable and communications.
