The programmer, which revealed the new deadline at its web site, KeepMyNets.com, did not offer a reason for the one-day extension. Charter also did not issue a statement on the negotiations.

    Fox has no rights to ask any cable provider, as long as it receives advertising monies , for more . The creedy get creddier.
