Fox Extends Charter Deadline Until Thursday (Updated)

Fox yesterday pushed its deadline for a carriage agreement with Charter one day forward — again.

At its web site, KeepMyNets.com, the company shifted the warning to Charter viewers from Tuesday to Wednesday.  Fox did the same thing on Monday, changing the deadline from Monday to Tuesday.

Updated: Fox on Wednesday moved the deadline to Thursday.

Once again, Fox did not offer a reason for the one-day extension and Charter did not issue a statement on the negotiations.

“Attention Charter Spectrum Customers – Including Former Time Warmer Cable and Bright House Networks customers. You May Lose Your Favorite Shows and Sports Tomorrow, Wednesday April 11,” KeepMyNets.com now says.

If the two companies can’t reach a deal, channels that could be blacked out include FX, National Geographic, the Fox Sports channel, the Fox-owned regional sports channels, and Fox Deportes. (Pictured above: Legion on FX.)
