/// DirecTV takes retrans fight with Fox to FCC

October 28, 2011  |  Media Week

DirecTV is taking its retransmission fight with Fox to the Federal Communications Commission. In a letter sent Thursday, DirecTV accuses Fox Broadcasting of resorting to “misleading advertising” that warns viewers they may “soon lose their local Fox TV station” when the contract that covers Fox's cable networks is up. If a new deal is not reached between the two companies by midnight Oct. 31, Fox cable networks such as FX, Fox News Channel, and 13 regional sports networks could go dark on the satellite TV service.
