ATVA Statement: Fox Slaps Consumers With Blackout, Puts 3 Million Households in the Dark

Only Congress and FCC Can Curb Broadcaster Arrogance

“After rejecting arbitration and issuing threats, FOX pulled its network station from the air early this morning. Over three million households in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Philadelphia are now left without access to baseball playoffs, NFL games, and local news and weather.  How much longer will consumers have to live in fear of blackouts by broadcasters?  What community is next?  The FCC and Congress must immediately step in to reform retransmission consent laws.”
