Late last week, the FCC asked both Fox Networks and Cablevision Systems to document their retransmission-consent agreement dealings that has resulted in the current impasse between the two companies. Yesterday, Cablevision responded to the FCC’s request saying it was documenting bad faith negotiations by Fox Network’s parent company News Corp. According to Cablevision’s EVP/Communications, Charles Schueler

“The FCC filing clearly demonstrates that News Corp. has acted in bad faith and outlines the FCC’s authority to order binding arbitration and immediately end the Fox blackout of Cablevision customers. News Corp. never engaged in real negotiations, they only made a ‘take it or leave it’ proposal for Fox 5, and they timed the Fox blackout to leverage major national sporting events to force Cablevision to accept unreasonable demands.”

In response to Cablevision’s testimony to the FCC, Fox Networks said:

“From the genesis of our talks with Cablevision, Fox has negotiated in good faith.We have never made any “take it or leave it” demands, nor are we asking for $150 million in fees.
“For Cablevision to still be making those claims is yet another example of their ploy to secure an advantage through government intervention.
“Fox once again calls on Cablevision to stop punishing their subscribers in service of a cynical political strategy and resume constructive negotiations.”

The dispute between Fox Networks and Cablevision has also prompted one politician to reassert her concerns about the pending Comcast-NBC merger. Yesterday, Congresswoman Maxine Waters sent a letter to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski and her letter in part reads:

“As a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary, I write to express my ongoing concern for the potential impact the Comcast-NBC merger could have on our already heavily-consolidated media industry. Moreover, in light of Cablevision’s current dispute with News Corporation (News Corp.) over the fees it pays the media conglomerate to carry Fox programming, I have grown increasingly concerned with the potential harm that could result if such a dispute ever arose between a competing cable company and a combined Comcast-NBC. Absent substantive diversity and other public interest conditions, the Comcast-NBC merger could prove harmful to competition among traditional cable and broadcast companies, as well as the American public’s ability to access independent and alternative sources of news and entertainment. I therefore urge the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Department of Justice (DOJ) to conduct an extensive review, ensuring that if the merger is approved, it contains substantive and enforceable conditions that foster greater diversity, localism, and competition.”

ABC gave full season orders to two frosh series Better With You and No Ordinary Family and also added more episodes to new series Detroit 1-8-7 and established drama series Brothers & Sisters.

Before AMC premieres its newest original drama series, The Walking Dead on Halloween night at 10p in the US, the network and Fox International Channels (FIC) are teaming on a zombie invasion stunt happening in major cities worldwide all this week. Beginning at dawn today in Taipei and Hong Kong and moving around the world to culminate at the show’s Los Angeles premiere, morning commuters in each invasion city might see or run into hundreds of zombies over a 24-hour period. Zombies will congregate at iconic landmarks in each city such as the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, the Lincoln Monument in Washington, D.C. to Big Ben in London and the Acropolis in Athens. The 26 global zombie outbreaks will also occur in Istanbul, Madrid, Munich, Rome, Sao Paolo, Buenos Aires as well as Boston, Chicago and San Francisco in the US among other cities. Just hours after the series’ US premiere on AMC this Sunday, the debut episode of The Walking Dead will launch in 120 countries to 250 million households worldwide. Executive producers include Gale Anne Hurd, Chairman of Valhalla Motion Pictures, David Alpert of Circle of Confusion and Charles “Chic” Eglee. FIC owns all international rights to the series outside of North America and recently tapped Entertainment One as a third party company to be involved with broadcast, digital and home video sales of the series. The Walking Dead is based on the comic book series by Robert Kirkman published by Image Comics.
