NYE Blackout Concerns Arise For TEGNA, FOX Viewers and MVPDs


WASHINGTON, D.C. — Happy New Year! One of your local TV stations could be blocked from cable TV subscribers if you’re in markets where Suddenlink and members of the National Cable Television Cooperative operate.

With the clock ticking down on 2019, tensions are high at the MVPDs as retransmission consent agreements could block Suddenlink viewers from accessing any TEGNA-owned station. For the NCTC TV service providers, it is FOX Corporation networks and O&Os that could get the axe.
