We wanted to let you know contract negotiations are underway with the Fox Broadcasting Company to continue TDS’ broadcast of its network of channels. These include: Fox News, Fox Sports 1, FX, National Geographic, the Big 10 Network, and others. TDS’ existing contract with Fox expires on Dec. 31, 2016.
We’re also negotiating with WJXT in Camden County, Georgia. Our contract to carry that channel likewise ends on December 31.
Right now, TDS is negotiating to keep network fees as low as possible so your TV bill remains affordable. Increases in programming costs are an industry-wide problem and we try to do everything we can to keep them down while also retaining your favorite channels.
Negotiations are expected to continue well into the holiday season. If an agreement can’t be reached by Jan. 1, Fox may force TDS to take down channels while we continue to negotiate a fair and reasonable contract for our customers.
Thank you for being a TDS customer.
