Cablevision Update on News Corp.

Oct 18, 2010, 17:41 ET from Cablevision Systems Corp.

BETHPAGE, N.Y., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Charles Schueler, Cablevision's executive vice president of communications, said:

"When broadcasters like News Corp. remove their signals, they hurt viewers in an attempt to gain business leverage.  Cablevision agrees to submit to binding arbitration, as called for by more than 50 elected officials from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut as the fastest and fairest way to return Fox programming to Cablevision viewers.  We call on News Corp. to do the same."
