UPDATE: The Fox agreement has been successfully renewed. There will be no blackout of channels.
Attention all MIDTEL TV customers:
The following channels are part of an agreement with Fox that expires 12/31/2019.
Channel 271/871–Fox Soccer Plus
Channel 268/868—Fox Sports 2
Channel 269/869—Fox Sports 1
Channel 202/802—Fox Business Network
Channel 206/806—Fox News Channel
The negotiations for a new agreement have stalled due to demands for exorbitant rate increases and we are refusing to accept these demands and are waiting for more reasonable rates. If we do not get a reasonable agreement or extension beyond 12/31/2019, there is a possibility that Fox will “black out these channels until a new deal is done.
We will do everything we can to prevent this and will continue to update you!
