Foothills Communications Statement on FOX Networks

Jarrod Hardin, Director of Customer Relations, has issued the following statement:

We are currently in negotiation with Fox Corporation to continue to offer their cable networks including FOX News Channel, FOX Business, FS1, FS2 to our customers. We are attempting to reach a fair agreement with FOX, but they are demanding that we agree to unreasonable terms and rate increases that will directly impact our customers’ monthly bills. If we are unable to reach an agreement before Tuesday December 31st at 11:59pm, FOX may force us to remove their cable networks from our lineup.

FOX is seeking an enormous rate increase that is more than 10X the rate of inflation. In fact, since 2004, they have increasing rates for Fox News Channel by almost 800%.  It is not fair that our customers continue to absorb these kinds rate increases while multi-billion-dollar companies make record profits.  We are fighting on our customers’ behalf to keep costs down.
