Cablevision V. Food Network

cablevisionfoodnetwork.jpgThe Feed got Food Network President Brooke Johnson on the phone yesterday to follow up on the contract issues with Cablevision that resulted in the network going black to the cable provider's customers in three states over the weekend. Johnson notes that while they are still seeking negotiations with Cablevision, the last time they spoke was on Sunday night, and that “All of our other carriage operators recognized the huge increase in popularity we’ve seen for the Food Network?every other contract that was up either reached a successful conclusion or is nearly concluded.” While the exec says she hopes they can reach a deal with Cablevision soon, if they can't, offering some programs via iTunes might be a possibility they would consider to allow fans to keep up with their favorite shows [The Feed]
