Optimum/Suddenlink Customers Narrowly Avoid Football Blackouts Last Weekend

altice usa logoAltice USA, owner of Optimum and Suddenlink cable television services, narrowly avoided a blackout last weekend after one of their distribution deals with Fox Networks Group expired last week.

The blackout could have included FOX’s coverage of Thursday Night Football and Sunday’s scheduled games, college football, and other programming. Although, the expiring deal did not include Fox regional sports networks or Fox News Channel.

The new carriage agreement announced by the two companies includes Fox’s cable networks FS1, FS2, FX, and National Geographic Channel, as well as local affiliate WNYW-TV in New York.

“Altice USA is focused on providing the highest quality entertainment experience at a great value, and we are pleased to reach a deal with Fox that ensures our Optimum and Suddenlink customers will continue to receive their programming,” said Altice in a statement.

Altice USA is one of the largest cable TV operators in the US, with most of their customers residing in the tri-state New York City area as well as some midwestern and southern states.
