FOXNEWS removed itself from SIRIUS over contract dispute this morning?

Thursday, October 27, 2005

UPDATED
Today The drudge report... Reported that Fox pulled it self from Sirius.. FOX NEWS on Sirius was just a loop of Previews earlier today... then around 1pm ET the FOX NEWS feed was back... According to some reports FOX NEWS (TV AUDIO FEED) removed themselves from Sirius earlier today over contract dispute... The FOX NEWS TV feed contract with Sirius is up on Dec 31 2006, according to some sources..

I have contacted Sirius PR about what happened today but no response as of yet..

As of right now it looks like FOX and Sirius are working things out.. But they are up for a new contact soon.. XM and FOX NEWS TALK (talk station not the TV feed ) made a deal last week to start on XM in the New Year, FOX did make it a point that the deal with XM is NOT exclusive .. We will keep an eye on it.

UPDATE..
R&R also has a story posted... But the story reads...
"Fox News and Sirius are involved in a "contract dispute" and that the satcaster is no longer
carrying the Fox News Channel as one of its subscription radio channels.

Asked for comment, a Fox News spokesperson confirmed Drudge's report but offered no other details."

FOX NEWS //133 on Sirius is currently broadcasting just fine.. so who knows..

UPDATE.. The Drudge Report Story is now gone... Humm??

Ideally they'll work whatever out and Sirius will add Fox News Talk as well. XM has been getting massive advertising lately on Foxnews purely because the talk channel is coming to XM in January and they're already plugging for it.

I can't imagine it'd cost THAT much not to do it.
