Fox Sports Saturday possible black KPN due to contract dispute




If Fox Media and KPN can not come out of the negotiations with regard to placement and price of the Fox Sports channels, then we lose from Saturday the right to broadcast the channels.

Fox Media informs about the potential loss of the broadcasting rights. The two sides are still negotiating the Fox Media sports channels, which currently just sit in a separate, additional package. On August 1, went the existing contract between the two parties. Fox Media sees the new contract like that Fox Sports 1 from entering the package. KPN sees nothing in there because the company believes that the additional costs two euros per TV subscriber would have to be passed on to the customer.

KPN strained recently even a lawsuit against Fox Media because of the demand. The telecommunications company argued that it would be unfair that Fox Media that requirement proposed by us, but not at competitor Ziggo. The judge was not there in it because Ziggo simply for longer has a contract with Fox Media. The court also ruled that KPN has not made clear enough or it is unfair contractual differences between KPN and Ziggo.
