re: Feedback SDN Group (Dec 20, 2014)

re: Feedback from readers: the SDN site will continue to be updated in 2015 on this website. Some readers indicated that they do not want to join Facebook in order to see the links.

SDN will continue to post links here on this site but about once a week since I have other paying jobs to do.

Dish Wants To Put Broadcast Shows On Separate Tier Of New Digital Service

Fox News finds new way to scare its viewers, warns of Dish blackout. Already adept at scaring its rapt audience, Fox News has begun warning Dish Network subscribers that the channel, along with Fox Business News, could disappear from their program guides "any day now."

Cablevision customers warned about 2015 rate increases. Cablevision has begun notifying customers in their December billing statements of planned 2015 rate increases. According to a J.P. Morgan Chase memo sent to investors, Cablevision subscribers will pay an extra dollar on top of the $4.98 they already pay in the form of a "sports surcharge."

Report: 'Sports mini-bundle' would still cost north of $50. Combining pay-TV's recent "mini-bundle" trend with SNL Kagan data suggesting that 43 percent of cable subscribers don't cut the cord because of their affinity for live sports, Businessweek did some rather interesting number crunching on what a trimmed down "sports only" pay-TV package might look like.

Media Wires

Inside Radio: ALERT: FCC Won’t Ban ‘Redskins’. In a setback for advocates pushing the Washington Redskins to change their name, the Federal Communications Commission today refused to order radio and television stations to stop using the team’s name. The agency said the word doesn’t fall under its definition of profanity – and it’s not equivalent to obscenity. The Media Bureau also gave Red Zebra Broadcasting’s WWXX, Buckland, VA (94.3) a new license. Activists had sought to punish the company, which like the Redskins is owned by Dan Snyder. He’s vowed to keep the team’s name intact.
