Thinking how contentious the Fox/Dish deal was in recent past (complete with status updates to the FCC), it looks like Fox/Dish are banding together to try and improve value to its customers. I think this was an issue brought up during negotation (especially with the O and O stations that wanted monthly fees for transmission).

Fox online shows will be available the next day for Dish subscribers, but delayed for everyone else. They likely will include other content distibutors as they make these deals.

That's interesting.

Hmmm. I couldn't read the whole WSJ article because it too is behind a paywall. Oh that's right, Rupert Murdoch owns it as well as Fox.:rolleyes:

I try to watch most of the news channels periodically to get all the information possible so I can make an informed decision on anything important.

Decipher that. :grin:

What they are really attempting to do is use the "TV Anywhere" model to make people all switch to Pay TV, and stem the tide of "Cord Cutting" (leaving Pay TV for OTA and internet, etc). That will make it easier to say that "virtually no one watches over-the-air", and thus justify taking away the TV Broadcast channels for Spectrum Auctions.
This will pay for about one-quarter of one-percent of the National Debt, buy some poorly made radios for Police and Firefighters to use on unreliable digital radio systems (the new law will be announced on the tenth anniversary of the 9-11 bombings), and make for some nice ("warm-n-fuzzy") Photo-Op's for some Congressmen.
It will also lead to sky-rocketing prices for cable and Satellite TV, new and higher taxes and fees on your bills, and probably tick-off a lot of AARP members who rely on free TV.
But, let's just "deal with it", so no one calls us "Anti-American".

In addition to paying for the privelege of providing a signal to all of the DMA of local affiliates who won't make the needed investment in their own broadcast capability, Dish is the first to step up and pay extra to let their subscribers view the content on-line without the week delay added for non-payers.

It's a way to keep pay-TV "necessary."
