Newsday’s Richard J. Dolan writes about FBN’s upcoming launch and notes that Verizon FiOS will be carrying the network on channel 94…
DirecTV, owned by News Corp., will bring the business network to its 16.3 million subscribers. The network will be available to nearly all of the 13.4 million subscribers nationally on Time Warner Cable. In the New York area, the network will appear on Channel 43 on expanded basic, just above the level with only broadcast networks. Elsewhere it will be on the digital lineup.
Verizon’s FiOS TV, with 515,000 subscribers nationwide, will carry the network on Channel 94 on its premier lineup, which most customers have, spokeswoman Heather Wilner said.
Cablevision doesn’t have an agreement to carry the network and doesn’t comment on the status of discussions, if any, regarding new channels.
