I posted these articles over on another question, but the info is likely to get lost.
"News Corp. pursuing Fox retransmission fees"
Short version? He's looking for cable carriers to pay for carrying his networks. That would likely translate to higher subscription fees for you.
My take? It's probably the only way he CAN go, with ad revenues down. The question is whether cable subscribers will be willing to pay.

I have satellite. I will never have cable again. I can't imagine my satellite company dropping Fox. Plus, I have XM radio, and they air fox news and some of the commentaries as well.

I don't really care, but if enough people complain to their cable provider they might be able to convince them otherwise
