Franklin Telephone Company, along with NCTC, is currently involved in negotiations with AMC Networks, owner of networks such as AMC, WE tv and IFC, to renew our programming agreement which is set to expire on December 31, 2015. AMC has informed us that they could be significantly raising cost to show their channel, perhaps more than two times the current rate. We will continue to negotiate in good faith, but if an agreement is not reached it is possible that AMC could blackout on January 1, 2016.
Effective July 1, 2015 Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2 will no longer be a part of our commercial SNAP Package. This change is due to a change in the way Fox Sports Network calculates their hospitality rate for these channels. However, these channels will be offered on a la carte basis for customers who wish to retain this programming. Please contact your local Franklin Telephone for more information regarding individual pricing of these channels.
Franklin Telephone is pleased to get requests from time to time for SNAP! services in areas beyond our existing facilities. These requests are very helpful to us in determining our network expansion plans.
