Initial speculation had the deal as topping out at a monthly fee of about 60¢ per subscriber for the nine Fox O&Os carried by Time Warner systems in nine major markets, including Gotham and L.A. (Daily Variety, Jan. 4).

But informed sources say that the five-year deal calls for Time Warner to shell out more than 75¢ per sub a month by the end of the deal term. Fox started out seeking $1 per sub in a bold bid to help shore up the shaky economics of the broadcast network biz and gain parity with top-tier basic cable channels.
