Table: The Adelphia Effect
The list of creditors is growing, and there may be more surprises as probes continue
Companies that provide shows to Adelphia--from CNN and Fox Sports to MTV--will be stiffed on bills for their programming. ESPN-owner Disney is expected to take a $50 million hit.
Technology vendors may not get paid for services and gear. Set-top-box maker Scientific Atlanta, for instance, is owed $83.8 million.
In the wake of Adelphia's woes, cable stocks have tumbled, with highly leveraged companies such as Charter Communications and Cablevision down by roughly 70%.
