News Corp.’s Fox Says It May Drop Stations in Dispute Over Fees

News Corp.’s Fox network said it may drop some affiliates if the local TV stations are unwilling to pay a program fee sought by the broadcaster.

Without an agreement on a new fee schedule, Fox “will have to pursue different distribution channels to receive fair value for our programming and continue to serve our viewers,” Michael C. Hopkins, president of affiliate sales and marketing, said in a Feb. 4 letter to station owners.
