Rogers Communications Inc. and Shaw Communications Inc. will head back to court on Jan. 24 to defend their $14.6 billion deal against the antitrust watchdog who seeks to block it. 

Canada’s Federal Court of Appeal will conduct a one-day hearing in Ottawa that day, Justice David Stratas ruled Tuesday during a case-management conference. The companies are trying to close their transaction by Jan. 31, nearly two years after it was announced.
