Frontier, Sinclair still in negotiations for carriage renewal

Frontier Communications Corp. said it remains in negotiations with Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. to renew their carriage agreement that is scheduled to expire Dec. 31.

Steve Ward, Frontier's senior vice president of video, said in a Dec. 22 statement that the company is "working hard" to establish fair terms of renewal with Sinclair, but cannot agree with proposed terms that include rate increases of at least 80% and as much as 380%.

Ward added that Sinclair wants to include specific channels in the deal that do not appeal to the majority of Frontier's customers.

Sinclair provides content to about 3% of Frontier's subscribers, with those potentially affected being located in the Seattle and Portland, Ore., markets.

Sinclair has said that it does not expect the retransmission agreement to be renewed.
