Charter Adds Fox Business In Northeast, Midwest

Fox Business Network continues to grow, rolling out a number of systems owned by Charter Communications.

The digital debuts will give FBN a presence on Charter systems serving Boston and Springfield, Mass., Hartford, Lincoln, Neb., and Minneapolis and Duluty-Superior, Minn. The rollouts are expected to add 200,000 subs to the business news network’s count.

The Charter launch Wednesday comes on the heel of a recent pact with Cox Communications that will see the operator add FBN to systems in San Diego, Las Vegas and New Orleans, among other markets.

With the two deals, FBN, which launched on Oct. 15, 2007, will count more than 45 million subs.
