NEW YORK - Cablevision and Fox parent News Corp. are expected to resume negotiations over programming fees today.

The stalemate between News Corp and Cablevision has lead to News Corp pulling FOX 5, My9 and a number of other channels. News Corp has reportedly also restricted Cablevision customer?s access to services like Hulu.com.

Cablevision says it was paying $70 million a year for the channels News Corp provides but the new asking price of $150 million is far too much.

Cablevision is the parent company of News 12.
