The article reports on the decision of Fox Broadcasting Co. to eliminate Fox Net, the company's cable-delivered program service, in the U.S. The idea was brought by the decline of Fox Net's viewers and the growth of the company's subscribers with coverage on television networks. Fox Net suggests that subscribing to Turner Media Group (TMG) company can help their viewers to achieve signals through satellite. However, getting its local stations from TMG offers additional cost to Fox.
