Charter Spectrum and some Fox stations staved off a blackout of sporting events, including the Royals-A’s game on Thursday, for one more night.
About two hours before the 7:15 p.m. scheduled first pitch, Fox announced a 24-hour deadline extension in the dispute between the network and carrier. The same thing occurred on Wednesday.
If the dispute over carriage fees isn’t settled on Friday, the Royals-Angels game on Fox Sports Kansas City and other sporting events on regional Fox networks might not be shown on Spectrum, according to the website keepmynets.com.
A blackout of any Royals game on Spectrum would impact about 27 percent of the Royals’ footprint in the Midwest.
