Mediacom Communications today announced recent changes to its channel lineup that include moving Fox Business Network and Viceland to Family TV, the most widely-viewed subscription level; and adding the motorsports network, MAV-TV, and international news network, i24 News.
“We’re excited about the new channels and an expanded selection in our Family TV lineup,” said Ed Pardini, senior vice president of field operations for Mediacom. “Delivering new channels is part of our strategy to enhance our video product and deliver more value to customers.”
Fox Business and Viceland have been available to customers whose subscriptions included optional channel tiers. Now the channels are offered in Family TV and HD Family TV to reach nearly all Mediacom viewers. Fox Business Network features popular business analysts who anchor daily news programs. The network set new ratings records when it co-hosted its first Republican presidential primary debate in November 2015.
