FOX Business Network (FBN) has teamed up with cable and satellite providers nationwide to make the upcoming Republican presidential debates available to more of their subscribers.
On Thursday, January 14th, DIRECTV, Suddenlink, Mediacom, Wide Open West, and Cox Communications, along with a significant number of National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC) member companies, will unbundle FBN, making the channel more widely available to their subscriber base ahead of the debates.
Presented by FBN, the debates are the first of the election year and will focus on economic, domestic and international policy issues. Beginning at 6PM/ET and 9PM/ET, Thursday’s debates will air live from the North Charleston Coliseum and Performing Arts Center in North Charleston, SC on FBN. The network’s inaugural debate, which took place last November and earned a record breaking 13.5 million viewers, was also unbundled for a significant number of NCTC member companies.
