Frontier Communications' Seattle FiOS customers lose access to Cox offerings

Frontier Communications FiOS customers in the Seattle area have lost access to KIRO-TV programming as Frontier refuses to agree to Cox Media Group´s demands for large fee increases of more than 80 percent over the next three-year contract period, the company said.

Frontier customers no longer have access to CBS, Get TV, and Laff TV in their programming selection in the Seattle area.

Frontier will continue its efforts to reach an agreement so Cox will restore programming as quickly as possible.
