Last Updated Jul 16, 2009 4:16 PM EDT At least a half dozen Big Media players with deep pockets are expected to bid up to $1 billion for the Travel Channel at a time when niche cable networks are among the industry's most choice assets. Time Warner, Liberty Media, Scripps Networks Interactive, NBC Universal and Comcast could participate in a Travel Channel auction conducted by Goldman Sachs within a week now that Cox Communications has decided to sell the operation. Stand-alone cable networks owned by conglomerates or pure players such as Discovery Communications generally have been valued by analysts at about 12 times projected 2010 earnings. Some estimate the Travel Channel could command between $700 million and $800 million. In 2007, Cox acquired the Travel Channel and $1.25 billion in cash in exchange for its 25 percent stake in Discovery. At the time, the Travel Channel was valued at between $800 million and $1.1 billion. Privately-held Cox said it is using advisers to determine … [Read more...] about Bidding War Looming For the Travel Channel
The Federal Communications Commission voted 4-to-1 on Wednesday to eliminate the so-called "terrestrial loophole" in a 1992 federal cable law, which requires cable operators to give competitors access to cable-owned programming that is transmitted using satellite connections. Until now, the provision didn't apply when the cable operators send those programs over land-based networks instead.

"Consumers who want to switch video providers should not have to give up their favorite team in the process," FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said. That sentiment was echoed by cable's rivals. "The FCC gave sports fans a reason to tailgate today by adopting rules to bring sports programming to more video providers," AT&T Senior Vice President Bob Quinn … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo FCC closes Loophole in Cable Access Rules
Last Updated Jul 17, 2009 3:02 PM EDT TripAdvisor warns of hotels writing fake reviews -- TripAdvisor, the travel Web site that lets customers rate hotels online, posted disclaimers to warn its readers that hotels could be writing fake reviews to improve their rankings or hurt their competition. Bloggers and some industry experts say this shows that TripAdvisor's user-submitted content has lost credibility. But TripAdvisor disagrees, saying the disclaimers have been on the site since 2006. The Newton, Mass. company also said the fake reviews are minute compared to their 400,000 user-reviewed hotels and that it has a system to uncover unsound reviews. [Source: Associated Press] Cox puts Travel Channel for sale -- Cox Communications is putting up the Travel Channel for sale and both Scripps Networks Interactive Inc. and Time Warner Inc. are interested in the cable network.

The arrival of the NCAA tournament means only one thing (okay, maybe two): How can I find truTV? (Keith Srakocic/AP) The NCAA tournament tips off Tuesday night with two play-in games in Dayton, Ohio, and that means one very, very important thing: It’s time for the annual rite of spring known as “Where is truTV?” By now you are at least dimly aware of the Turner channel, which made the switch from crime all the time to laffs a few years ago.
