Sky Angel Files an Antitrust Lawsuit Against National Cable Satellite Corporation

National Cable Satellite Corporation is the target of an antitrust lawsuit filed by Sky Angel U.S., LLC. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, claims that C-SPAN violated the antitrust laws when it withdrew its programming from Sky Angel in 2009 after appearing on Sky Angel's line up for only a few days. C-SPAN covers the proceedings of the U.S. Congress and carries other public affairs programming. The non-profit National Cable Satellite Corporation is owned and operated by the U.S. cable industry. The FCC normally handles program access disputes between cable TV companies and programmers affiliated with other cable or satellite providers, but has declined to exert its authority over Sky Angel, the suit says. The lawsuit seeks damages against C-SPAN for violating the antitrust laws and an injunction that would require C-SPAN to honor the terms of its contract with Sky Angel for ten years. The case name is Sky Angel U.S., LLC v. National Cable Satellite Corp., No. 1:12-cv-01834 (D.D.C., filed November 13, 2012).
