Oh Sandy—Cablevision 4Q Call Tackles Storm, Viacom & RSN Fees

Cablevision shares sank 9.5% Thurs after the MSO reported a $110mln financial impact on AOCF in 4Q from Superstorm Sandy (-44% to $350mln). “The storm had a significant negative impact on our customer metrics in 4Q,” CEO Jim Dolan said during CVC’s earnings call. Cablevision suspended normal collection efforts and non-pay disconnects because of the storm and estimated the number of accounts that it believes would have been disconnected. Here’s what that means in terms of customer losses from video, HSD and voice. Additionally, Dolan comments on escalating programming costs and the Viacom lawsuit filed this week.
