Fox Business Network (FBN) has signed an agreement with Cablevision that will put the programmer’s content across Cablevision's footprint in parts of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

FBN made its debut yesterday with Cablevision, which is the nation’s fifth-largest MSO.

The launch expanded FBN’s presence in the surrounding New York City metro area and throughout Long Island, as well as in Westchester, Fairfield and Bergen counties.

"We are pleased to make Fox Business Network available to our iO TV digital cable customers in both standard-definition and HD,” said John Trierweiler, Cablevision's senior vice president of product management.

News Corp.-owned FBN is a financial news channel that is headquartered in New York. FBN launched in October 2007 and is available in more than 50 million homes.
