Starz (STRZA) had been barred from holding sales talks for a year after being spun off by Liberty Media (LMCA), according to sources, but with the company set to mark one year as a standalone company next week there has been renewed gossip about whether it will seek a suitor this year, said the New York Post. The most obvious suitor for Starz is Cablevision (CVC) CEO James Dolan, who also controls AMC Networks (AMCX), but other potential partners that "continually crop up" include CBS (CBS), Viacom (VIA) and 21st Century Fox (FOXA), according to the report.

Netflix (NFLX) has filed a petition to the FCC against the proposed merger between Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC), as the streaming company has previously indicated it would, reported Engadget.

06:20 EDTCBSCBS seeking bigger share of pay-television revenue from affiliates, WSJ reports
CBS last week stripped an Indianapolis station of its affiliation due to a fee disagreement as it seeks a bigger share of pay-television revenue, reports the Wall Street Journal. The Indianapolis station's owner LIN Media (LIN) was set to be acquired by Media General (MEG) for $1.6B this year, but Media General cut its acquisition price Wednesday by 7%, or more than $100M, with the move from CBS cited as one of the reasons. According to Gabelli & Co., the lack of a CBS affiliation may cost the statio tens of millions of dollars in annual revenue to decline. Reference Link
