Former NBC CEO Bob Wright says he felt "a little bit of deja vu" when News Corp. raised the possibility of turning its Fox network into a cable channel if streaming service Aereo continued to operate. Wright had explored the possibility of turning NBC into a cable channel in the 1990s, but found that it would have had too big an effect on affiliation agreements and other relationships. "We looked at that seriously. ... [But it] didn't prove to be as inexpensive as we thought," Wright said.
