'Simpsons' Channel Not Out of Question

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- An all-"Simpsons" channel may not be that far-fetched.

While Fox's parent company, News Corp. ( NWSA), did not go so far as to say a Simpsons TV station is in the works, Chief Operating Officer Chase Carey did say the series represents a unique opportunity that goes beyond syndication.

Speaking at Goldman Sachs' Communicopia Conference in New York, Carey said: "I wouldn't say we're drawing up plans to have a "Simpsons" channel, but, you know, there are a lot of 'Simpsons' fans out there."

Regardless, syndication deals would prevent News Corp. from moving forward with any opportunity for at least a year.

Carey first alluded to the potential for a "Simpsons" channel earlier in the week at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media conference.
