"We have been attempting to negotiate a new agreement with Time Warner Cable for close to two years, and are simply asking them to pay fair and reasonable rates that are consistent with what other providers pay for our programming – nothing more," said Michael Bair, president, MSG Media. "Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable is not interested in reaching a fair agreement, and, in fact, is not interested in conducting productive negotiations on behalf of its customers. Because of that, we suggest that our customers switch providers before Time Warner Cable pulls MSG's networks off its systems."
The agreement between MSG Networks and Time Warner Cable concludes at midnight on December 31, 2011. Should the companies fail to reach an agreement prior to expiration, it is expected that Time Warner Cable will drop MSG's Networks from its lineup.
...Verizon customers finally get their Rangers in HD and now this. Unreal.
...i haven't followed this isse at all but you have to assume it's the Dolans' fault.
...Time Warner customers better hope things work out better than when there was an issue with the YES Network back in 2002 and Yankees fans were robbed of watching their Bronx Bombers.
Soooo I live in Manhattan and I am at risk of not seeing my home team play! Total Bullshit. The Dolans suck!
Welcome to my world! We had an espn channel for NHL coverage, but not this year, have to rely on NHL vault for next day highlights and no on the fly :(
@thenyrblog Been a while since I've lived in NY, but doesn't it seem like there's always a sports network in jeopardy of being pulled off?
@thenyrblog One of the few advantages of having Cablevision. I know I'll always have the Rangers\/Knicks in HD!
Glad I don'y have Time Warner. So sick of these stupid cable disputes. Bring on the Propaganda campaign by both sides.
@thenyrblog Timing couldn't be better from @FiOSTV's point of view.
