In reality the main problem here is MSG and the Dolans..They are requesting a 53% percentage hike in revenue...I hate time warner and I am in a apt building in manhattan too...But thats how this stupid game is being played at the moment.
Right now, some analysts at TWC are crunching numbers to figure out what's going to cost them more customers:
A) Raising prices to offset the higher cost of MSG
B) Not offering MSG at all
In the end they're going to re-up their relationship with MSG. But by holding out as long as possible, they're going to get a better deal from MSG and minimize the effects of A.
Classic game theory at play between TWC/customers and TWC/MSG.
