OLN and Cablevision

Can anyone please tell me why OLN is being blocked on my Cablevision here in NY??
I called Cablevision they said it's OLN that is blocking them from showing it.
OLN says it's cablevision that is the problem. whats going on?
If this isn't resolved soon i'll have to drop OLN which sucks anyway.

Any help understanding this would be great.

OLN signed a contract with the NHL that calls for games to be blacked out if the channel is on a sports tier and not on basic or extended basic channel lineup.

On Cablevision OLN is on a sports pak for $4.95 a month so they are blacking the games out.

Cablevision's position is they had a contract to air all OLN content before the contract with the NHL was signed.

Bottom line is we aill probably not see a settlement of this soon.
