Time Warner Cable and MSG Resolve Dispute

The 48-day standoff between the MSG Network and Time Warner Cable ended Friday, according to two people aware of the resolution who were not authorized to speak publicly.

The end of the impasse will be announced Friday afternoon by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and executives of both companies. A settlement had been urged by Eric T. Schneiderman, the state’s attorney general. The governor’s intervention in the past 24 hours with James L. Dolan, executive chairman of Madison Square Garden, and Glenn Britt, chief executive of Time Warner Cable, accelerated the agreement.

The blackout deprived many Knicks fans around the state of seeing much of the rapid rise to stardom of point guard Jeremy Lin — as well as the continued success of the New York Rangers.

The impasse began Jan. 1 with the companies disagreeing angrily over what Time Warner Cable would pay to continue carrying MSG. Time Warner Cable, which serves more than two million customers, insisted that MSG reneged on a proposal for a 6.5 percent increase late last year and then demanded a 54 percent hike. MSG has never discussed figures publicly but said Time Warner’s were not accurate.

Finally!! im so happy right now i cant explain. It obviously had to do with Lin. But whatever i only watch the rangers so as long as they are back i don't care how! I would think this has something to do with the Knicks and Rangers both Playing on sunday and it being a holiday weekend as well as Hockey Weekend in NY

Despite having not watched a minute of Knicks b-ball this year I suddenly feel inclined to go to Modells and buy a Linsanity t-shirt.

haha nice, you'll probably be saving about 25% on your TWC bill. I'm also sticking to DirecTV as I'll be saving at least 50% (and you just know Time Warner is going to jack up prices because of the MSG extortion)

Do we have any idea how much increase they agreed to? And when you say "jack up prices" you realize that we are probably talking about an extra $1 per subscriber* per month, right?

* assuming a 20% increase.

It's not just the money, it's the fact that fios internet is SUBSTANTIALLY faster then TWC's crappyass service.

All the people who switched to Fios/DirectTV should hope that TWC didn't give MSG the moon and the stars because sometime in the next year or so their contract will end too.
