it's funny this is the same exact thing Cablevision had going on with Scripps a few years back, when they pulled Foodtv and all other Scripps channels from the air. Now MSG is playing the same game with TWC. Aint that some ****.
MSG (ESPN, ABC etc, etc) have all done this when their contracts expire with cable providers--it's a little game they play with our money. And since customers can't pick and choose what channels they want to pay for--this little game will continue and we will continue to lose and pay more. I never watch ESPN, it could have gotten pulled from my cable system months ago and I'd still be unware that those channels are gone. Can I call my cable provider and stop paying for them? Nope.
Seriously James Dolan is looking for your help. Those people at Time Warner aren't cooperating with him. Like this hasn't happened before when either side decides the other is a bunch of *******s.
IMO neither of them give a rat's ass about any of us.
As far as where I live it's pretty much 1) Time Warner 2) buy the NHL package from Time Warner 3) get yourself a dish or 4) say **** it.
And by the way when the Sabres are playing they're getting more and more of the MSG broadcasts than ever before around here. I'm watching more and more games off of live stream. WTF!--I could just as easily change their protect your Rangers/Knicks games warnings to protect your Sabres/Knicks games.
