as I have already posted in the All Viewings thread, but I think this may become a major issue for TWC subscribers. Jam those lines up.

EDIT: They were bugging me with this **** during the whole Knicks game.

Time Warner subscribers, please go to keepmsg.com or call 888-KEEPMSG.

I've already left them one rant of a voice message.

I love how they play the blame game when with 90% certainty I can say that it's MSG that is demanding more money.

Also, what a joke... after holding out their HD feed to FiOS forever they're now ADVERTISING that people switch to it in their TWC attack ads.

No way either organization would let this happen. The number of TWC-only buildings in this city is in the thousands.

Cablevision doesn't compete with TWC so that's why they're advertising them. Cablevision doesn't gain or lose subscribers over this but they will lose ratings if they don't promote alternatives.

Cablevision is just playing hardball. They want to put TWC in a position where they're willing to pay a higher rate in order to avoid losing subscribers to FiOs, RCN, and DirectTv.

Like MSG doesn't get enough of my money already. How can I call THEM to complain?

Cablevision has nothing to do with anything in the City.
I am pretty certain that Cablevision only handles the outer boroughs.

TWC has a stranglehold on Manhattan cable service but RCN has been around and FIOs is on the come up.

I hate changes.

A pox on both of them. Two huge companies that have had monopolies for years whining. They'll settle. And raise their rates, on us.

Signed the petition. If this goes down then i'm done with TWC the day of. Been looking for an excuse to get Fios anyway and now that they have MSG in HD no time like the present.

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.
