    I just checked and it's still working for me. I found this post, http://mediamemo.allthingsd.com/20101016/news-corp-shuts-off-hulu-access-to-cablevision-subs/ which said they were pulling it from Cablevision customers but changed their mind and put it back.

    FOX definitely needs to do what Dish has done to YES Network, MLB Network and all of the other channels Dish played hardball went and guess what, Dish won't ever carry YES, MLB nor CSN Philly. Charlie definitely turned furry and emo when he always pulls channels and doesn't really care for bringing them back. No wonder he's losing subs. MSG tying in fuseTV it'll be the next thing to no YES, no MSG and Boomer Esiasion's radio show on WFAN. It's a huge shame what Dish Network has come to. Dish just needs to go file Chapter 7, Charlie just needs to give up his satellite service, refund all of their money as well his for the Distant networks he's contracted with, and became an hero and later sell Dish to Sky Angel so that he can get his company done all over with.

    RIP Dish Network (1996-2011)

    Er, well, I may not subscribe to some conspiracy theory, but let's not forget that Chase Carey, who was CEO of DirecTV from 2003-2009, previously worked for News Corp as COO of Fox, Inc., and CEO of Fox Broadcasting.

    In January he returned to News Corp as President/COO/Deputy Chairman where, of course, Rupert Murdoch is Chairman/CEO.

    However, the Executive Suite at DirecTV has a Pepsi/YUM tinge now and no one with direct ties to the Murdoch Empire.

    From Engadget:

    Full article

    FOX can't block all internet access (unless they are insane), but interesting that they are singling out Cablevision's internet customers too... even if those internet customers are actually a DirecTV customer for their TV viewing.

    Even if they did an about face and turned it back on quickly... the fact that they actually tried at all should be yet another nail in the FOX banner that shows they are the bad guy in this particular debate.

    IF people hadn't screamed about Hulu, would they have stopped broadcasting OTA in those markets too?

    I hope to see a headline using a baseball metaphor: Murdoch's Evil Empire Strikes Out.

    Because it blocked all Cablevision internet customers, including the DirecTV sub is probably why they had to back off tha plan.

    Bad guy or just playing hardball? Of course they're going to do whatever they can to pressure Cablevision to come to an agreement. Guess it's like a union when they set up a picket line, try to shut the company down so they have to come to an agreement.

    you do realize that pretty much anyone and everyone here (but you ironically) quit paying any kind of attention to anything you have to say a long time ago...right?

    Yea, we get it Bauer, you do not like DISH and are celebrating in some masturbatory fashion over the vision that your EVIL EMPIRE is going down because you and you alone can see the future. I'm personally weary of your troll act and would hope that a moderator shuts down your sophomoric diatribe sooner than later…

    This reminds me of someone who used to post on the Dish Usenet groups many years ago. He was a soccer fan and everyday would promise the demise of Dish because they didn't carry a certain soccer series that he was interested in. He was constantly posting a "Tic tic tic" at the end of his messages. Thankfully, the sky never fell and he found other things to do and eventually disappeared. Is anyone around from those days who remembers this pest?

    Aww, go easy on the guy. He's so Fox, he chose to name himself after a Fox show character.;)

    I downgraded my package (thusly losing the same channels you Dish folks lost) out of solidarity, and so Fox wont get any additional money from me. Might miss Nat Geo, but Ill live.

    Go Dish and Cablevision...

    You are, of course, correct. When I corrected the statement that the Congress was not in session I mistakenly said "House" and not "Senate". I have gone back and added an Edit addressing my mistake.

    Thanks for your tactful correction. lol

    How can FOX hold so much contempt for the end user or the product. You and I the end consumer, the person paying there bill and keeping them on the air. Its one thing to fight with Dish and Cablevision, but to even think you can also control HULU who you probably have a contract with is beyond believeability. I would guess that HULU threaten a huge lawsuit if they broke there contract for carriage with them, Hulu.

    Ah well, to quote from my own blog post from back in 2007:
    The owners are:
    • NBC Universal (32%)
    • Fox Entertainment Group (31%)
    • ABC (27%)
    • Providence Equity Partners (10%)

    Just had Direct take place of my Dish today, HD quality pic is better than Dish. Not happy with the remote and ease of use.
