http://blogs.forbes.com/sportsmoney/2010/10/15/cablevisionfox-fight-is-so-last-century/ What Cablevision and FOX basically disagree on is pricing. This happened last year, too, when both sides agreed to a one-year contract extension. So last year the Cablevision and FOX could not come to terms with pricing and a one-year extension was started. So for the last year they have been in debate talks over the carriage. Sorry; but if I granted an extension of one year then we could not come to terms and after that period Cablevision called foul I would just tell them to move on. If they don't want to carry then go away. AN OPEN LETTER TO CABLEVISION SUBSCRIBERS FROM WNYW http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/news/local_news/an-open-letter-to-cablevision-subscribers-from-wnyw Cablevision family certainly doesn’t allow arbitrators to set the rates for their cable channels like MSG and AMC. In fact, just a few weeks ago, MSG and MSG Plus went off the dial for millions of DISH Network subscribers – and MSG did not ask for arbitration. http://www.benningtonbanner.com/ci_16352216 While Fox didn’t dispute Cablevision’s claims, it called Cablevision "hypocritical" because it pays more for two of its sister company channels, MSG and MSG Plus, than it does for all 12 Fox channels. MSG and MSG Plus are owned by Madison Square Garden Inc., which like Cablevision is controlled by the Dolan family.
