MSG Goes Dark on TWC

MSG Networks removed its sports channels from Time Warner Cable lineups. It is the second time in 15 months that MSG Networks has done this to New York-area fans, having removed their channels from DISH Network subscribers in September 2010.

"We had a deal within reach earlier this year," said Mike Angus, SVP of content acquisition for Time Warner Cable, in a statement. "Despite agreeing to the asked for 6.5% price increase on rates that MSG themselves deemed as fair market rates just last year, MSG reneged on the deal and instead, demanded a whopping 53% increase and refused to negotiate further."
