MSG PREVENTED FROM BLACKING OUT YANKEES OVER CABLE DISPUTE
Published July 23, 1996
A New York judge has issued a temporary restraining order that prevents MSG Network from blacking out Yankee games and other programming to 70,000 cable subscribers in Brookhaven and 330,000 others in Westchester County and NJ. MSG said they have been in negotiations with TCI over a new cable contract, but that talks "have not been productive." The dispute centers on subscriber rates involving cable operator Satellite Services, Inc., a TCI subsidiary, and sources say it "could eventually result in MSG moving from basic cable to a paid tier." Cablevision subscribers would not be affected (Steve Zipay, NEWSDAY, 7/23).
