Scripps Finds Way Around Cablevision Blackout in N.Y.

Jan 6, 2010  •  Post A Comment

New York metropolitan-area viewers who missed Food Network’s telecast of "Super Chef Battle: An Iron Chef America Event" Sunday night due to the ongoing dispute between parent Scripps Networks Interactive and Cablevision will have another chance to see the highly-rated program.

Scripps is teaming up with two local TV stations, WPIX-TV in New York and WTXX-TV in Hartford, Conn., to broadcast an encore presentation of the two-hour special Jan. 10 at 8 p.m.

New York fans of Scripps’ HGTV network will also get to see "HGTV Dream Home 2010 Tour" in a special WPIX airing Jan. 8 at 3 p.m.

Some 3.1 million subscribers in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut lost access to both HGTV and Food Network Jan. 1 when Scripps pulled its programming from the cable provider while negotiating a new contract.

  1. This is pure BULL S%&* on the part of
    Cablevision they don’t want to pay good money for good programming, they rather give you CRAP for your money.
    As rates go up and up, programs are getting worse and worse.
    I think every body should scale down on their packages making them feel the pinch, sending a message to Cablevision that we are the costumers and without us they have NOTHING.

  2. Cablevision needs to get their salespeople out there and sell more spots and leave the subscribers alone.

  3. what is the deal!!!! cablevision charges a fortune for its loyal customers and screws us on shows that make sense and normal people enjoy. CABLEVISION SUCKS for that

  4. I’m glad that Cablevision didn’t fold to Scripps. I missed Food Network a lot, but didn’t want Cablevision to concede to Scrips’ blackmail. They should be ashamed of their low-dealing tactics.
