Time Warner Cable customers are at risk of losing access to New York Knicks and Rangers games as the cable operator continues a dispute with Madison Square Garden, reports Bloomberg.
The current agreement expires at 12 a.m. on Jan. 1, the story notes. MSG is asking for 53% more for its programming, according to Time Warner Cable, which the cable company says would make MSG the country’s most expensive sports network. MSG calls the claim "categorically untrue," the story notes.
If the two sides don’t reach an agreement, 2.8 million Time Warner Cable subscribers will lose the network and MSG Plus, the piece points out. MSG has been running adds urging those customers to switch to other TV operators, including DirecTV and Verizon’s FiOS, the story adds.
