Report: MSG Network and Time Warner resolve dispute


The New York Times is reporting that MSG Network and Time Warner Cable have ended their standoff. A formal agreement is expected to be reached in time for Time Warner subscribers to watch tonight’s Knicks home game versus the Hornets.

Via the Times:

The end of the impasse will be announced Friday afternoon by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and executives of both companies. A settlement had been urged by Eric T. Schneiderman, the state’s attorney general. The governor’s intervention in the past 24 hours with James L. Dolan, executive chairman of Madison Square Garden, and Glenn Britt, chief executive of Time Warner Cable, accelerated the agreement.

The blackout deprived many Knicks fans around the state of seeing much of the rapid rise to stardom of point guard Jeremy Lin — as well as the continued success of the New York Rangers.

MSG also broadcasts the Devils, Islanders, and Sabres.
