Jeremy Lin Puts Pressure On Time Warner To Settle With MSG, After leading to the New York Knicks to their fifth straight win last night over the Minnesota Timberwolves, unheralded Jeremy Lin may accomplish something that superstars Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire failed to: end the long battle between MSG and Time Warner, the cable company that dominates New York City.
About 2.1 million Time Warner Cable subscribers lost television access to the NBA’s Knicks and the NHL’s New York Rangers, New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders and Buffalo Sabres on January 1 of this year because of a fight over rate increases between the cable provider and the MSG Network which, like the Knicks and Rangers, is owned by MSG, Inc.
The dispute between MSG and Time Warner has been brewing for years and has become a nasty public relations battle with each side blaming the other as the reason fans are cannot watch the games.Time Warner claims MSG is demanding a 53 percent increase in the price Time Warner pays for its programming. Time Warner has countered by essentially saying the cable company is not telling the truth but has never said exactly how much more money it is asking from Time Warner. The dispute affects subscribers in New York City, upstate New York and parts of Bergen and Hudson counties in New Jersey.
