Cablevision and Fox strike out

Cablevision and News Corp.’s Fox failed to reach an agreement before the first pitch of the World Series last night.

The blackout is heading into its 13th day and may continue through Sunday’s Jets vs. Packers game on Fox.

Last night, Cablevision, whose CEO is James Dolan, told customers that if they paid the $10 fee to get access to the live Web-streaming of the World Series, it would reimburse them.

Yesterday, the two parties briefly went back to the negotiating table after Cablevision made a new offer — but News Corp. rejected it.

Cablevision said it would pay for Fox, but that its offer was contingent on getting the same price Time Warner Cable pays for a package of channels that includes Fox.

    I don’t know who to hate more, Cablevision or Fox. I’ve always hated Cablevision for every year increasing rates so now I am paying well over $100 a month for what I used to pay $60 8 years ago.

    Now this time they are making a case that Fox is demanding more than the other networks so I wonder who is really to blame this time. And they agreed to arbitration, but Fox didn’t.

    Did you hear that Cablevision will pay for people to get an subscription to watch the World Series?

    But what about football?!
