Time Warner Cable and Madison Square Garden Settle Their Dispute

It is a shame that it took 7 weeks to settle a dispute among two multi-billion dollar corporations with highly paid executives.  Do they really care about their customers or the almighty buck?  I think our elected officials could have intervened earlier.  Below is a message I recived from MSG Media:

New York, NY, February 17, 2012 - MSG Media is pleased to have reached a tentative agreement with Time Warner Cable for carriage of our networks - MSG, MSG+ and Fuse, effective immediately, including tonight's 8:00pm match-up between the New York Knicks and the New Orleans Hornets, as well as the Devils and Sabres games. We would like to thank Governor Andrew Cuomo for his leadership in helping us resolve this matter. We would also like to thank Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and NBA Commissioner David Stern, whose assistance helped allow the parties to reach an agreement. We are committed to providing our fans with award-winning programming that continues to warrant their loyalty and allegiance, and we thank them for their patience.
