Let the games begin …

Another week, another network getting dropped in a nasty carriage dispute. News Corp. is already grappling with the loss of carriage of FX, National Geographic Channel and 19 regional sports network on Dish two weeks ago. Now the company’s broadcast network Fox is off Cablevision. After the two sides couldn’t reach an agreement on a new deal, Cablevision at midnight ET stopped carrying the local Fox stations Fox 5 and My9 as well as Nat Geo Wild and Fox Business Network, putting in jeopardy the upcoming baseball playoff games and the World Series on Fox for 3 million Cablevision customers in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.
