In question is how much Cablevision must pay News Corporation to carry its content. The contract between the companies expired last week and they have still failed to come to a new agreement after negotiating late into Saturday.
In the meantime, News Corporation channels are blacked out for Cablevision customers. News Corporation owns the Fox network. The blackout affects around 3 million people in the New York metropolitan area and could leave them unable to watch the Giants game on Sunday afternoon.
The dispute made a foray into net neutrality questions on Saturday amid reports that News Corporation had blocked Cablevision Internet users from accessing Fox websites, including Hulu.com, which News Corporation partially owns.
