No progress in Time Warner Cable-MSG dispute

MSG sports channels are still missing from Time Warner Cable in New York. Both MSG and the cable company say no more talks are planned.

The dispute knocked MSG and MSG+ off of Time Warner on Sunday.

MSG says Time Warner subscribers will miss 15 New York Knicks basketball games, nine New York Rangers hockey games, and 11 New Jersey Devils hockey games. MSG also carries Buffalo Sabres hockey on Time Warner in upstate New York.

The first missed games will be played Monday night.

Time Warner says it won't pay a 53 percent fee increase sought by MSG. MSG says it is not seeking a 53 percent increase. It says it wants to be paid the same as other TV providers. MSG has urged viewers to switch cable providers.
