Time Warner Cable and MSG Network Reach Tentative Agreement

Let the Linsanity officially begin!

Knicks, Rangers, Islanders, and Devils fans throughout the tri-state area have reason to celebrate tonight. Time Warner Cable and MSG Network have a tentative carriage agreement. That means 2 million viewers blocked out since the start of the year can finally see the Knicks and their newest sensation, Jeremy Lin.
The deal is effective immediately with tonight’s Knicks and Hornets game, as well as the Devils game.
In a statement, MSG thanked Governor Cuomo for his leadership in helping resolve this issue. The regional sports network also recognized Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and NBA commissioner David Stern, whose assistance helped both parties reach an agreement.
MSG went on to thank loyal fans for their patience.
