Knicks on TV: MSG, Time Warner finalize deal
Knicks basketball is back for 2 million Time Warner Cable subscribers in New York City. The carrier has finalized its deal with the MSG network. Fans had not been able to watch Knicks games on the network since Jan. 1.
The Madison Square Garden Co. said Monday that it agreed to a multi-year deal under which the cable operator will carry its networks MSG, MSG+ and Fuse.
A dispute between MSG and Time Warner had left the cable subscribers unable to watch Knicks games since Jan. 1. That coincided with a media frenzy surrounding Jeremy Lin, an untested Knicks point guard who led the team to seven straight wins.
MSG announced the tentative deal Friday.
