Cablevision paying for MLB.com viewing during Fox dispute

updated 11:00 am EDT, Thu October 28, 2010

Cablevision to refund subscriptions to MLB.com

In the newest development in the recent dispute between Cablevision and Fox, where the latter is demanding Cablevision pays it $150 million per year for its channels, Cablevision says it will refund subscribers who watch MLB games on MLB.com. The move is an attempt to appease angry subscribers, as Fox channels have been blacked out to Cablevision subscribers on Long Island. Fox has also recently blocked its shows on Hulu from Cablevision subscriber IP addresses, though access has since been restored.

Cablevision promises that it will apply a $10 credit within two billing cycles to the account of subscribers who purchase the MLB.com package and forward the confirmation to Cablevision. The price incidentally matches what Hulu Plus service costs per month, although it doesn't offer live sports.

Before this, Fox accused Cablevision of directing users to pirated Fox Sports streams. At the same time, Fox has rejected a one-year offer from Cablevision that would match what Time Warner pays for Fox in New York and Philadelphia. [via DSLReports]
