I woke up dumb late today expectin to watch the Lakers get thrashed and I see abc isn't working because of a financial dispute.... i'm not sayin abc/disney/espn is right tryna get more money cuz i don't know the situation... but Optimum better get it together because if they lose ESPN thats IT... I'm deading cable all together because all I watch is ESPN and NBATV... the way u can download most of these shows thats the only reason I have cable... anyways I was wonderin if anyone had a similar issue today

I believe they were asking Cablevision to pay $1 per customer but not having ABC sucks. I enjoy watching some shows live as opposed to streaming them later online

I work for Cablevision as a service tech. Cablevision wants an additional 40 mil a year on top of the 200 plus million we're currently paying them. Here in Connecticut it's not a big deal, because we still get channel 8 which is an affiliate, so we get the same programming. If you have an antenna, you can pick up ABC over the air and/or watch your ABC shows on hulu. Other than that, you're SOL.

Yeah, a service announcement was on when I put my TV on ABC today. I had to find a stream for the Lakers / Magic game.

Jersey too.  I'm on the shore so i get ny and philly stations and I don't even get philly's channel 7 (which is channel 6) so you probably can add philly to the list as well

If that's all you have cable for, then you should cancel it and save yourself the $30-40 a month.

The programming on those two channels are garbage and you can get the games for free through other means.

Not that easy for some people. Some places like Co-op City in the bronx will not allow you to install a Dish.
