Is the FCC going to compensate Cablevision for the expropriation of its private property for public benefit? I didn't think it would either.
Perhaps if content providers were not allowed to own content delivery networks, this would not be an issue, but the FCC is in an oh-so-happy-approve-every-merger mood so we won't be seeing this happen any time soon.
So the consumer should have to pay for multiple providers. Cablevision for the sports and DirecTv( or whoever ) for everything else. Yeah that's a real good thing to do to consumers who are cash strapped in a bad economy.
