Re: you would think
You do realize that Cablevision can go back to court on this again right? The FCC makes "rules" not laws. The Courts can easily tell the FCC they have no right to set prices nor be in the middle of anything regarding channel contracts, etc. Why do you think they haven't gotten into the middle by now? They're afraid the Courts will slap them a few times. But instead of slapping them to make them crazy; they need to start slapping the FCC with a few fines and pay court fees to those involved.
And if CV doesn't provide those channels by 11/25 what's going to happen? The FCC is going to fine CV? LMAO! Yah that will really stand up. They'll go to court over that one. T and VZ should have thought about this before they got into the TV business. Maybe they should go to the FCC and require them to set contract pricing for all the channels they like to drop or threaten to drop due to they can't get a price they want to pay. Maybe we all should go to the FCC and tell them we want to pay $15 a month for every channel XX provider can offer.
