Dispute could darken all Sabres TV games on cable

Feb 12, 2012

Time Warner Cable customers may find themselves missing the rest of Buffalo's hockey season on television.

Fans have already missed most of the Sabres' season due to a dispute over a price increase demanded by the Madison Square Garden Network, or MSG. Network President Michael Bair reports that no end to the dispute appears to be imminent, and with just 27 games left in the Sabres' regular season, cable subscribers could be without the remaining games.

The contractual stalemate is affecting fans of professional sports teams from the New York City region as well.
