Oct 20, 2010

(AP) -- The dispute between Fox and Cablevision that has left 3 million cable subscribers in the New York area without Fox programming has stretched into its fifth day.

Fox, owned by ., says talks with Corp. are to resume Wednesday.

But both sides reported no new developments in the standoff over how much Cablevision will pay to carry the network on its lineup.

The dispute has led to the highest-profile blackout over broadcast fees in years, leaving Cablevision subscribers without access to New York Giants games and the medical drama "House."

Unless both sides come to an agreement by Wednesday night, subscribers will miss the fourth National League Championship Series game between the San Francisco Giants and the Philadelphia Phillies.

FOX programming is trash. I don't watch it, so who cares? I'd like my cable company to drop all Fox channels, including the (not) News shows.
