Fox threatens legal action against Cablevision
(AP) -- Fox is threatening to sue Cablevision amid a dispute that has left the cable TV provider's 3 million subscribers without Fox programming for more than a week.
Fox also says Cablevision has been directing its customers to websites that carry Fox shows in violation of copyright laws.
Cablevision is responding by accusing Fox of trying to distract from the blackout, which may now cut into the World Series games.
Fox has been dark for Cablevision subscribers since Oct. 16. The companies continue to argue over how much Cablevision should have to pay to carry Fox on its lineup.
