    Is it Cablevision or is it FOX?
    This is the second time this has happened with a channel on Cablevision, so I guess it might be Cablevision.

    I'm going to have to watch this game online now.

    Fox wants to receive $150m per year, they currently get $75m per year from cablevision.

    Cable apparently offered a "fair increase" so probably around the $100m mark, and fox pulled programming. So effectively it is foxs fault, but Cable should pay so I can watch the boys :(( now I have to go waste money at hooters lol

    So it sounds like Cablevision is low-balling channels, compared with other providers. Last time it happened it was with some garbage channel, like HGTV, but now they're screwing with our football; I might have to dump these chumps.

    At least you have a Hooters near you, football and hottties serving you. Not a bad deal. :D

    direct tv(i think) is about to lose fox as well, so 'get what i pay for.com' has been advertising so you can find other providers

    Lucky I switched to DirecTV just before the season started. :)

    Cablevision is horrid when it comes to customer service. This isn't the first time a channel has disappeared (or was going too)

    James Dolan sucks.

    Yeah it is my provider which means I will have to go somewhere else to watch the Cowboys games. But oh well, if I weren't lazy I would go set up analog antenna again and find out how to put that off-air through my box, but screw it.

    Dish has already lost all fox programming but local fox which it's contract expires on 10/31. Fx, fox sports, and a few other channels. According to Fox it has been trying to negotiate with Dish for 6 months but Dish has not been willing to work out a new deal.
