DISH Network Pulls Plug on Devils, Islanders, Knicks and Rangers

Ronald MonestimeCorrespondent IOctober 2, 2010

Subscribers of the DISH Network, who also happen to be fans of the New Jersey Devils, the New York Islanders, the New York Knicks and/or the New York Rangers, woke up Friday morning to the realization they no longer had access to the MSG Network and MSG Plus as well as no idea when their sports viewing experience would be fully restored.

According to the New York Post, DISH Network Corporation, the second-largest United States satellite provider, and the Madison Square Garden Networks failed to reach an agreement before the October 1 expiration of their previous carriage contract. The impasse in negotiations occurred when the two sides could not come to terms on how much of an increase in fees would be paid to Madison Square Garden.
