Anyone else find this truly bizarre? Cablevision, still unable to broadcast the World Series to 3 million customers in New York and Philly, is formally asking the government and non-profit agencies to re-transmit FOX’s telecast of the World Series on the Internet, more or less on the theory that doing so is a public service and thus an exception to the copyright law.
Uh, yeah. And I’ll believe that the minute that Cablevision — once it has its rights to big time sports like the World Series and NFL football restored — waives its subscription fees so that customers can watch that stuff for free again.
Meanwhile, I will continue to post any and all FOX-Cablevision dispute news because doing so allows me to use this photo of the television again, and it’s easily my favorite pic right now.
