    (CNN) -- News Corp. pulled the plug on Cablevision customers Saturday, blacking out more than 3 million households in the New York area over a programming fee dispute.
    The blackout affects Fox 5 and My9, Charles Schueler, Cablevision's vice president of communications, said in a statement.
    Sports fans could be left in the dark if an agreement is not reached soon. They could miss Saturday's Game 1 of the National League Championship Series, featuring the Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco Giants.

    If the playoffs are not broadcast, MLB should seriously consider taking their game elsewhere. Murdoch is one greedy asshole (IMHO). I'm sure the echo chamber disagrees.

    or the people could simply get another cable company

    Not sure why anyone wants to watch it anyway. The Playoff comentators are lame. Id rather listen to the radio.

    I turn off the sound on the Yankee game. In other news, nobody really gives a fuck about the Phillies or the Giants

    So MLB can act in self-interest, but News Corp cannot?

    Why is only one party to the dispute "greedy?"

    Why not the other one being greedy as well?

    I contend that no one cares about the Yankees.
