This is pathetic

Well, it looks Ike Cablevision lost the proverbial pissing contest between them and ABC. No Oscars tonight. This Is sad. I wonder what networks are going to pull this garbage next.

(This text taken directly from an official e-mail I just received from Cablevision)

We regret to inform you that ABC’s parent company has decided to pull WABC-7 off Cablevision, even though we pay them more than $200 million dollars a year for their group of networks. They are demanding a $40 million dollar increase for the same channels we carry today. In light of these economic times we do not feel it’s appropriate for ABC to hold our viewers hostage in pursuit of undeserved millions.

Many of you just want WABC-7 back on your television. That’s why we are working hard to get WABC-7 back on the air. You can help make a difference by visiting sending their executives an email expressing how you feel.

While we work to return WABC-7 to the lineup, you can watch WABC-7 free over the air by obtaining a digital TV antenna from your local consumer electronics store. Or, you can watch almost all of ABC’s prime time programming free on the Internet at or

Thank you for your patience, while we continue to negotiate a deal that is fair for everyone.
