Negotiations continued Sunday to try to bring the channels back on the air, but meanwhile National League Championship Series games, which are being aired on Fox, are unavailable to Cablevision customers.
More surprising, however, is that Fox is using the Internet as a bargaining chip, blocking Cablevision Internet customers from watching programming on the Fox and Hulu sites. This will likely raise the ire of Net Neutrality proponents. Assumedly, those with mobile devices that can access Hulu content, like the iPad, would be unaffected if they’re using AT&T’s internet connection, for instance.
Update: It appears that block didn’t last very long, as today Cablevision customers were reporting success in accessing Fox content.
