Himes Statement on Cablevision Fox Dispute

October 16, 2010
Press Release

"I am  deeply  disappointed that today my constituents can no longer see Fox 5 and MY9, including Major League Baseball playoff games and the NY Giants football game.  It is imperative that the parties immediately restore the programming to consumers and submit to binding arbitration.  I call on the Federal Communications Commission, as the federal agency charged with protecting the interest of consumers in such disputes, to act quickly to bring the parties together, to reaffirm its call for arbitration and to ensure that consumers are able to see the programming."
