Cablevision customers, trapped in a battle between the carrier and FOX, will be blacked out for the World Series. To try and keep customers happy, Cablevision just released the following statement:
Cablevision Systems Corp. (NYSE: CVC) today announced that its customers can watch World Series games live on the Internet through MLB.com and the company will fully reimburse the cost of the online coverage.
MLB.com’s 2010 Postseason.TV package features live coverage of all World Series games and includes the option of choosing from eight different fixed camera angles and displaying up to four cameras on the screen simultaneously, along with in-game highlights and other enhancements.
Customers who purchase the package and forward their purchase confirmation to Cablevision will have a $10 credit applied to their monthly bill within two billing cycles.
