FCC Rules Cablevision Has Until Nov. 25th to Provide HD Service to FIOS Customers

televisionJohn Eggerton at Multichannel News reports the FCC has denied a request by Madison Square Garden and Cablevision to review a Media Bureau decision that it must make high-definition feeds of its MSG and MSG-Plus regional sports nets available to AT&T and Southern New England Telephone Company in Connecticut, and Verizon in the New York and Buffalo markets.

The commission affirmed that original order and refused a request to stay its effective date, though it found that “in order to provide sufficient time for compliance,” it would give them 15 days from the Nov. 10 order release date to provide the programming.

The Media Bureau had ruled that Cablevision/Madison Square Garden Network violated FCC program-access rules by withholding HD versions of the RSNs.

Cablevision said in a statement that it was considering all its options

…how pumped are FIOS customers!!!!
