Despite not carrying the MSG Network since January 1, Time Warner Cable seems content with not pursuing a renewal agreement. With a shortened NBA season and teams that aren't as competitive as in previous years, the effect on subscription may just be negligible. And to demonstrate just how low a concern this seems to be, "MSG Media president Mike Bair told analysts Wednesday, adding that no meaningful discussions have occurred between the parties since the network went dark on TWC systems in New York on Jan. 1." Once TWC dropped MSG it was simply time to move on to other deals. Will negotiations ever ramp up; it may not be an issue once the basketball and hockey season ends in a few months.
