Jets at risk, again, in Cablevision-Fox fight

Cablevision customers were swiftly nearing their second Sunday without access to Fox broadcasts on Thursday.

Cablevision customers were swiftly nearing their second Sunday without access to Fox broadcasts on Thursday. Area viewers may not mind missing the World Series between San Francisco and Texas, but Sunday would mark the second Jets game blackout if the standoff over Fox’s demand for higher licensing fees isn’t ended.

Jets owner Woody Johnson on Wednesday contacted both News Corp. and Cablevision in hopes of a limited truce to broadcast Sunday’s big game against the Green Bay Packers. As of Thursday night, there was no indication the two sides were any closer to a deal.
