Cablevision and Fox Duke It Out Over Reams of Cash Leaving Consumers in the Dark -- ivi TV Continues to Stream Fox's Channels

Let the big media companies brawl. In the meantime, New York consumers can remain unaffected and watch their favorite NY football team on ivi TV. That's a battle consumers are actually interested in watching, not this spectacle over millions of dollars being fought over between cable companies and TV networks.

ivi TV announced today that it would keep consumers' best interest in mind while big media battles it out over revenue streams. News Corp made good on its threat to blackout Cablevision's signal in the NY market. Presently, more than 3.1 million Cablevision subscribers in New York have lost access to broadcasts on FOX stations, unless they access them with ivi TV.

ivi TV promises to keep TV programming flowing to the NY area regardless of the duration of the two media titan's tantrums. All Cablevision subscribers can legally access Fox channels via ivi TV's app.

Quote, attributable to Ron Erickson, ivi TV's chairman:

"Let the big media companies brawl. In the meantime, New York consumers can remain unaffected and watch their favorite NY football team on ivi TV. That's a battle consumers are actually interested in watching, not this spectacle over millions of dollars being fought over between cable companies and TV networks."

ivi TV's downloadable app makes it easy to watch live television programming online for only $4.99 a month after a 30 day free trial. The company pays broadcasters in the same fashion as prescribed by law for cable companies.

ivi TV offers more content than Hulu and a 30 day free trial to watch major broadcast channels including ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, The CW, PBS, and others from a growing number of local affiliates, all available via a downloadable app at ivi.tv.
