NEW YORK (PIX11)—'Linsanity' has been restored, according to reports, with MSG Network and Time Warner bringing their 48-day contract dispute to a close Friday.
More than 2 million Time Warner subscribers will finally be able to watch national sensation Jeremy Lin and the red-hot NY Rangers on MSG now that both sides have come to terms on royalty fees, the initial sticking point. Time Warner subscribers lost their hometown teams Jan. 1.
According to reports, the emergence of Jeremy Lin greatly intensified public pressure for both sides to reconcile the dispute. Pre-Jeremy Lin, the Knicks were mired in a terrible streak that included dropping 11 of 13 games.
Now that the Garden has gone Linsane, however, with the Knicks facing New Orleans Friday after winning seven games in a row, both sides pushed to get a deal done.
