NEW YORK (AP) -- The owner of the New York Knicks has finalized its deal to return the NBA team's games to about 2 million Time Warner Cable subscribers in the New York area.
The Madison Square Garden Co. said Monday that it agreed to a multi-year deal under which the cable operator will carry its networks MSG, MSG+ and Fuse.
A dispute between MSG and Time Warner had left the cable subscribers unable to watch Knicks games since Jan. 1. That coincided with a media frenzy surrounding Jeremy Lin, an untested Knicks point guard who led the team to seven straight wins.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and NBA Commissioner David Stern had pressured the companies to resolve their disagreement.
MSG announced the tentative deal Friday.
