A few weeks ago, Cablevision and GSN's battle was back in the news, which dates back to 2011. When this was in the news a few weeks ago, it was further discussed that Cablevision packaged GSN in a special, sports-based package rather than a different, more appropriate package.
What Cablevision has now said lately is that GSN's 'retiering', or "re-packaging", was not a discrimination against them as a network. Cablevision has told the FCC that their separation of GSN in a different package was "unintentional."
GSN continues to stay off the Cablevision airwaves unless the Cablevision customer orders GSN through a special package that costs extra, which is bundled in a package with various cable sports networks.
