Cablevision Offers Customers Rebates To Buy MLB Online Due To Blackout
While I am unsure why anyone would want to watch the World Series now that the Yankees stepped aside as a show of good faith, if you are a Cablevision customer, you will want to read on. Fox and News Corp. have been blocking access to Fox 5 and My9 in the NYC area. Cablevision calls the move by Fox and News Corp., “an act of corporate greed”.
Today Cablevision announced an offer to provide a full rebate so Cablevision customers can purchase the ability to watch the World Series online. The subscription is purchased via the MLB website and actually offers more than what you would get by watching on television alone. You can also watch via your Apple iPod, iPad or iPhone and there’s also the option to watch a variety of different cameras at any time.
Here are the details of the offer:
Offer for all Residential and Business customers who may or may not have previously subscribed to Postseason.tv. To receive $10.00 credit, proof of order must be sent in an e-mail to JerichoQA@cablevision.com, fax to 201-405-1804, or mail to Cablevision, Quality Assurance Dept., 200 Jericho Quadrangle, Jericho, NY 11753. Include the order confirmation e-mail from MLB.com Subscription along with subscriber name, address, phone number and account number. Proof of purchase must be submitted by 12/26/10. Allow 2 billing cycles to receive your credit. Cablevision employees are not eligible. Offer expires at the end of the World Series.
Alternatively, you could just stick a set of rabbit ears on your television and watch the World Series old school.
