The following is the latest statement from Viacom on the Cablevision lawsuit:

“This suit is nothing more than a hypocritical attempt by Cablevision to void a long term carriage deal they agreed to only two months ago.  Cablevision is crying foul over a standard business practice that expands choice and lowers cost for consumers – a practice they use extensively to sell their own services. Cablevision received significant discount on a package of networks that account for nearly 20% of the total viewing audience.  Now they want the lower price without the obligation to offer our networks to their customers.  For Cablevision it’s ‘do as we say and not as we do’ – an arrogant approach all too familiar to its customers.”
