Cablevision and Fox are still feuding, depriving 3.5 million people in the Big Apple of Fox channels 5 and 9 plus Fox Sports. The solution?

"We have a team that's like online trying to find things online for free," the rep is recorded as saying. "So they send us these emails." Apparently there is some big baseball series that some New Yorkers are still interested in watching (even though the Yanks are out), so Fox has sent out a cease-and-desist letter to Cablevision.
