Oct 24 is a busy day for Cablevision. Not only is it the day for a shareholder vote on the Dolan family taking it private, but it’s also the day the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has set for arguments on CVC’s appeal of a network DVR ruling. A federal court in Mar ruled that the MSO’s planned network DVR service would have violated content providers’ copyrights. — Former Cox employee William Bryant pleaded guilty in Atlanta federal court to hacking into the MSO’s telecom system in May. After being asked to resign, Bryant remotely shut down part of the system, causing a 2-hour loss of computer and phone services (including 911) in Dallas, Las Vegas, New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Bryant faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250K.
