A 2nd carriage strike has been called on Time Warner Cable, as an FCC -appointed arbitrator has found the MSO guilty of discrimination against MASN in NC, and has ordered the net be carried in more than 1mln state homes. Time Warner appealed a similar decision by another arbitrator earlier this year, and will not stray from its game plan. "We are disappointed with and disagree with the decision, and we plan to appeal," said the MSO in a statement. The multi-header game between Time Warner and MASN began some 3 years when the MSO deemed unnecessary the NC carriage of net content that includes more than 320 Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nats games. MASN has claimed that the MSO’s only goal is to protect its affiliated programming, and the arbitrator agreed.
