I'm not quite sure I understand Fox's supposed (and very manufactured) "outrage" at the news that Cablevision employees are telling upset callers to go online to find streams of sporting events that they can't watch on Fox due to the fee dispute between Cablevision and Fox. After all, Fox is the one blocking Cablevision subscribers from seeing the content, so it really shouldn't be surprised to find out that Cablevision is helping people find the content. Also, while the particular streams may be unauthorized, it's a bit silly to call the sites themselves "illegal" as Fox's announcement states. Similarly, it's kind of silly that the Daily News, who is reporting on this, isn't naming the sites in question.
