NEW YORK (AP) - Subscribers of Time Warner Cable woke up New Year’s morning to find the sports channels MSG Network and MSG+ missing from their cable TV line-up.

The New York cable company says fans may miss games featuring the New York Knicks, Rangers and Islanders; the Buffalo Sabres; and New Jersey Devils. That’s because it has failed to reach an agreement with MSG Networks owner Madison Square Garden Co.

MSG has urged customers to switch providers. The network didn’t return a call for comment.

It is the latest spat between a cable company and a channel provider that underscores the friction on both sides over the fees carriers pay for channels.

The next games scheduled on MSG Networks are at 7 p.m. Monday: New York Knicks-Toronto Raptors and New Jersey Devils-Ottawa Senators.
