A person familiar with the matter says that Madison Square Garden has reached a deal to put Knicks games back on television for some 2 million Time Warner Cable subscribers in the New York area. The dispute had left subscribers unable to watch the Knicks since Jan. 1, meaning they couldn't tune in to watch Lin lead the team to seven straight wins.
