'Time Warner Inc. and Comcast Corp., the two largest cable TV companies in the country, announced last week that they had reached an agreement to buy Adelphia's assets, a deal valued at $17.6 billion in cash and stock.'
'The agreements call for the Rigas family assets to be turned over to Adelphia, which will then pay $715 million in cash and stock to a fund designed to help investors who lost billions of dollars when the company collapsed in 2002. To avoid criminal prosecution, Adelphia also agreed to continue helping the Justice Department with its investigations.'
'Under the agreement, Adelphia founder John Rigas and son Timothy, along with other members of their family, will forfeit ownership of more than 95 percent of the family's assets, including most their cable television systems, real estate worth about $10 million and about $567 million in Adelphia securities.'

'Of more immediate concern is what the Time Warner-Comcast deal could mean to the Buffalo Sabres' plans to send its games to Rochester and Syracuse through its deal with the Madison Square Garden Network (MSG). Time Warner has dropped MSG from both cities in a financial feud. Once the Adelphia deal takes effect, and if MSG stays off the Rochester and Syracuse systems when the Sabres start playing again, the NHL team will be out in the cold in those markets again.'
