Cablevision (CVC) has accused Viacom (VIA) of forcing it to carry 14 low-rated channels the cable company doesn't want to in order to broadcast networks that it does want, or face a penalty of $1B. In a lawsuit, Cablevision is seeking to void an agreement between the companies, with the case being closely watched as pay-TV firms increasingly rebel against bundling deals.
