According to the New York Mets, Cablevision Systems Corp.'s attempt to block its new cable network has been rebuffed.

The team said Thursday that Cablevision's request for a temporary restraining order against the Mets' plans to move its games to a regional cable net in 2006 and beyond had been denied by Justice Helen E. Freedman at a hearing at the New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan.

Cablevision says the Mets move violates an existing contract. The Mets disagree.
