Time has run out for New York sports fans.

Sports network MSG decided to pull its MSG and MSG Plus networks from Time Warner Cable customers Sunday morning after talks between the two companies failed to reach a new agreement.

Time Warner Cable, which owns and operates NY1, is calling MSG’s demand for a 53 percent price increase “unreasonable.”

It adds that MSG should come back to the bargaining table instead of holding New York sports fans hostage.

Time Warner Cable says it offered a contract extension through September so negotiations could continue with no disruption of service, but MSG refused.

For its part, MSG called the situation “disappointing,” adding it wants Time Warner Cable to value its programming the same way as other TV providers.

MSG is the home network for the Knicks, Rangers, Islanders, Devils and Sabres.

There's no word yet on when both companies will resume negotiations.
