PROMOTION DESCRIPTION:  The NY1 & MSG Network Knicks Analyst for the Day Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) takes place from March 1, 2016 at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) to March 25, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. ET (the “Promotion Period”).  Entry in the Sweepstakes does not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes.  By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Time Warner Cable dba Time Warner Cable News, 75 Ninth Avenue, New York, NY 10011 (“Sponsor”), which shall be final and binding in all respects.

ELIGIBILITY:  Only legal U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or older who reside in a household that has a Time Warner Cable residential account in good standing as of 2/29/16 in New York, NY are eligible to enter.  Employees, officers and directors of Sponsor, Time Warner Cable Enterprises LLC, MSG Networks Inc., MSGN Holdings, L.P. (collectively with MSG Networks Inc., “MSG”), the New York Knicks, LLC (“Knicks”), the National Basketball Association (“NBA”) and its member teams, NBA Properties, Inc. (collectively with the Knicks, the NBA and its member teams, "NBA Entities"), and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, retailers, sales representatives, advertising and promotion agencies (collectively, the “Promotion Entities”) and the immediate family members, and/or those living in the same household of each are ineligible to enter the Sweepstakes or win a prize.  MSG and the NBA Entities are not responsible for the collection, submission or processing of entries, the administration or execution of the Sweepstakes, the selection of winners or fulfillment of prize. Sweepstakes is void where prohibited by law.

HOW IT WORKS:

To enter the Sweepstakes, you must be a registered user of Twitter and a follower of @NY1.  Registration is free and available at www.Twitter.com.  During the Promotion Period, Sponsor will post a message about the Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes Tweet”); eligible entrants may earn one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes by Re-Tweeting the Sweepstakes Tweet during the Promotion Period.  The Re-Tweet must include #WinWithNY1 AND #Entry to qualify as an entry into the Sweepstakes.  Limit one (1) entry per person/Twitter account.

Only entries which are fully compliant with these Official Rules are “Valid Entries.”  In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. Entries from any person or Twitter account in excess of the above-stated entry limit are prohibited and will void all entries by that entrant.  The Promotion Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Sweepstakes.  The Promotion Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries.

WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION:  At the end of the Promotion Period, one (1) prize winner will be randomly selected from all eligible entries received. The potential prize winner will be notified via direct message.  Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason.  If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond within seventy-two (72) hours of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected.  Sponsor, in its sole discretion, will attempt to contact up to three (3) potential winners of a prize in accordance with the above procedure, after which the prize in question may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed.  If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason prior to award, such potential prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate prize winner may be selected.  The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.
