I have DISH Network and I still dont have MSG. I went the entire season without MSG and watching any games unless on VS on my actual tv. The rest I watched on my computer thanks to MicrowavePizza. Ridiculous.

Another update on this front finally.

An appeals court affirmed the FCC's new rules that would force Cablevision to sell MSG HD, denying Cablevision's appeal. The court only tweaked the new rules slightly saying that rather than the FCC being able to assume all withheld channels are unfair, complainants about withheld channels have to show that such withholding is an unfair advantage on an individual channel basis.

Hopefully this will get things moving now....
