In Topic: FCC Ruling Gives Verizon & AT&T Access To MSG’s HD Channels

16 November 2011 - 06:34 PM

Looks like it's a done deal! Coming in mid-December. Verizon Press Release:

Like a home team win in overtime, Verizon, at last, expects to be able to offer its FiOS TV subscribers the channels of the MSG Network in high-definition in the coming weeks.

The HD feeds of both MSG and MSG+ are ultimately expected to be made available to FiOS TV subscribers in New York City and state, northern and central New Jersey, and Connecticut. The two channels will be included in all levels of FiOS TV service packages, except FiOS TV Local.

The company expects the channels to be available in mid-December. The exact channel locations will be determined closer to launch date. FiOS TV already carries MSG and MSG+ in standard definition (SD) format.


Let's just hope CV doesn't find some other way to delay again.

This is going to drag on a little longer...

They have until October 22 to strike a business deal.

But Cablevision appealed the FCC decision and on Tuesday the FCC granted a partial stay of the order in that Cablevision does not have to actually provide the feeds until at least Nov 14 so the FCC can do its review of the appeal. Biz deal must still be struck by Oct 22 though.
