Cord cutters do. MSG is only available on one cord cutting service (Fubo) , which is a joke.


Is MSG no longer available on AT&T/DirecTV Live?

If they take the USL approach, the ESPN+ home matches for NYRBII are almost always called by David Gass & Connor Lade or Steve Jolley. Sometimes Yardley fills in for Gass, but it's rare.

Would be nice to have the home matches called with local talent, but when teams are away, sometimes the lack of knowledge of the sport, nevermind the opposing team, and highly biased calls could make the matches unbearable.

My biggest gripe with Steve is he consistently mixes up black players on RBNY

Man, i know Connor is so associated with the team and all, but his voice and style really annoys me, whether is in the booth or the RB podcast. The other ones are Sebi Salazar and Hercules Gomez. Chipmunk territory

I think it is but that is not even on the radar when I make comparisons every few months (I think it might be okay if you have AT&T? Not sure). YoutubeTV/Hulu/Sling/Fubo are miles better.

Anyway, if MSG just took my money, I'd happily pay 5 a month for that alone.

Gotcha. Yea I dont have AT&T, but Ive contemplated getting it, solely because they carry both MSG and YES (at least last I checked maybe 6 months ago). I would pay a good amount solely for MSG, as well. If they would just make the MSG Go app available on all platforms, I would be thrilled.

Whether you love em or hate em, think the team did a good piece on Steve and Shep. Cant believe they been doing this for that long.

If baseball is delayed, what are the chances MLS games get big push by national networks to fill the void?

Thank you for the chuckle.

I read somewhere that MSG is looking at releasing their own streaming service somewhere down the line, but for the time being the only way I can watch this team is on ESPN+ using my VPN. It is, shall we say, less than ideal.

 

I cut down my Comcast bill by over 30% in protest, but they have a monopoly where I live so there isn't much else I can do.
