Comcast Xfinity Drops MSG Networks: What Are Your Streaming Options to Watch Knicks, Rangers, Devils, Islanders, & Red Bulls Games?

Jason Gurwin

Comcast and MSG Networks were unable to reach a deal by their midnight deadline. As a result, MSG and MSG+, which carry New York Knicks, New York Rangers, New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders, and New York Red Bulls, will no longer be available to Comcast customers in New Jersey and Connecticut.

So how long might this last? Comcast previously had an 18-month blackout in a dispute with YES Network, which carries New York Yankees games – which lasted from mid-2015 to early 2017.

In a statement, MSG Networks says that Comcast “rejected proposals that are consistent with their current deal” and that Comcast is attempting to “force us to accept terms they’d never agree to for their own regional sports networks, including SNY in New York.” The two sides were unable to agree to a temporary extension, which MSG says was offered “under existing terms.”

Comcast said “We don’t believe that our customers should have to pay the millions of dollars in fees that MSG is demanding for some of the most expensive sports content in the country with extremely low viewership in our markets.”

So if you are a Comcast customer with MSG and MSG+ – how can you stream them? Fortunately, there are two options - both which are available month-to-month, with no contracts.

For $64.99 a month, after a 7-Day Free Trial, fuboTV offers MSG as part of their base plan. MSG and MSG+ are also available with DIRECTV STREAM “Choice Plan”, which is available for $84.99 a month, which you can try for 14-Days Risk Free.

Both services also offer SportsNet NY in New York, but only DIRECTV STREAM carries YES Network.

MSG is not available on YouTube TV, Sling TV, or Hulu Live TV. You also can’t use out-of-market packages like NHL.TV, which is now included in ESPN+, or NBA League Pass. Locally televised games will be blacked out by those out-of-market services.
