It’s about time. I often wondered what the hold up was when it came to streaming a live New York Rangers, New York Islander, New Jersey Devils and Buffalo Sabres games. FOX has hockey streams but the New York Metro area has been deprived of such and last I checked, this is one of the biggest sports markets in the United States.
However, the time is almost upon us where we can sit in a car, bar or wherever and watch our favorite NHL teams in the palm of out hands. Yes, it’s time to celebrate. MSG reached a deal with the NHL on February 1, 2017, that will now allow them to offer this service to the Metro area.
“As the outlet for more live local NHL games than any other RSN in the country, we are pleased to partner with the NHL and our teams to provide hockey fans with additional ways to view our games,” said Andrea Greenberg, president and chief executive officer, MSG Networks. “With the addition of the NHL, MSG GO will certainly be a premiere mobile destination for hockey fans in the region.”
I’m a writer that offer links to live streams and it was a pain that I could not provide one for the area I live in and the for fans of specific teams. Now, there is no set date as to when MSGGO will launch the new setup but I’m hoping it will be before the end of February. Please stay tuned. And, for anyone not familiar with MSGGO here is a quick rundown of that the station does.
MSG GO is currently available at no charge to subscribers of participating television providers who receive MSG Networks as part of their pay television subscription. Subscribers with a supported smartphone or tablet can download the free MSG GO app by visiting the App Store or the Google Play store. On computers, customers may visit MSGGo.com.
