MSG Networks and Verizon Fios said Fios customers who get MSGN networks as part of their pay-TV package can now use the MSG GO live streaming and video-on-demand platform to watch live events and other programming. MSGN launched the app in late 2014, with Optimum as its first affiliate. Other affiliates are XfinityTV, RCN and Service Electric Broadband Cable. New York Knicks, New York Rangers, New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders, Buffalo Sabres, New York Liberty and New York Red Bulls games are shown on MSG networks.

“With the addition of MSG GO, we will soon carry live streaming of each New York-area regional sports network giving our customers the ability to watch every local team both at home and on-the-go,” Ben Grad, executive director of content strategy and acquisition for Verizon, added in the release. “Partnerships like this fit right into Verizon’s strategy of giving our customers more creative and flexible ways to view all their favorite content including crucial live sports programming.”
