Re: [HD] FCC Rules on Verizon Access to MSG HD

Anyone get the new channels to show up on their cable card setup yet?

After holding out for all this time, they're now ADVERTISING people to switch to FiOS in their attack ads on Time Warner.

Yup, saw that. It's even crazier on their website. They tell you to punch in your area code and it tells you who carries it. They only show FIOS and Directv . I then punched in my area code which is serviced by Cablevision. They didn't even show themselves. Amazingly stupid

DIRECTV 1-888-777-2454
Verizon FiOS 1-800-837-4966

Yeah...and Comcast, you idiots!

There not going to advertise Cablevision because where Cablevision has service in the Bronx and some parts of Brooklyn, you can't get TW Cable I don't think .

I would not expect VZ to exploit this with advertising. This truly is a double edged sword. Remember when the FCC ordered CV to negotiate with Verizon and comparible charges and not to set the price so high to keep it off the air? Well u gotta figure if TW caves then VZ's price goes up as well.

I'm not in the industry unlike many posters here, from what I can tell, but I wonder if it could be the case that whatever deal Verizon struck with CV as a result of the FCC litigation was simply a better deal than CV's existing deal with TW. So CV is now making the best of a bad situation by leveraging its new vendor/competitor (Verizon) against its older vendor/competitor (TW). I'm speculating, of course, because I don't know what the deals are, but the timing of CV's assault on TW (even Sam Rosen was reading on-air announcements last night) seems to suggest the possibility.

CVC and TWC are not competitors. There is no area I know of that has both services available.

Yes we know msg is on comcast so we aren't idiots. But comcast doesn't compete with time Warner.

So, anonymous unregistered one, why is your interactive automated widget informing me, in an area where neither TW nor CV is an option, that MSG is available on DirectTV and FiOS but not Comcast?

I understand the whole TW thing, but if you're going to bother creating a widget that directs you to plug in a ZIP to find out from which providers MSG is available, it really ought to spit out the correct answer, not just a partially correct one. Anyway, it's really not important and I really don't care. Let's move on.
