MSG Networks Introduces “MSG GO”
MSG Networks is launching “MSG GO,” a new service that gives sports fans access to live television and video on demand content on smartphones, tablets, and computers. Scheduled to launch in December, “MSG GO” enables fans, whether at home or on-the-go, to watch all live Knicks games as they appear on MSG Networks.
Fans will also enjoy all Knicks live pre- and post-game shows, as well as current and past episodes of MSG’s award-winning original programming, including “Four Courses with JB Smoove,” “Beginnings,” “The AV Squad,” “The Game 365,” “The Lineup” and new weekly series “Nothing But Knicks.”
“We are thrilled to offer ‘MSG GO’ to Knicks fans,” said Andrea Greenberg, executive vice president, MSG Media. “‘MSG GO’ provides our fans the great convenience of watching our content throughout their home or on-the-go.”
To ensure they don’t miss a minute of the action, fans can access “MSG GO” for the Knicks’ upcoming schedule, and set reminders on their personal devices for all Knicks games on MSG Network.
Once launched, “MSG GO” will be made available at no additional charge to subscribers of participating television providers who receive MSG Networks as part of their pay television subscription. MSG Networks has reached an agreement with Cablevision, and is currently engaged in discussions with other operators. 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.
