New York Rangers fans who use Comcast Infinity as its cable provider will need to finds another way to watch games now that they have dropped MSG Networks from its channel lineup.
Just as the New York Rangers are getting ready to begin the 2021-2022 season, fans who watch their beloved Blueshirts on Comcast Infinity will need to finds another way to watch games with the announcement that the cable network dumped MSG Networks from its lineup.
This change also affects fans of the New York Knicks, New Jersey Devils, and the New York Islanders.
MSG network released a statement this morning;
â€œRight when fans are looking forward to the start of the NBA and NHL seasons, Comcast dropped MSG Networks to try to force us to accept terms theyâ€™d never agree to for their own regional sports networks, including SNY in New York. They rejected proposals that are consistent with their current deal and deals we have with other major providers, as well as our offer to keep our programming on air under existing terms so we could continue to work on a longer-term agreement. And even though theyâ€™ve taken away hundreds of live Knicks, Devils, Rangers and Islanders games, they continue to charge Xfinity customers the same monthly rate — in addition to a regional sports fee that they increased 22% in January to more than $10 per month. Comcastâ€™s refusal to negotiate is deeply disappointing.â€
Fans who primarily reside in New Jersey and Connecticut will be the ones who have to deal with this issue. MSG Networks provide exclusive live professional games, beginning with tonightâ€™s Rangers – Devils preseason game.
