Has anyone signed up for this streaming tv service? It is the only streaming service that offers msg and msg+ at this time. They do not have tnt, tbs or espn but otherwise their sports content is not matched by the other streaming options out there from what I have read. I am currently doing a free trial with directv now so I can watch the Yankees on FS1. I love their service but not having msg is a deal killer for me.

I am going to do the free trial when the season starts. I only am able to get one msg channel with my cable provider and Knick games are blacked out for Sabres games where I live.

Update: I am on my free trial and I really like this service. The roku app is in the beta stage so it does not look as good when you are selecting a program. However, compared to DirectTv Now, it has had no lagging with streams. It also is the only streaming service to offer MSG and msg2. There is a phone app that has worked fine and has a casting option. I am not able to get MSG go so this allows me to catch games on my phone if I need to. Biggest downfalls are no espn, TNT or tbs. I am not a soccer fan but there s a ton of soccer content offered.

Wow, i missed this earlier so im glad you gave an update. Its weird because around the time of your first post is when I was checking on fubo tv myself but i was in my directv now trial. Im not a fan of Directv now when it comes to sports because of the lack of espn3. Right now though im in my sling tv trial but I'll definitely give fubo a try starting sunday.

I liked DirectTv Now but it didn't offer msg for me. In the past I have paid for streaming services like ballstreams etc. but I don't be grudge paying for legal content, I just didn't have access to it. Also, some of the streaming services are asking for payment in bitcoin or other less traceable ways and I don't really want to go there.
I would love to hear what you think of sling tv.

If you get DTV sports pack, you will get 24hrs MSG and YES network.., and when you call give them a sob story about you and your family are considering canceling, because everything is cheaper to stream.they will offer you a nice little package..

just did it a week ago, went from $225 to $104,and that's redzone, nba league, and every other sports channel, I just have to re-up for 12 months, that was the only draw back.

They stop playing the preseason games a few yrs back, now they give you the first week and a half for free.

You can now sign up only for 1 team ( Knicks) on the NBA package. Cost is $99 which is pretty good.

Its great for college sports and all arount tv. The only problem is it is a little disjointed by having two kinds of viewing options(blue and orange). Sling blue you can stream the same channel on multiple devices plus you can record and store everthing on your cloud dvr but with sling orange you can only stream channels on one device and you cant record at all. I think sling is a little better than directv when it comes to usability. Directv is a little clunky to me.

This is probably what I’m gonna do this time. I already have NBATV, ESPN, TNT, TBS, SportsSouth ATL and WGN Chicago.

I love this service. The Knicks were blacked out for me on Spectrum tonight. I used Fubo's cloud dvr to tape tonight's game. I don't know of another service that offers two msg channels.
