I can't believe that MSNBC is not offered, does Rupurt Murdoch own Verizon?

Verizon should check the viewership numbers for Olberman and Maddow. Ditch the FOX crap and get some truthful news.

Where are you located?

I can watch it here in the Gulf Coast region (Florida) - Channel 103.

MSNBC has an exclusive carriage rights deal with Cablevision in NY and NJ. It has nothing to do with Verizon.

And I think the contract goes until sometime in 2010. After that as long as they dont renew it fios should get it too. {please keep it relevant}

Thanks for the info everyone. I am in the liberal media elite state of NY.
Wow I didn't think MSNBC would be that short-sighted to sign such an agreement.
Meet the Press, which is still shown on regular NBC sucks now without Tim Russert.
I guess I'll have to be satisfied with the Sunday Times until 2010,

And with all the liberal spoutings on MSNBC, very little of which is based in fact, you can have mine...

I have MSNBC and used to be a fan until Matthews, Maddow and Olberman took over...


Without Tim Russert, there is no intelligence...just factless ranting...

If you want the truth and UNBIASED facts, you can still watch "Hannity&Colmes" on Fox.  Hahahahaha!

Whatever your political leanings - it is terrible that FIOS does not offer MSNBC in New York.  It certainly wasn't mentioned when I was signing up.  it would be nice if they gave customers an update - and efforts should b made to negotiate an early termination of the exclusivity rights with Cablevision.  MSG in hi-def would be nice also - but that is probably a longshot.
