MSG HD IN SOUTH JERSEY??
Goldenarmz
Newbie

I live in South Jersey (Cherry Hill area) but don't care for Philadelphia sports as I'm from NY. I got a message stating that MSG HD is comming to NJ and showed what channels they will be on. I checked but nothing is there as of yet. Was told by a verizon rep to check on the 18th. So is all of NJ getting MSG HD? If not how can I get rid on comcast sportsnet and get MSG HD? Go Knicks!!

You are in the Philadelphia sports region, so unfortunately you would have to buy the out of market packages in order to watch non-Philly sports. NJ is such a strange sports market with its proximity to two huge cities. Verizon can only provide regional sports networks based on their "home" cities, and it looks like Mercer County was the only place close to Phila to get the MSG channels.

But in NJ just what is the 'home' market? Comcast, for example, provides both NY and Philly channels in Middlesex Countyn NJ. I cannot understand why Verizon has a Belin Wall attitude about differentiating between the so-called NY market and the Philly market. This leads to weird situations such as the NY Islanders (who play way out in central Long Island being deemed the 'home' market team for central NJ - but the Philly teams (Philly is just 20 miles from the southern border of Midlesex County and the South Philly sports complex just a one hour drive down I-95) are 'out of market'. It's just crazy.

Middlesex County and a few other parts of "central" NJ are in both the Phila and NYC sports markets, and Verizon carries both CSN and the MSG channels there. Everything south is Phila only, and everything north is NY only. The regions are set by the sports leagues, and not cable providers. If you had access to MSG in Southern NJ, it would have to be like YES National on channel 595 with no live games or replays.

I, too would like to have both NY or Philly channels just like Comcast , or at least choose between Philly or NY channels.

Is there a way to just pay for msg without having to buy the nba package? Does fios sports package might include the channel?

Unfortunately, no. Outside of their home markets, only the sports leagues have the rights to sell the games.
