Sorry DIRECTV NOW Did Not Add MSG (For Most Subscribers)




Fans of soccer watching match

Fans of soccer watching matchTongiht DIRECTV NOW sent out a mass email to all subscribers saying that MSG was added to DIRECTV NOW. Sadly Cord Cutters News can confirm that MSG was not added to DIRECTV NOW for most subscribers.

Cord Cutters News has confirmed with an AT&T rep that only DIRECTV NOW subscribers with plans of Just Right or higher that live in parts of the North East have MSG. MSG is a regional sports network in the greater New York area and is similar to FOX Sports and NBC Sports regional channels.

If you live in the greater New York state area you should have access to MSG and MSG+. As best we can tell MSG and MSG+ was active nationwide for at least 48 hours if not longer. Sometime late last weekend or early this week AT&T pulled the channels from their DIRECTV NOW and moved it to the greater New York state area.

What happened? Well, it looks like someone screwed up and sent the email to all DIRECTV NOW subscribers. We have confirmed with readers in the greater New York City area that they do have MSG networks but at this time DIRECT NOW’s website and reps say it is not available on DIRECTV NOW.

To help figure out what is happening we have reached out to AT&T for comment and will update this post when we learn more.

Do you have MSG and MSG+ on DIRECTV NOW? Leave us a comment and let us know what area you have the networks in.
