FiOS touts addition of MSG broadcasts

Via: Buffalo News

‘The timing of the addition of HD broadcasts on FiOS to coincide with the Time Warner-MSG dispute was a result of a court ruling. Verizon won a protracted legal battle against MSG for its HD feeds. A federal court ruled in favor of Verizon in November, upholding a FCC ruling, which forced MSG to negotiate with Verizon to provide HD feeds. MSG had argued that Verizon was not a broadcast company and therefore was not entitled to the HD signal to compete with cable TV providers.’
