DirecTV to Offer MSG GO Streaming App

Service available to authenticated DirecTV subs

DirecTV will offer New York sports fans the opportunity to access MSG Networks’ MSG GO live streaming and video on demand service, the companies announced Thursday.

As part of the agreement, DirecTV subscribers receiving MSG Networks as part of their subscription to the satellite service will be able to stream New York Knicks NBA games as well as New York Rangers, New Jersey Devils,, New York Islanders and Buffalo Sabres NHL games on their supported smartphone, tablet or personal computer, according to DirecTV.

Subscribers can download the free “MSG GO” app by visiting the App Store or the Google Play store. 

The deal follows a similar streaming agreement reached between MSG and Verizon this past April.

“DIRECTV customers want a simple and quick way to get the sports content they want, virtually wherever and whenever they want it,” said Chris Lauricella, AT&T Entertainment Group in a statement. “With a simple authentication, our customers will be able to enjoy MSG Networks content while on the go.”
