Will FIOS ever include NESN, MASN, or YES sports channels?  I have calleed VZ and the phone reps don't have an answer.

Yes is available nationally however you will only be able to get games if you are in the NY/North NJ market.

 

MASN and NESN are available depending where you live.

 

The best way to find out waht channels are available to would be here:

There would be no point in having NESN or MASN nationally just as there is none to have YES nationally because all of the sporting events carried on those networks have to blacked out outside of the regional viewing area.

The Yes Network is available on FIOS Channel 595, part of the Extreme HD Package.

 

As ChanrlesH indicated it will NOT show the games unless you are in the Yankees Local Market due to league Blackout Rules.

 

The same blackout rules would apply to  Dish and DirectTV.

There are different rules for terrestrial vs. satellite which is why D-TV can offer out of market sports and Verizon (or any other cable system) can't.

When I had DirectTV I only had access to my local sports networks, unless I paid for a Sports Subscription or a package (NFL Sunday Ticket, MLB Package, etc).

Back in 2000 I had Direct-TV (in a distibuted apartment system) and I thought they had an option to pick up a bunch of the Fox Sports channels (out of market).  Then again, it couild just be a "senior" moment Smiley Very Happy .

I want to switch from Comcast to FIOS TV, but the channel lineup does not list MASN. I live in the DC area, zip 22192. Can that be right that MASN isn't available 20 miles south of DC? That would be a show-stopper for me.

MASN (and MASN HD) is on Vz in our area on channels 77 and 577. MASN2 is on channel 1. Likewise, Comcast Sportsnet is on 76/576.
