Not sure if this falls into a thread of its own or its suited for an OT thread buuut.

I'm trying to find the best deal possible for my apt (in queens) that is NOT time warner cable..I won't go into detail on why, but thats just not an option atm. Anyway, the problem is, apperently my neighborhood is a complete dead zone when it comes to other companies not named TWC. Some have TV but no internet, Others have "ok" internet but horrid channel line-ups...The best possible thing i've ran into is Dish Network..but they don't have MSG Network which angers me greatly

TL;DR : any of you guys know a good cable + internet company for queens (near LIC) that DOES carry MSG? RCN, Verizon, cablevision/optimum are all out according to them.

My buddy has seen it 3 times. Where do you people find the money to watch so many movies? I've run out of people to mug.

Never get Dish Network. They lose every channel that matters.

If rain and snow didn't **** up the reception, it would be better than Cablevision.

Might be close to a strike, even if there isn't a formal one at this point work will be slowed until a new deal is reached.

Reading up internet speeds online..why does it seem like every company except time warner has god awful speeds? 1.0mbps...1.5mbps...15mbps(max) for verizon..time warner's minimum is 10mbps i believe, Is there seriously no legit internet source out there except for TWC?

American cable providers are so confusing from what I've heard from you guys
Don't get me wrong, here in Vancouver, it's literally picking between awful and awfuller and over paying for said service. Be happy with what you get

Yeah, UM is crazy expensive for out of state students. Your lucky pretty much every single one of your teams is really good. Basketball, football, hockey.

I just got back from summer classes less than a week ago and I loved it. The campus is beautiful and the student body and school pride is what really sold me on the school. I wouldn't recommend going to visit this month though. They're doing a ton of construction and everything is being torn apart and most of the campus is closed off. If you do go, just know its like 100x nicer without the construction. I'd recommend going to visit in the fall and going to catch a basketball game after.

We can catch some Ranger-Flyer games if you do wind up going to Nova next year.

I'm not sure if this is everywhere or just in NY, but you can't choose between cable providers here. There is a Cablevision territory and a Time Warner territory. Things like satellite (Dish or DirecTV) or whatever the hell Verizon FiOS would be characterized as, anyone could get if it's available in their neighborhood. Pretty simple.

Not to be disrespectful at all, but school pride has always been very superficial to me. I know some people think it is great, but I just don't get the same vibe.

There isn't FiOS in my area.

It's literally Cablevision or DirecTV/Dish.

IDK about you but I'd rather go to a game where the stadium is packed rather than empty
