Cord cutting and sports is tricky in the New York City TV market.  Read this if you want to cut the cord and still catch most Yankees, Mets, Giants, Jets, Knicks, Nets, Rangers, and Islanders games.

At Solid Signal, we provide accurate information so that New Yorkers like you can make an informed decision.  You need to know that most pro sports teams’ games aren’t broadcast over the air.  This is the due to agreements between the teams and several TV networks.  This makes watching pro sports on broadcast TV all but impossible.  Solid Signal provides options for cord cutters to watch their favorite teams in New York City.
