Sabres in HD now available to FiOS viewers

Just in time for tonight’s Buffalo Sabres game, the Madison Square Garden has turned the switch to make its high-definition feeds available to Verizon FiOS viewers.

MSG Network’s ownership and Verizon had been in a legal battle over the HD feeds of MSG programming, which the sports network maintained it should not be required to provide to “phone companies” that compete with cable TV providers. The Federal Communications Commission ruled in Verizon’s favor on that issue, and this week a three-judge panel refused to grant MSG a stay of the FCC ruling.

Tonight’s Sabres game versus Toronto starts at 7:30. Verizon FiOS viewers will find the MSG HD broadcast on Channel 577.
