TV and internet in New York, NY

New York doesn’t mess around when it comes to TV and internet. Thanks in part to New York being the most densely populated city in the USA, telecoms vie for your attention with some of the fastest speeds and best TV packages and deals around.

What are the best TV companies in New York?

  • Verizon Fios—Stellar HD quality
  • DIRECTV—NFL SUNDAY TICKET
  • DISH—2-year price guarantee
  • Spectrum—Primetime shows on demand
  • RCN—On-the-go DVR access

What are the best internet providers in New York?

  • Verizon Fios—High upload and download speed
  • Spectrum—No data caps
  • Viasat—Wide-spread availability
  • RCN—Internet security included

With options for both high quality and budget entertainment packages, decision-making gets tricky. You could easily opt for Verizon Fios Home Internet’s flashy fiber tech or Spectrum’s massive on-demand TV library. But if your building doesn’t have access to landline services, your only internet choice would be Viasat—yikes.

Laggy internet is better than no internet, but the burden of buffering is rough when the building next door probably has gigabit speeds.

At least you can get your fill of sports with DIRECTV or DISH no matter where you live. Go Yankees! Or Mets, if you prefer. It doesn’t matter either way, since their games play on local channels included in either DISH or DIRECTV packages.

TV and internet deals in New York:

Spectrum: Get your current TV and internet contract bought (up to $500) when you switch to Spectrum. Conditions apply.

RCN: Get free installation and your first month free when you use the coupon code NYFREE. This deal is available on all internet packages with 12-month pricing. No contract is required, and equipment is priced separately.

Verizon Fios: Get Disney+ for a year – and then $6.99 after that.

Cable TV and internet bundles in New York

Signing up for TV and internet with the same company means you can pay fewer people less money. RCN has some of the most budget-friendly bundles available.

Top TV and internet bundles in New York

  • Verizon Fios—Waived $99 setup charge when you order online
  • Spectrum—Free HD
  • RCN—24/7 customer support

    † for 24. months. New customers only. All offers require 2-year commitment with early termination fee and eAutopay. Price includes Hopper Duo for qualifying customers.

    Tack a few add-ons to RCN’s Signature TV, and you’ll be good to go for all New York City’s favorite channels. It’s an affordable deal you can also bundle with internet, but unlike with Spectrum, you don’t have to.

    DISH’s deal also looks nice, but the price above includes STARZ for only the first three months. Then you’ll have to pay an extra $10 per month to keep that premium channel around—that’s wack.

    New York sports coverage

    You can get most of your local games from either MSG or Yes Network. But not all TV providers in New York air these networks.

    If you’re looking to stay within a budget, RCN and Spectrum have all the local sports you need in their basic packages.

    How to stream local games

    If you’ve gone the livestreaming route instead of traditional TV, you might be facing blackouts of your favorite local games. But you can legally work around annoying broadcasting rights.

    Just use a VPN to connect to a server located in an area where your local games show on cable channels. Then you can pop over to the big league channels and cheer your team on like the die-hard fan you are.

    Local Channels in New York

    Cable television not only comes with all the best sports and entertainment but local channels as well. You may be familiar with New York’s local channels through their network names or call signs:

    How to watch local channels for free
