Point 1. Yes, not sure why this does not close the loophole because the CSN Philly signal is retransmitted via satellite for those few Phillies games and for 76ers and Flyers also, I believe. That means the signal is no longer terresterial only.
Point 2. Again, this ruins the MSG/Fios issue. MSG is claiming that Fios distributes via satellite. Hello.... But then again, MSG does what it wants and ignores contracts. See the Center Ice debacle.
1. The main signal that is distributed to other MSOs is not done via satellite. Verizon has a direct fiber connection. Select games being sent via satellite don't count.
2. MSG is not making any such claims. They are taking advantage of the terrestrial loophole to refuse to negotiate carriage agreements for the HD feeds of MSG and MSG+ to Verizon as well as ATT (DISH may simply be refusing to pay for them, they don't carry YES, either).
The terrestrial loophole doesn't differentiate between cable companies and DBS companies There seems to be a great deal of confusion because of the ruling that was upheld last week. It's a different ruling and only applies to programming distributed via satellite.
If the closing of the loophole is upheld and survives the probable court challenges then Cablevision and Comcast will be forced to negotiate carriage agreements with Verizon, ATT, Dish and DirecTV. Those agreements will have to be comparable to agreements with other providers and to their own internal bookkeeping.
Until that happens you're not going to see MSG or MSG+ in HD on FiOS nor will you see CSN Philly on DirecTV.
