    Strange question, I know!

    Which news channels are available on the TVs at Orleans? I only ask because Mrs T is a news addict and I read somewhere that Orleans did not have cable TV. Thanks.

    Orleans has basic cable and includes CNN, MSNBC, the local stations and more that I can't remember for news options

    Since it's Boyd, perhaps they have the same ~15-20 channels that they have at the downtown properties. Not a lot of choices.

    MSS (Boyd) only has CNN & CNN Headline.
    No MSNBC
    No FOX- some might say that's a good thing:wink2:

    They have ESPN ESPN2 & ESPN News. TNT, USA, TBS, WX Channel, Cartoon Network & the local stations. That's about it. My wife gets terrible insomnia in Vegas so she knows all the channels.

    Even though it's Boyd, Orleans could be different? MSS is probably worst case scenario.
