Re: YES Network

No YES Network.  Big Yankees Fan.  Most watched Channel is YES.  Will be forced to change Cable provider if contract not settled.

I see that Comcast has dropped the Yes Network. I understand that you're in business. But being a fan of the Yankees, I hope you are still negotiating to continue the Yes Network on Comcast by the spring time thank you.

I am not happy that I cannot watch the Nets game tonight.  Do you have any sollutions or recommendations?  Comcast better get this settled, or we will move to Direct TV.

Re: YES NETWORK contract expires midnight on Wed with no deal in sight...

You have all these b.s. foreign language channels for people who can't be bothered to learn the language of our country, and you're dropping the YES network. I've been a customer for over 20 years. You drop YES, I drop you! You overcharge for everything, so it can't be that you can't afford it. It's just that you want to increase your profits by a big fifth of a cent. Greedy, greedy, greedy!

YES Network

Just found out Comcast will not carry the YES network as the current contract has expired. It is my sincere hope that this issue will be resolved so the millions of viewers that enjoy the YES Netwrok can continue to do so on Comcast. I would hate to switch providers, but will if this network is not carried by Comcast. Comcast earns billions annually, the difference to the bottom line profits can not be that much to renew this station.

I agree also, on another subject , I'm a NY Yankees fan and I like Xfinety to add the YES Network.

YES Network

Last fall, we made the difficult decision to remove YES from our channel lineup due to the extraordinary demands from the YES network to carry their channel.  This increase would have resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars in additional costs to all of our customers who received YES. In order to keep costs down for all of our affected customers, we rejected YES's unreasonable fee increase and YES was dropped from our systems.  We wish this could have been avoided. Any future updates will be shared or linked to this post.

 

 

**UPDATE 03/14/2016**

**UPDATE 01/01/2017**

 

Comcast and Fox News-parent 21st Century Fox have come to terms on a new distribution agreement for Fox’s YES regional sports network, which is home to the New York Yankees.

 

 

When will YES be back on Comcast?

  • We anticipate YES will return to our customers in the NY market sometime early in the 2017 MLB regular season.
