Re: YES network not offered in MA

YES is a regional sports network, and is only authorized to carry its flagship programming, New York Yankees baseball and Brooklyn Nets baseball, in certain territories. These territories do not include the state of Massachusetts, which belongs to the Boston Red Sox and Boston Celtics.

 

Even if the network were carried, all Yankees and Nets programming would be blacked out.

 

In order to receive this programming through Comcast or any other provider in the Boston area, you will need to subscribe to MLB Extra Innings or NBA League Pass. Note that telecasts against the Red Sox and Celtics would be blacked out, requiring you to watch those with the Boston announcers on NESN and Comcast SportsNet New England, respectively.

YES network not offered in MA

I am a new customer in the Boston area that switched from Diectv because the city in which I moved did not have high speed internet option other than Comcast. So as a new customer I just cannot understand how they cannot carry the YES network in the Boston area. All of their competitors carry this network so I find the reason for this baffling and just ridiculous. So many fans in this area would pay the extra cost to have them add this to their sport package. Comcast must highly consider doing this ASAP!!! As there is no reason today to have so many cable channels and not carry this network. Such a joke!!!!

Re: YES Network

Guess us in 179 aren't worthy of seeing any Yankees games. Shame! But we can watch all those Hispanic channels. Was looking forward to the Yes Network coming back.

Re: YES Network

I just found out that channel 254 on comcast wpix from new york which is avaliable in south jersey broadcasts live games of mets and yankees. I checked their tv guide they don't show all yankees games according to the their guide but is better than nothing. The channel is only available in SD.

Re: YES Network

State College definitely is out-of-market for the Yankees.

 

The Northeastern part of PA is in-market for the Yankees. However, I don't believe Comcast carried YES on the Williamsport, Lewisburg or Lock Haven systems before, so they wouldn't receive it now. YES will be coming back for Comcast subscribers in Scranton and Luzerne County.

 

The simple rule for what is in-market vs. out-of-market in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre market is that only things with zip codes starting in 18 have YES. 177 (Williamsport), 178 (Sunbury) and 179 (Pottsville) zip codes don't. The smaller cable companies through those areas don't carry YES either.

Re: YES Network

ComcastTed,

 

What about the Central PA area (i.e. Williamsport, State College)?  I am assuming that isn't a New York market so no YES network then?

I am seeing YES available in your area on channel 32 and in HD on channel 1254.

 

YES is included in your current level of service.

@ComcastTeds This answer is not strictly correct. As a former Comcast customer in Philadelphia, I used to receive YES Network. However, after 3+ hours on the phone today, it was disclosed to me that YES is NOT coming back to Philadelphia; it will be available in PA only in Scranton Wilkes-Barre. This is tremendously disappointing. Does Comcast have any plans to bring YES to frustrated fans in Philadelphia?


Apologies for any confusion. My answer is correct. I also spoke directly with our local programming team who confirmed that YES was not offered in your area.

 

Yankees games are available in the Philadelphia are via MLB Extra Innings.

 

We don't have any plans to bring YES into the Philadelphia television market.

Re: YES Network

Did YES in Philadelphia include live games? I cannot believe the Phillies/76ers would allow live games from another market's regional sports network.

Re: YES Network

Too be honest we pay way too much for a lot of channels we don't watch. It would be ideal to be able to pick and choose our own packages and pay accordingly. I look through the hundreds of channels I have and only regularly watch 15-20 of them.

Re: YES Network

It really doesn't matter whether Comcast offers YES or not!

 

I'm a long time Yankee Fan, now living in Southwest Florida. Since Comcast has not offered the YES Network down here, I was forced to find another option ... and I did!

 

I purchased a ROKU 3 Unit which has the MLB.TV Channel embedded. It's NOT a free channel but the cost is very affordable(There are other devices that can do this ... not to be discussed here).

 

You can elect a "single team" option for for $87.49/ year, which gives you both Spring Training and Regular Season games for THAT TEAM ... in my case the New York Yankees. (There's an option ALL TEAMS and even a monthly option, that I won't go into here).

 

To inprove the streaming, I purchased a MoCA Adapter for $99.00. This unit converts my coax  cord signal to an ethernet signal, improves the speed by almost three-fold, and eliminates buffering.

 

So now I watch the Yankeee games (Spring and Regular Season) with the "single team" rate. The only "black outs" are games covered on National Networks. Nice also is that there ar eNO COMMERCIALS!

 

If you are in the same boat, try it!

I subscribed to Sling TV as well for 20.00 a month to get the YES Network. One way or another I was not going to miss an entire season of Yankees baseball.

They won't do that à la cart thing but maybe once streaming starts catching catching on, that's how I got the Yankees last year. I streamed sling TV for 20 bucks a month

I was one of the biggest complainers when comcast dropped YES, so let me be among the 1st to thank comcast for finally coming to an agreement with the yes network.
For everyone complaining about the bill going up, it would be going up regardless, not just because of the yes channel.
Why don't you complain over the other garbage that we are forced to watch and pay for like rupaul and other shows like that.
Bottom line is that now us Yankees fans finally get to see our team. I will definitely renew my contract with comcast now.

Not happy paying for the other 150 channels I don't ever watch either. YES just happens to be one that we KNOW charges a substantial fee, just like ESPN. I'd like to see a package that drops ALL the sports programming, and I'd bet there are a lot of other people who would also appreciate such an option.
