Yankee YES Network

YES Network which as you should already know is the New York Yankees cable channel, and it is now joining the streaming game. And just ahead of MLB Opening Day on Thursday, the network announced that it is now offering a direct-to-consumer streaming option for its local fans who want to watch games without getting to sign up for a cable or a satellite package.

The new option will be priced at $25 per month if purchased on a monthly subscription or $240 if it is purchased annually. And as part of a special launch promotion that gets to run through April 30, YES will be offering the service at a discounted rate of $20 per month all through to the end of 2023 or $200 per annum.

How the New Streaming Option Works

And once signed up on the platform, fans will then be able to watch games and other YES programming through the network’s website or its YES app in question, which is available on iOS, Android, Samsung TVs, and other smart TV platforms including Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV as well as Google TV.

The YES Network in addition to Yankees games will also broadcast games for the Brooklyn Nets of the NBA as well as the WNBA’s New York Liberty. The network states that its new streaming option will reportedly be available in its “regional coverage territory,” which is made up of New York State, Connecticut, northeastern Pennsylvania, as well as north and central New Jersey.

The Effect of the Move by YES

The move by YES marks the latest major regional sports network to offer an option to cord-cutters who simply want to watch their local teams without getting to provide for a pricey cable, satellite, or streaming TV package. The new option as you should know also comes amid a continued rise in cord-cutting and turmoil among regional sports networks.

Diamond Sports Group Recently Filed For Bankruptcy

Diamond Sports Group, which is the owner of Bally’s Sports regional sports networks and airs the local games for 42 teams across MLB, NBA, and NHL, in the early parts of this month, filed for bankruptcy. Warner Bros. Discovery on the other hand which broadcasts games for six teams across the three leagues on its AT&T SportsNet offering, similarly stated in the early parts of this month that it plans to exit the regional sports business.

How Much Does YES Cost

This is one very important question, YES as you should know offers its direct-to-consumer product on both a monthly and annual basis. The monthly subscription will cost users $24.99 and the annual subscription, on the other hand, costs $239.99.
