Scott is quoting a source inside E* who tells him that E* is very close to inking a deal with YES. It makes sense with the Extra Innings offering.... If you want to charge for MLB baseball you BETTER carry the most popular team.

Once again, full disclosure... I'm a Mets fan so it didn't hurt me to not have the Yanks, but there are a lot in my area who avoided E* because of this missing channel. The addition of this channel would now leave the NFL as the last remaining satellite exclusive for D*.

CBS-local + CBS-NY + CBS-LA = enough March Madness for me .... for free even. :)

CSTV would be a nice add, but last time I looked there programming was still a bit thin, hope they continue to add stuff.

By the way, only E* has GolTV ... and Bingo TV! :raspberry

Seems like a poor business decision at this point.

Anyone who wants YES has already switched to D* and NO ONE is likely to return after having used a Tivo.....

I've got 5 cable subscribers ready to switch once E* gets YES here in NJ.....

1 is chomping at the bit and WAS going D* but is waiting now that I told him it was likely that E* was picking it up soon....

Arbitration decision is in. Cablevision must carry YES on expanded Basic.

I don't know whether this is good or bad news..... The precedent is set that EVERYONE has to get it in "Expanded Basic" (Is this an AT120 equivalent or an AT60?)., BUT the price was lowered per subscriber to less than $2 a subscriber.

Now we'll see how Charlie reacts........

D* has it in their TotalChoice packs for subs in Yankee Territory and in Sports pack for outsite Yankee territory. Whats the E* Equivalent?

Dish Network's equivalent is America's Top 120. I have serious doubts that Dish will make it available in the Sports Pack though.
Anybody else wonder just how horrible WWE's "wrestling" is gonna get?

So if they are saying that 5+ million subscribers currently have YES outside of Cablevision, plus another 2 million cablevision subscribers, then 7 million*1.85*12= $155.4 million per year! :eek2: (My numbers might be off because I can't get back to the linked story) No wonder why the Yankees had no problem getting ARod. Plus they have huge licensing deals (T-shirts, etc) plus huge ticket prices, plus concessions...
Their payroll is certaintly not a loss leader for Steinbrenner.

Don't forget advertising revenues will increase with the subscriber increase.

Only way Icould get a box seat to a game was to find Detroit, in July, in the middle of the day, and the week.....

It sucks if you don't have season tix.

So, less than 24 hours to the Yankees opener (vs. Tampa Bay, in Tokyo, 03/30 5:00 AM EST). This would certainly be the right day to announce YES Network is available to Dish subs ... but this is one where I'll believe it when I see it.

I don't think the two games in Japan are critical, but if a deal isn't signed prior to the home opener on 04/06, I'd say the likelyhood of seeing YES on E* this year goes way way down ...

(Edit - as Satellite Guys did list this as a "rumor", I'll cut them slack on this one. I do hope the rumor turns out to be correct. :gott: )

Last year on Direc Tv I hated that whenever the Yankees were on the road Direc Tv carried the YES version of the Yankee game for every Yankee game played. No matter if the home team had there game televised on there own regional sports network. The Home Teams RSN was Blacked out and YES was always on. And I live nowhere near the Yankees home viewing area. The same went for Red Sox Games on NESN. Home or Road the Red Sox game was available on NESN.

Do you get both versions of some games in extra innings?

No. If For Example the Yankees were playing a game on the Road in Chicago. If the White Sox-Yankees game was available on Fox Sports Net Chicago and YES Network. Fox Sports Net Chicago would be blacked out for the entire country (Except Chicago) And Everyone else was forced to watch the game on YES. The Exact same Scenario for Boston Red Sox Road Games on NESN. Last year this happend and I am wondering if the same is going to happen again this baseball season. We'll find out in about a week when the season starts.

What sucks is that even though we don't get YES in the NY area on Dish, the ESPN2 feed is blacked out here on Dish (for this mornings Yankee opener in Japan). WTF?
