    I had sent an email to Dish asking a few Yes questions, however nothing was new in there reply except for this part.

    YES is to be carried locally (in the DMA) and not nationally.

    Below is part of an e-mail I received from Dish today.

    "Thank you for your email. Dish Network was at one point in the decision not to continue negations due to pricing with YES network. We were have however made headway and plan to re-enter into contract negotiations. In the event Dish Network is able to successfully negotiate a contract to offer YES Network, please note that distribution of the service will be limited to the Yankees territory (New York, Connecticut, Northern New Jersey and NortheasternPennsylvania). The same is true with DirecTV or the cable systems."
