no, but I will loose pre/post game, I wont be happy
And you are going to get them, where? Fios blacks out live YES programming. Dish doesn't have YES.
Uverse #702, with no fees... and is not Blacked out here I seen it at my parents house
Then you won't see the Yankees in HD hardly at all.
Games are live? In hd? I doubt it.
Without paying for EI? I don't think so.
I'm sorry to bump this thread, but I'm watching the Yankees pregame and Bob Lorenz was saying that the agreement that Directv has with the YES network expires on April 1 and that Directv may stop carrying the network starting April 2nd. Lorenz did give a number to call Directv to stop this. It's 1-800-DIRECTV.
I just subscribed to MLBtv today.
The feed would still be on EI.
I am in the Yes DMA. I didn't do MLBtv because of this dispute, just wanted to give it a try. Costs less than EI and I wanted to see what the PQ yeilded for myself.
This is terrible news....I need Yankee Baseball and I would definitely switch to FiOS if YES went dark on DirecTV.
I don't know what we can do about it; but I wish we knew before today.
And now DirecTV is fighting back with an overlay graphic on YES. Here's the link to their response
And one other note, the YES Yankee feed may not be on EI according to DirecTV:
"If YES Network goes dark, MLB Extra Innings and NBA League Pass customers will continue to see Yankees and Nets games but will not have access to the YES Network feed. In most instances DIRECTV will provide the opposing team's feed for these packages. "
Ahhh ok. Well won't you still miss Yankees games since you're in the Yankees DMA?
Sounds like an early April's fool :lol:
I thought the Yankee Network was ESPN, TBS, MLB Network, and FOX Network. I didn't realized they were redundant on YES network too.
I'm not at liberty to discuss the particulars.
I wish it was...
I think YESHD will still supply their feed to the MLB. That is a separate contract, and has nothing to do with DirecTV. After all, most major cable providers (such as TWC here in Southern California) have MLB Extra Innings. They won't lose their MLB EI signal just because of a dispute between two parties that they have nothing to do with.
Additionally, YESHD is available on Cable, FIOS, U-Verse in the New York area, as well as for MLB.TV online streaming, so the camera's won't stop rolling, and the show will still be produced.
If you have MLB EI, you have nothing to do with any quarrel between YES and DirecTV, you will still get the same feed through MLB EI.
I guess if YES gets removed from the lineup, that wouldn't help discount my early termination fee right? I would actually pay the fee to get out of the contract if they didn't carry YES. Though that would def be expensive.
