Non-Local Yes Network ?

Did I miss something recently that said the Yes network has to block Yankeeography and some of the old game from years ago? Every time I go to watch these for the last few months it tells me that it's not available in my area.

Perhaps other games (hockey, basketball) with blackout rules ran long into the scheduled Yankeeography? That can happen, but every time for months? That sounds a bit odd.
No, the OP is right. Major League Baseball holds the overall copyright on highlights and vintage games and jealously guards its copyrithg. YES bought the rights to air the games and/or highlights only in its coverage area (that's why they call them regional sports nets) and D* is obligated to blackout the broadcasts in areas outside the YES coverage area.
See thats the thing why Yankeeography? I checked the schedule and there was no games on before it aired so I know that it wasn't a problem of overlap.
