Hello!! I was wondering if anyone heard any plans of FIOS offering SNY as part of a national feed similar to DirecTV? I live in the South NJ market but I am a huge Mets and SNY fan. I recently saw the addition to the YES network to the Sports lineup here and that gave me a little hope of receiving SNY in the future.
Is there any plans out there that might increase my hope that I can receive SNY in South Jersey. I would definately pay extra to receive it.
To my knowledge, SNY does not have national feed like YES does. The national feed of YES does not include live games or replays outside of the NY sports region, and this feed is probably sold to providers for next to nothing. The in-market version of YES is something like $2.75 per subscriber, but it has most Yankees games. Outside of this market, MLB keeps them from showing the games in order to require subscriptions to MLB Extra Innings or MLB.TV.
DirecTV offers feeds of every regional sports network since they already carry them, but they do black out "out of market" live games without a subscription to the respective packages.
Also southern NJ is in the Philadelphia sports region, which is why the NY sports networks (MSG, MSG+, SNY, in market YES) are not available there.
