I woke up yesterday morning - started crusing through the sports channels .... MUCH MUCH MUCH to my surprise I find the YES network.
OMG - Is someone screwing with me ? Or could this really be ? YES YES YES (literally) - its here. I am watching the Joe Girardi show, how awesome is this ? (this is starting off to be a great day!)
All day, I am so psyched, telling all my co-workers how they really have to switch over from COM-CRAP to fios, they have the YES Network now....., the internet is faster and more reliable, the service is cheaper and much better technology in general, why wouldnt you switch over.
I get home, all set to watch the Yanks vs the A's.... - what what what the hell ? I cant find the game ... Whats going on ? (ok maybe its on ESPN or Nationally Broadcast... NO)
What the hell ? Frantically searching the internet/google FIOS and YES and yup - I found what I was dreading - a F'ing press release from YES talking about nationally broadcasting YES to FIOS Customers - EXCEPT FOR THE GAMES!
The day turned out to be one of the worst... I know some of you out there like the additional programming that comes on the YES network, but for me, I feel like someone just took the jelly out of my donut.
Sorry all - I cant afford the $200 bucks for MLB EI, and plus most of the games are in Extra Low Def (thats what SD programming looks like on my HDTV)
FIOS / YES - please please please - work out a deal to get the Yankees games on the YES Network! I need some good news.
While I guess I am not quite as disappointed as you, yep, I was glad to find I had the YES network, quickly added it to my Favorites. Then I found out that apparently they do not show any games on the channel outside the NY/NJ area. So just as quickly I removed that channel from my Favorites, and I doubt I will watch it again. Unless.......
I too hope that sometime in the near future Verizon and the YES network can get together to show the Yankee games here in Texas, if only because I would love to be able to watch them lose

Justin - thanks for your reply....
To all - whatever reason you would like to watch the games, because you love, because you hate, because you just love baseball, or because you think its total crap the YES network is available without actual games....
call your local fios rep
write your local verizon office
call your congress-person
let them know, - YES Network needs the actual games!
Charles is correct MLB would not let one team give out their games free when all other out of town fans have to pay for the extra innings package. Direc TV has sports channels from all over the country that show games for their local teams but get blacked out because MLB will not allow them to be shown without paying for the package.
I personally tend to agree with the last post... - the channel is pretty useless to me if the games are not on. I know some people enjoy getting the Joe Girardi show, and being able to watch batting practice, but I have seen pretty much all of the Yankeeography and the rest of the filler. Batting practice might be ok to see A-Rod back in action - its cool, but again - I feel like I just go duped.
I dont think I will be watching the channel at all - another / different sports channel would have probably been the better way to go.
My guess is that this is the first step of the Yankees working with MLB to come up with their own package - since the YES network is now being broacast nationally, it wouldnt take that much for them to be able to turn on the games / turn it into a paid package.
Although I am sure MLB, IN-Demand, and all of the other players who have rights to other specific time slots (like the Saturday afternoon, and Sunday evening games will have a fit it that what the Yankees try to do)
