Verizon and YES Network reached a multi-year agreement to broadcast the regional sports programming channel to FiOS TV subscribers. FiOS customers with the Extreme HD package will get YES HD in high-definition throughout all markets.
Yes Network is the first regional sports network to be available nationwide through FiOS TV. The network provides coverage of New York Yankees and New Jersey Nets games, as well as original programming and regional sports coverage.
“The Yankees have arguably the largest and most widespread fan base of any sports team in the country,” said Ray Hopkins, COO of the YES Network. “Our agreement with Verizon ensures that the multitude of Yankees fans throughout the nation can share in the pinstripes experience through a broad variety of Yankees programming.”
YES Network can be found on Channel 576 in the network’s home markets, and Channel 595 outside the home markets.
“YES programming is available on Channel 595 to Extreme HD subscribers outside of YES’ home markets throughout New York state and in northern and central New Jersey. New York Yankees and New Jersey Nets games will not be available to these subscribers; instead, they will receive substitute YES programming.”
