Why are some programs on the YES Network not available to me?


Due to agreements between the YES Network and Major League Baseball (MLB), YES does not have the rights to deliver certain MLB-licensed programming to customers who live outside the YES network's home market. This programming includes New York Yankees Encore games, Yankeeography, Yankees Classics, Yankees Magazine, and This Week in Baseball, among others.

So if you live outside the YES Network's home market and you get YES through either the PREMIER package or SPORTS PACK, you will be blacked out from these programs. But you can still enjoy other great YES programs, including The Mike Francesca Show, CenterStage, Pre/Post Game Show, YES Network Magazine, college sports, and more.
