Via the YES Network Site -
The YES Network, the most-watched regional sports network in the country for the past six years, and Verizon, the only major provider that delivers all-digital TV service over an advanced all-fiber network straight to customers’ homes, have reached a multiyear video-on-demand agreement.
The agreement will provide Verizon’s FiOS TV digital subscribers throughout New York state and in north and central New Jersey access for the first time to telecasts of New York Yankees games and other YES programming on demand. The YES on-demand programming will be available beginning Wednesday (April 8). This makes Verizon the first distributor to offer Yankees games on demand.
In addition to YES’ Yankees telecasts, FiOS TV customers will have access to other YES programming such as the network’s Emmy Award-winning Yankees post-game shows and “Yankees On Deck” series, the Emmy-nominated “CenterStage” interview show, “The Joe Girardi Show” and “Yankees Magazine.”
Sweet…makes those 13 hours now worth it.
