If you’re one of the 900,000 fans with Comcast, then Yankees games will soon be on your television.
Comcast is slated to start carrying the YES Network again in April while a second source with the company added early April. They weren’t able to give a specific day since both sides haven’t finalized a date yet.
Comcast has been without the YES Network since November 2015, meaning fans missed the entire 2016 Yankees campaign. The first YES Network game is tomorrow against the Philadelphia Phillies at 1:05 p.m., and the first regular season game is on April 2nd at 1:05 p.m. against the Tampa Bay Rays.
The first game not broadcast on YES will be on April 16, which is an ESPN Sunday night game.
The Yankees and Comcast for a time were in an ugly war, which led to the Yankees telling their fans to either switch cable providers. The Yankees either used signs plastered around New York City or ads using public figures such as Alex Rodriguez and Michael Kay.
Both sides came to an agreement in early January, however Comcast decided to hold off on distribution until after the Brooklyn Nets basketball season was over. The Nets abysmal ratings on the network were to blame for Comcast’s decision.
