    I have the sports pak on DirecTv, which includes the YES network and several other sports stations (MSG, ESPNU, CSTV, NESN, etc.). However, it doesn't include the Yankee games. When the game comes on, YES gets blacked out unless you pay for the MLB package. Even with the package, YES can get blacked out if the MLB package decides to use the other team's broadcast. I find that this happens most often when teams have contracts with the local Fox network, or teams like the Red Sox with NESN or the Rays with the Sunshine Network.

    The same thing happens with college basketball. If a station like MSG is carrying a college game, it gets blacked out if the same game is being carried on ESPN Game Plan. If Game Plan isn't carrying the game, the station doesn't get blacked out. I guess that DirecTv is trying to ensure that people don't backdoor the system by paying for individual stations instead of their packages.

    How could YES get blacked out on DirecTV? Also, I was under the impression that for "MLB Extra Innings" from the cable/satellite providers, YES wasn't always the channel of choice. I remember when I had this last season, if they played the Red Sox, the Extra Innings would routinely show NESN, rather than YES.

    I'd have to check around to see which channelt hat Yankee fans around the country are getting when they view Extra Innings.

    Since a satellite dish is allowed in your building, why not just get DirecTV, which carries YES?

    It really is, and to add insult to injury, I learned last night that even if I signed up for the webcasts at MLB.com, Yankees games are still blocked out for subscribers in New York. It's extremely ridiculous.

    Anyone know if the YES Network website provides live webcasts of games?

    I suck it up and pay for the MLB package. They usually carry the YES broadcast.

    Luckily since your a Yankees fan they do get alot of national exposure so you can catch them often on ESPN.

    Also John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman do an excellent job in my opinion. That's how I'll be following the Yankees this year.
