I can watch the Yankees again!

Last spring, I switched from Sprint TV/Internet and got FIOS internet only. I then signed up for YouTube TV, and am a member of a few other streaming services. Unfortunately, one of the channels that YouTube TV does not have is YES. So I was unable to get most of the Yankees games last year

I figured they'd work out their differences by the start of this season, but that doesn't look like it's going to happen. I thought about signing up for the MLB streaming service, MLB.TV, but it wouldn't work for me. Yes, I could watch every out of region game. But any Yankees game would be delayed.

I didn't want to switch my "cable" provider and I wasn't sure what to do. Then, a couple days ago I saw that if your "cable" service has YES then you can stream YES on your computer, tablet, or TV using a streaming device. My parents have FIOS so I contacted them.

Today, using their password information, I was able to add YES to my streaming device. Of course, there are no games on tonight, but when the games start to air I'll be ready.

You and me, both.
I loved Harry, but Thom Brennamen and Steve Stone were a very underrated broadcast team.

We dropped satellite for streaming earlier this year and now with the Cubs on their own channel (Marquee) which is NOT on YoutubeTV I have not been able to watch any games. Marquee requires you have their service via cable/satellite service in order to stream. Even when on ESPN we here in Des Moines are blacked out due to the MLB's fucked up blackout rules..

Its a moot point - with the MLB going all woke and cancelling the All-Star game in Atlanta I am done with them anyway.
