Cablevision users: Watch Yanks online, in-market
This marks the first live in-market streaming product in professional
sports to include games with local broadcast television deals, as Cablevision subscribers will be able to watch games live over their computers at
home or at the office, wherever they want in the YES Network territory.
I checked in with Derek Jeter on this topic recently and, even though he gets the best views of all for the Yankees’ games, the shortstop and captain seemed to think it was a good step forward and seemed interested to hear about some of the details. He certainly wasn’t surprised that the Yankees are at the forefront of new technology.
“I’m sure Yankees fans will appreciate it,” Jeter said. “You
see how they’ve always come out and supported us before this, and
everywhere we go, there are people wearing Yankees gear. Anything that
gives fans more access, it’s a positive. I think it’s great. I’m pretty
sure more teams will follow.”
