    Seriously, what's a Yes Network? I get about 4,000 channels, but I don't get that one. Is it a competitor to the Oprah Network?

    Edit: Ah, I see -- it's a New York network:

    Yes, yes, Ohhhhhhh, yes!!!!

    (I'll have what she's having.)

    Assuming this is a serious question, my understanding is that it's basically the WGN (or TBS) of New York. Mike Francesca broadcast his show on that network.

    Popular station in the NY/NJ/Conn area that plays tons of NY Yankee games.

    Having an ACC game on the same station that plays one of the world's most valuable sports franchise is a great thing. I know a few people who moved from NJ/NY down to the south and rigged their satellite dish so they could get YES to watch Yankee games.

    Hey I get that channel! It's mostly "Yankeeography" and stuff about Arsenal FC.

    It's the network that gives the Yankees billions to spend on the most expensive players.
    All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

    Yankee Entertainment and Sport Network. Steinbrenner started it to generate revenue for the Yanks. The Brooklyn Nets are part owners, and provide winter programming.

    Other filler programming includes "Dating with Derek" and "A-Rod the A-Hole".

    Seriously, there isn't any NY based regional sports network with more market penetration, given the popularity of the Yankees. The Big East was on SNY, which is Mets/Jets based. MSG was also an option, Knicks/Rangers/Devils based.

    YES has great coverage all over Ny state, NJ, Conn, and into Penn and NEngland.

    This is a good get for the ACC.

    BCS level college football is a resource war, not a morality play.
