    A-Rod the A-Hole is good stuff...

    The take-away however is that New Yorkers actually watch YES... so ...I think this is "good news everybody."

    Both FIOS and Xfinity carry it as well.

    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.
    Very cool. I didn't realize that it was Steinbrenner's network. It's a good get, indeed.

    The big downside is live Yankee games will take precedence over live ACC football in September and October. Not sure how many Saturday afternoon games the Yankees have scheduled for September, and whether or not YES still broadcasts any games picked up by the FOX national broadcast, or any Yankee playoff games in October.

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

    What cable do you have? I'll have to dig for our list of FIOS channels. I have no idea what's on the non-high def channels. Sure hope we can get it in high def and that we get it period.

    my understanding and observations over the years show that YES, MASN, CSN, WGN, etc. are all preempted for a FOX national broadcast. Playoffs are all on other networks (TBS, ESPN these days). However, through the month of September, you are correct, the Yankees will be on as option #1.

    it's basically the Big 10 network, but there is only one "school" and it's the Yankees. think they may have added some Barclays Premier stuff recently.

    when i had fios, YES was part of the "extreme" sports package. it also included a lot of the Fox sports channels and a couple of soccer channels.
    It's not that you are ignorant, it's just that you know so much that isn't so.

    the article indicates MSG may still be in play, but hasn't announced anything yet. It seems to me the ACC is moving away from the ACC Network (Cable) concept and going for market saturation via regional networks and may focus more on the ACC Digital Network for in house network.

    so now, ESPN has sold 2nd tier rights to Raycom, Raycom has sold a bundle of that to Fox Sports, and Fox Sports has sold a portion of that bundle to YES (and MSG?). That would mean the ACC/ESPN would have to buy back games from all of those entities (at a loss, i'm sure) in order to launch the ACC Network as a cable network. Just seems less and less likely with each of these announcements (unless they are 1 year deals that renew).

    Either way, this is good for the 'cuse/ND launch in the NYC market. and maybe, just maybe, the ACC Digital Network is a better long term investment/focus than a dedicated cable channel with all of the movement towards streaming content. time will tell...
