Comcast will again carry the YES Network, ending a season-long blackout of New York Yankees games.
The YES Network will return to Comcast on March 31 and will be re-launched in the areas in which it was previously carried, with Xfinity customers will be able to watch the March 31 New York Yankees-Atlanta Braves preseason game live on YES at 7:30 p.m.
Xfinity customers who previously received YES and did not change their level of service will automatically see YES on their lineup, in most cases in its previous channel location.
"We always said that we would continue to evaluate whether there was a way to bring back the YES Network under terms that are consistent with our commitment to providing the best programming at the best possible price," Comcast said in a statement.
A complete listing of YES’ channel locations on the Xfinity programming lineup will be available on YESNetwork.com prior to the March 31 re-launch.
