Thanks to AVS member DTV TiVo Dealer for breaking this info first at AVS.

Thanks to AVS moderator fredfa for originally posting this story.
Pinstripes in High-Def

By Anne Becker Broadcasting & Cable

YES, the New York Yankees' network, will televise seventy 2005 regular-season games in high definition, including Sunday night's season-opening game against the Red Sox.

The HD lineup includes all 64 home games, five road games versus the Red Sox and one road game against the Mets. The network recently signed carriage agreements for the HD games with Comcast, which will air them on INHD2, and DirecTV.

That still leaves most of New York City without YES' HD offerings since Manhattan is covered by Time Warner.

The YES Network is available to viewers in New York, Connecticut, parts of New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, and airs Yankees, Nets and other pro and college games.

In all fairness, Ken H, DTV TiVo Dealer (Robert) posted basically this information (from a D* source) two weeks ago. This was just the first reporting of that info I have found.
But your Yankees schedule is great!
There are even seven games for us National League fans to watch!

Interesting. Have they changed the # of games played this season? With a 162 game schedule, that results in 81 home games.

Slightly different take, including the added bit of information that deals with other cable carriers are under negotiation. What that means in terms of whether or not Cablevision or TWC will ever see this channel, who can say?

YES Network to Air Yankees in HD
March 31, 2005
By John Consoli

The Yankees Entertainment & Sports Network (YES) will televise 70 New
York Yankees 2005 regular-season games in high definition, beginning
with Sunday's game against the Boston Red Sox.

Of the 70 games televised in HD, 64 will be Yankees home games. YES has
signed agreements with cable operator Comcast and satellite provider
DirecTV for carriage of the Yankees HDTV games, and the network is also
negotiating HD carriage deals with other cable operators in the New
York metropolitan area.

For Comcast subscribers, YES HD telecasts will be seen on INHD2
(Channel 207). For DirecTV subscribers, the HD telecasts will be seen
on Channel 94.

Can't wait to see what YES has been cooking up for us. It's nice to be able to see Yanks vs. Soxs games in HD and NOT be blacked out. Hopefully this will also lead to some more RSNs showing some HD baseball on D* this season.

I think it opens the door. Who needs ESPN?

I think those of us outside of the broadcast area will know the answer to this question right about the time the game starts on Sunday...

I would not expect a definitave answer any sooner than that...

D's* phones must be ringing off the hook with questions..lol

Im not gonna bother...those CSR's know nothing...

I am a D* subscriber and am not understanding where these games will appear and whether I will have to pay for them. Anyone have a channel? Do I have to subscribe to the sports package to get it?

For sure, if you are in the yankees home market and get YES in Sd, then you'll also get the HD versions of the games in HD on channel 94.

Nothing official about people not in the Yankee's market being able to see these games

We may not even know then since ESPN has exclusive rights to Sunday night games and they won't be in the EI package. We may have to wait until Tuesday afternoon. I am betting the games are in the package (based on D*'s carrying of some of the HD games in League Pass) and plan to sign up in time to get the Early Bird special after a 3-year hiatus.

YES appears to have rights to Sundays game also..

At least according to the info in this thread...

I think theres a real good chance it will show up an part of EI package, but I doubt there will be any announcements...

(I guess other person asked the similar question in that closed thread.)

I am in the market of NYC in D*, in the market of Philly in Comcast. I think I can get YES HD in D*, and Philly's games in HD from Comcast.

But, can I get YES HD (INHD2, channel 207) from Comcast?

Thanks.

Just read a posting on the albanyhdtv.com Web site that Time Warner in Albany will be carrying YES HD starting Friday, and in fact the channel is already up and promoting the service. I'm hoping that it's true and it applies to Time Warner throughought all of New York state, me being down in HDTV-started Elmira.

'

That would be nice, but given the sparsity of the FSN telecasts on the 90's for national carriage, I wouldn't count on it. I know somebody once posted a site that listed the FSN's that may receive some national HD exposure (anyone recall?); at that time FoxSports Bay Area was not among them. Too bad considering almost all the Giants home games and many away games are in HD this year.

Also may be relevant to consider EI's track record when compared to NBA League PASS; namely, no OTA games on EI.

From SKY Report,

NEWS BRIEFS: DirecTV Has Red Sox/Yankees Opener in HD
DirecTV said it will air the 2005 opening-day game between the New York Yankees and World Series Champion Boston Red Sox in high-def format. The April 3 HD telecast on YES Network will be available to DirecTV HD customers in the New York DMA

Obviously the NY area subs will get YES.
As I understand it, and I could be wrong, the MLB EI people with the HD package will also get the games if they are not blacked out by the normal MLB blackout rules.
But, obviously, we shall see.
As I say, I could be wrong -- and I often am.

I'm figuring that the ONLY people who will get to see this game in HD on YES-HD will be those of us in the NYC YES Market. Why? Because isn't that the way that all this PITA HD viewing crap works? Kind of like Mavs games on Channel 95 or 96 being blacked out for those not in the Dallas DMA. And _EVERYONE_ knows that MLB (and to a great extent) the EI package makes this *just* as difficult as they possibly can for their fans.....

Also---the Sky Report post RIGHT above yours makes the comment in the last sentence that....The April 3 HD telecast on YES Network will be available to DirecTV HD customers in the New York DMA

Sunday's game is not a national exclusive for ESPN. If it was, the game wouldn't be on YES/NESN. You should have your answer Sunday.

I just had a chance to sit down and watch a Yanks-Tribe ST game I'd Tivo'd from 3/7. Michael Kay (Yankees announcer) commented that the "only way to see the Yanks-Sox game on opening day in the NYC area was on YES". I *guess* I took that to mean that conversely, for those outside the NYC area, YES would be blacked out.

I think this has been discussed in every YES HD thread. The game is on Yes for the NY market, the rest of the country the game is only available on ESPN2.

PS, I don't see any evidence of the game being broadcast in HD on D*. Nothing shows up in the 90's for Sunday night at 8.

FWIW, there's a NBA game on 95 or 96 tonight and it's not on D*'s website program guide.

We won't see the channel until its lit on Sunday.
