YES expands road HD broadcasts of Yankees
April 26, 2006
NEW YORK The YES Network (www.yesnetwork.com
), the most-watched regional sports network in the country, will provide New York Yankees fans with enhanced coverage during the 2006 season through an expanded schedule of high-definition Yankees telecasts.
The network has added seven away telecasts to its existing hi-def schedule, bringing the total number of away Yankees telecasts presented in hi-def to 34. As was the case last season, all 61 YES telecasts of home Yankees games are presented in hi-def this year. In addition, another 22 away telecasts this season will be presented in enhanced definition. YES' enhanced definition coverage is a result of the network's up-converting its standard definition productions, thus providing better audio and video quality than traditional standard definition telecasts.
Our robust Yankees HD schedule, complemented with the enhanced definition telecasts, is consistent with our efforts to bring our viewers the best experience possible, said Ray Hopkins, COO, YES Network. These telecasts, coupled with our interactive telecasts premiering in July and the new YESNetwork.com launching in June with video highlights, are examples of our using the latest technology to bring Yankees fans closer than ever to their favorite team.
