Yankees in HD from YES on DirecTV, Comcast, TWC! - Page 5

post #121 of 1303
I believe out of NY DMA SPORTS Pack customers will also get the Yankee YES Network broadcast games in HD. Not 100% sure but most likely.

Someone out of the NY DMA who subscribes to the SPORTS Pack please post the definitive answer when the game starts.

I can't imagine ESPN, which owns the national rights to this game (and are showing in on ESPN2/ESPN2HD) would allow this.

Yeah, that's the only part I can't agree with Rob on.

All MLB is blacked out in the sports pack because you need to purchase MLB EI.

And there is no MLB EI for this game, so anyone not in the Yankees home market has to watch it on ESPN2.

No sir. The game will be available on YES in NY market, NESN in Boston market. And ESPN2 nationally. Anyone in the US that doesnt get YES or NESN will watch on ESPN2. The MLB.tv blackout is for U.S., Japan, South Korea, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

And UPN WSBK-DT 38.1 in the Boston Market (In HD)

So in other words the early bird discount is probably going to expire with no confirmation one way or the other from D*'s HD broadcast of this game.

Sigh.

Agreed in the response to this. Sports pack has never had pro sports out of market.

Shouldnt the title read "Yankees in HD from YES on DirecTV, Comcast, and Time Warner" due to the recent announcement from TW Albany?

My own Magic 8 Ball says that unless it is available to ALL TWC systems, it WON'T be available on ANY. That's the hard way to say that it would be extremely unlikely for just Albany TWC to have YES HD. Of course, TWC could sign a deal today and have all TWC systems on board, but that's not what we've read on AVS yet...

Hmmm isnt that not the case? Havent other chnnels shown up on TW systems but not on others. ESPNHD comes to mind, along with HDNET.

But are you thinking that beacuse it a regional event?

I totally agree, the maority of us will be watching SD ESPN2. That being said, D* in the past has offered a freeview of the EI package for the first week of the season.

Didnt they just buy the right to show the game? Doesnt national rights mean it must be on a channel that has close to or over 100 million viewers?

Ive never seen an exclusive (baseball) game on ESPN2 ever.

Exclusive nationally, but not in the local market. When have you seen a national ESPN2 game that was also available on another nationally available outlet? How many viewers does ESPN2 have?

ESPN does not hold the national rights to this game. If they did, it would be on ESPN2 in NY & Boston instead of YES/NESN.

This game is like any other MLB game that ESPN/ESPN2 carries that isn't "ESPN Sunday Night Baseball". There are 3 ESPN exclusive Yankees games (2 vs BOS, 1 vs NYM) this year. Tonight is not one of them.

I guess we'll find out what the deal is in about 8 hours...

I guess i didnt even understand what i was trying to say.

Never would be the answer.
post #133 of 1303
I explained earlier what I meant by national rights in this case. I meant they own exclusive rights OUTSIDE of the local markets. Maybe I am wrong. When ESPN2 shows a game, can the RSN feed be shown outside of local markets on EI? I guess I assumed that ESPN would have an exclusive outside of the local markets, except on Sunday when they have national exclusive rights.

Wow...you guys are still discussing the EI issues for Sunday...

That game is not even on the EI schedule...

Anyone outside of the NY DMA will not be watching that game in HD tonight..

And Id have to call that a guarantee....

You heard it here first...guaranteed...lol

Isnt it obvious enough since the game is not even on the EI schedule?

Lets discuss something else like TNTHD and ESPN2HD and INDHD...WE want our HD sports D*!!!!!!!!!

With only a drizzle all day and a chance of showers around 10pm I'd say you are dead wrong

I'm looking outside my window right now and it looks like its starting to clear up. No drizzle just overcast.
post #139 of 1303
Either Directv screwed up in not listing the game as an EI game or it was somehow part of the agreement to move the game from Monday to Sunday.
The former is more likely.
post #140 of 1303
This Sox fan was upset that I wouldn't be able to see opening day in HD, so on a lark I flipped through the guide and this shows up on channel 94. Do you think we will actually be able to see it??

This game was move for reasons that escape me. But if i remember it was moved sometime around when the expos were renamed to the nationals. Dont ya think they really should have been called the senators anyway?

You can see that from Arizona ?

I'm about 20 miles from the Stadium and it's not raining

Anyone notice channel 708 on their TWC-NYC guide listed as YES HD? Does this mean we might see the game tonight on Time Warner in HD after all?

Anyone know if MLB EI is cancelable? If I don't get the HD Yankee games, I don't want it! If it's not cancelable, I'll wait 'till we know for sure if the HD games will be shown and spend the extra $20.
post #147 of 1303
If it's in your guide isn't that obvious, duh...

EIGHT pages of conjecture, speculation, innuendo and rumor.

Absolutely NOTHING official from Directv.

Still says HD Specials in my guide, but maybe there's a glimmer of hope here...

With the date being April 3 in the thread title it looks like the game will be in 4:3 HD.
It took me a minute to figure out it was just the date.
