NEW YORK -- The YES Network and Verizon are teaming up to bring eligible FiOS TV and broadband customers the opportunity to view live New York Yankees baseball games online beginning with the Friday (Aug. 14) Yankees-Mariners game on YES at 10 p.m.

As part of a multiyear agreement between Verizon and the YES Network, Verizon Internet customers who subscribe to FiOS TV and also are receiving the YES Network in-market programming as part of their TV package will be able to buy access to live, streaming coverage of Yankees games throughout the remainder of the 2009 regular season. The high-definition, online broadcasts are being offered as a package of either all the YES Yankees games through the remainder of the season for a one-time price of $29.95 or a 30-day schedule between now and the remainder of the season for $19.95.

In-market YES Network programming is available to FiOS TV customers in the New York City metropolitan area, upstate New York and portions of New Jersey.

"This broadband offering provides Verizon customers with unprecedented convenience and portability," said Ray Hopkins, COO, the YES Network. "It comes on the heels of our agreement with Verizon earlier this year, enabling Verizon FiOS TV customers to watch our Yankees telecasts and other Emmy Award-winning YES programming on demand. This is another example of our utilizing new platforms in order to bring Yankees fans closer than ever to their favorite team and players."
