Starting today, Time Warner Cable customers will be able to watch live, in-network Yankees games from their computer, according to a press release from MLB Advanced Media and the YES Network.
The service isn't free, and it is only really useful if you travel a lot within the YES Network coverage area. According to the release:
YES Network will allow eligible Time Warner Cable customers to purchase this package
and use high-speed Internet access to watch YES’ Yankees telecasts live on their computers throughout the Yankees’ entire home broadcasting territory. Customers can purchase a package of all of YES' 127 regular season Yankees telecasts for $69.95, or can pay $19.95 for any 30-day period. All games will be available in true HD.
If nothing else, this brings us a bit closer to "a la carte" cable television offerings, possible freeing us from the shackles of overpriced bundles of useless programming.
