YES Network is a regional pay-TV sports network in USA. Launched in 2002, it is part of Fox Sports Networks and is available nationwide. Its name is in fact an abbreviation of ‘Yankee Entertainment and Sports Network’.
Within its first 20 years in operation, YES received well over 100 New York Emmy Awards in recognition for its quality of work on television. It has also been one of the most watched regional sports networks in the United States.
YES Network covers live games from Major League Baseball side New York Yankees, NBA team Brooklyn Nets and Major League Soccer club New York City FC. In 2014, the broadcaster announced a multi-year agreement with NYCFC, which gave them the rights to telecast the MLS club’s home and away matches on US TV.
