    Legal YES Streaming sans FiOS

    Hi all,

    Moving into my first apartment in a months time, and I'm weighing the options of paying for one FiOS box, or "cutting the cord" of cable and going the streaming route.

    Is there a known legal way to stream YES live as games are being played? IIRC I could on the Fox Sports app? If the one box is cheap enough, I may just get it so I don't have to worry about missing any games.

    Any info would be much appreciated .

    YouTube TV has YES. I haven't tried their service but it's tempting.

    The other option is to install a slingbox on a friends or your parents TV. One time expense of $200-250. Then you can watch whatever the other tv receives and mirror/screen share to your tv

    When Comcast didn't have YES in 2016 I had SlingTV for like $20 a month. The quality is decent enough and you can watch it on a Roku. I do believe you have to be in the viewing area.

    Is there a streaming service that has YES, SNY and MSG? Until I can find one with all 3, I can't really consider switching yet.

    Not sure about SNY, but pretty sure Direct TV Now has YES as a regional sports network and just saw a recent announcement they are adding MSG.

    thanks- good to know! Directv Now doesn't have DVR yet so can't really consider it, but really good to know for the future.

    If you are "in market", YES is available as part of "SlingTV Blue" at $25/mo. That will include major cable TV pay networks, but nothing from the Mouse House (abc/Disney/ESPN). You also get FS1 and FS2, and access to NBCSN & the NFL Network...

    They have deals for free or reduced priced Rokus, Firesticks, etc...

    I use MLB.TV and pay for the internet and the MLB.TV. I get every game. There will be a blackout if on national station like ABC and ESPN and I watch that station. I like it, never tried U Tube. Single team (NYY) is around $90. I don't get the post game coaches conference but watch it on ESPN . The nice thing is you can watch the other's team broadcast which is nice to hear the other's opinion. You have to have above 40 speed and you should have no problem, but try it first on MLB.

    Really good point: You live in Brooklyn so that may/is a blackout problem. I live in Mass so I am out of the Yankee blackout area. The only MLB.TV blackouts I get is when the games are nationally televised. This may not work for you. For example, I can't get a free pizza if the Yankees win in Mass.

    If he lives in the viewing area he'll be blacked out on MLB.tv.

    But you are probably considered "Out-of-market". If you are located in what is considered "Yankee RSN territory", you cannot watch the Yankees on MLB Extra Innings or MLB.tv...

    Game Day Audio doesn't have the same viewing / listening restrictions as the video...

    Legally, at least (cough, cough https://unlocator.com/channel/mlb-tv/ cough, cough).

    Not to take this off topic, but one of the reasons I went to Direct TV Now is because I was paying for DVRs and set top boxes I didn't need. We had cable at our primary home and vacation home that ran $300/mo. Yes, I lost DVR and also a whole bunch of channels (none of which I ever watched, and kept plenty that I would if I had time), but my aggregate monthly TV watching expense went from ~$300/mo to $35/mo, including HBO Go (must have for GoT fans). Many channels in the lineup have a 72 hour rewind capability, so you can go back a few days and stream content.

    So does Hulu+. I've been looking at their deluxe service with DVR option and no commercials. About time to cut the cord. Price of DirecTV keeps going up and the alternatives are getting better.

    So I went with YT TV. $35 a month. I was doing some more research and came around Set TV. Anyone familiar?

    https://www.setvnow.com/

    500 channels for $20 a month. Doesn't offer YES but it appears it has MLB TV if I'm reading correctly. I live in Brooklyn, would I be "blacked out" or would I get the games?

    If the price is too good to be true, it usually is.

    But besides that issue, IF MLB.tv is offered (and again, I can't imagine that subscribing to this service and getting 500 channels is cheaper, per month, than a legit MLB.tv subscription), and you are in the Yankees market, Yankees games will be blacked out.

    Agreed all the way. Seems very sketchy lol, especially with HBO, Showtime, etc offered as well!

    Likely just sticking with YT TV and calling it a day.

    FWIW, YT TV is adding MLB Network no definitive date yet but I would imagine before/by the start of the season.

    Re: Legal YES Streaming sans FiOS

    Thinking of doing this too and considering

    YouTube TV
    Hulu Live+ (leaning towards this for original programming)
    DirecTV Now (may try this for the free Apple TV 4k promotion)
    Sling TV

    Which is my best option?

    Then I'll pay about $40-50/month for Internet access and say good bye to cable for $205 per month.

    Will also keep HBOGO and Netflix

    YouTube TV has been great so far, especially now that they are adding MLB Network onto their base lineup.

    $53 a month for FiOS internet (split with my lady, so $26.50 per person)
    $35 for YT TV (again, split, so $17.50 per)
    + we have access to HBOGO, Netflix, etc from my parents provider log-in's.

    Beats the snot out of $125 a month that FiOS quoted us for internet AND t.v.

    Or you can spend $250 and buy a slingbox and put on one of your parents tvs. It will allow you to watch on any computer or mobile device. You could also then cast from your mobile device to your tv.

    the only downside is if you are watching something on the slingbox and your parents change the channel then you will see what they see. If the box is placed on a tv that is not used that much - (spare bedroom?) then the issue is fixed
