    Yes Network For Cord Cutters?

    OK. Having just wasted a few hours searching, I figure I come here to the experts.

    How the F do you get access to the Yes Network as a cord cutter? I am in unfortunate situation of needing to have Formfactor, ABC, NBC, and HGTV for my wife. I pretty much require only YES and ESPN. Anyone solved this riddle?

    Wonder how long until YES comes out with a pureplay subscription model.

    Yeah wouldn't bother asking if I hadn't at least punched into google! Thanks for sharing, I do appreciate the response. And yeah, we're in NJ, so definitely in the footprint.

    I've taken 6 separate cracks at this. Try figuring out what channels you can get on Sling TV, and see how long it takes you to want to light your computer screen on fire. Someone needs to create the metasearch of OTT. And then give me a 2% trailer for the idea.

    Seriously. What are you waiting for. Do it.

    Re: Yes Network For Cord Cutters?

    Alright: Answer is Hulu w/TV.

    $30 per month for 100mps internet (xFinity) and $40 per month for Hulu w/ all of these channels:

    https://www.hulu.com/live-tv

    If you're in YES footprint, that includes YES.

    And for $5 per month you get HBO (first 6 months, then boosted to $15).

    Ok, Hulu, OK.

    Yeah, that was my conclusion as well, but I haven't done it, yet..... DirecTV keeps going up so maybe this summer after I empty the DVRs. Keep us posted. It would be nice to have a cordcutter's thread active on here.

    Anybody out there done it???

    I don't think you can get games through Hulu, though. (I could be wrong). I think you have to be a YES subscriber to cable in order to get access to in-market streaming through FOX Sports Go.

    I switched from SLING TV to Directv Now a couple of weeks ago. Both have YES the latter gets the edge due to their channel lineup being better. You also get the ESPN channels, and other sports channels that either SLING doesn't offer or they offer seperate sports package you have to pay extra for.

    I just dropped Spectrum for Hulu Live and it has YES as a live network. Watched the game last night with no issues.

    @MaximMan we have a pretty detailed thread on this same subject, give it a look.

    http://www.nyyfansforum.com/showthre...ming-sans-FiOS

    I have YouTube TV and it's been more than enough for me. Includes YES and FS1 too. Only thing I don't have is PIX11 so when we are playing on there, I have to use other means to watch.

    Dubiously so, but yes. Looks like the posts mentioning how went missing though.

    Fortunately the only way I've found to do so is stream through MLB.TV (T-Mobile Tuesday offer) and use Hola, the Google Chrome extension that masks your browsing VPN.

    There’s a less than legal way. I won’t post the link because of that, but search MLB Streams on a site that rhymes with eddit.

    I'll second this. DirectTV Now has been fantastic since I got it a few months ago. Much better buy for your $$ than Sling, IMO.

    One of the few good things about living on the west coast is getting access to the Yankees through MLB.TV. In terms of cord cutting: Direct TV now has had a 3 month $10 per month trial going on that I have been using, which is really nice.
