What TV Channel Broadcasts the New York Yankees in 2021?
The New York Yankees baseball games are broadcasted on the YES Network.
To access this channel within the Yankees’ local television market, you need to be a subscriber of a cable, satellite or streaming subscription service that carries the network. We’ll talk more about this later.
Some Yankees games also may be broadcasted on national television networks like ESPN. This will be subject to blackout in local markets.
How To Stream the New York Yankees in Your Local TV Market
If you live within the local television market for the New York Yankees, you’ll need to subscribe to a service that has the YES Network in order to receive access to the local broadcasts.
What TV Services Offer the Local New York Yankees Broadcast?
You should be able to access the YES Network through your local cable or satellite provider.
However, accessing the regional sports networks through a streaming TV service is more difficult. That’s because many of these networks do not have active contract agreements with streaming services to be a part of their packages.
AT&T TV is one of the only streaming TV services that offers local New York Yankees broadcasts. Pricing for the necessary subscription level is a steep $84.99 per month.
If you’re hoping to stream the Yankees on one of the following services, you’re out of luck. These streaming services do not have access to the Yankees in 2021:
- YouTube TV
- Hulu + Live TV
- Sling TV
What Is the Local TV Market for the New York Yankees?
The local market for the New York Yankees includes portions of the following states:
- New York
- New Jersey
Here’s an approximated map of local markets from Wikipedia:
Use this map to get a general idea of your local TV market for baseball purposes.
The only “official” way to know your market is to check it by ZIP code.
You can do that by checking for MLB blackouts in your ZIP code. (If you have a blackout restriction for a team, that means you’re in their local market.)
How to Watch the New York Yankees Outside the Local TV Market
If you don’t live in the areas I listed above, you’re not part of the New York Yankees’ local television market.
That means that even if you subscribe to a cable, satellite or streaming service, you’re unlikely to get access to Yankees games unless your subscription includes the YES Network.
Subscribe to MLB.TV or MLB Extra Innings
MLB.TV is Major League Baseball’s subscription service. It offers live streaming of all out-of-market baseball games. It costs $129.99 for a full season.
You can use this service to stream the New York Yankees on your favorite television device, computer, tablet or cell phone.
In addition to the live TV streams of the Yankees games, you’ll also get access to radio broadcasts, live scoring, and on-demand archives of every game played that season.
MLB Extra Innings is a subscription service you can get through your local cable or satellite provider. It, too, will give you access to all out-of-market games. Prices vary based on market and provider.
Watch National Broadcasts of Games
If you’re not willing to pay for the MLB.TV or MLB Extra Innings services, your only chance to watch New York Yankees games will be national television broadcasts.
You’re not going to be able to see the broadcast of all 162 games, but you may be able to see a handful of games through the season.
These channels have regularly scheduled Major League Baseball games each week during the 2021 season:
- ESPN family of networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN+, etc.)
- MLB Network
In order to access many of these networks, a subscription to a cable, satellite or live streaming service is necessary.
