How to watch YES Network live without cable


Here’s how to live stream YES Network on Apple TV, Roku or an iPhone

There are a half dozen ways to watch YES Network live without cable – and pay a lot less for it, too.

Not too long ago, you used to have to pay a cable company like Comcast or Spectrum to watch the New York Yankees or Brooklyn Nets games at home. Now you can find a YES Network live steam on platforms like
Hulu with Live TV and AT&T TV Now.

My favorite option? That’s Hulu with Live TV, which gives you 65+ channels.

Picking the right live streaming option will depend on where you live, and what you want for other channels.

If you live in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey or Pennsylvania, then you’ll want to look over this guide to consider your options.

My pick might not make the most sense for you personally. So here is a breakdown of all of your choices. 

What do I need to live stream YES Network?

Getting started with live streaming is really simple. If you already own a Roku, Apple TV or even a computer, you have the equipment you need to cut the cord and live stream a Yankees game on your TV. You’ll just need to do a free trial of a live TV streaming service to see if it works well where you live.

You may hear people crow about paying too much for Internet once they cancel cable. Do yourself a favor. Skip becoming part of amateur hour. There are a number of proven methods for getting a decently priced Internet subscription. (I’m paying $45 per month for Internet. Last year, I paid $35.)

Read my guide about how to get Internet without cable. You’ll quickly learn how to negotiate a lower price than what’s being offered to you by your local Internet service provider.

Hulu with Live TV: Watch YES Network without cable

Hulu with Live TV carries the YES Network as part of a 65+ channel lineup for $54.99 per month.

A&E, Cartoon Network, Viceland and Travel Channel are included along with ESPN and CBS Sports Network. Subscribers get 50 hours of Cloud DVR and you’ll be able to stream on up to two devices at once. This live streaming service supports live streaming on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Xbox One.

Here’s why I like Hulu with Live TV so much lately. Aside from the live channels, you’ll get access to all the on-demand TV shows, movies and Hulu Originals that’s in Hulu’s library. Yep, that’s the same library that people pay $5.99 per month for. So you’re getting a lot of movies and TV shows and paying about the same as other live TV streaming services. 

Look over Hulu’s Live TV channel lineup because it might be the best deal if you already subscribe to Hulu on-demand. 

AT&T TV Now: Watch YES Network Live Stream Online

To get the YES Network on AT&T TV Now, you’ll have to subscribe to the Max bundle for $80 per month. That will get you 60+ channels, including YES Network if you live in New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. To be sure that YES Network is offered in your zip code, AT&T TV Now has a handy search engine tool. Just enter your zip code and you’ll see all regional sports networks in your area.

The Max channel bundle is not the cheapest option. Extra sports channels, HBO and networks such as TNT and TBS are part of the channel lineup.

Try out AT&T TV Now free for 7-days. You’re not obligated to keep the service after that, and you can easily cancel online.

Is YES Network on Sling TV?

No. You used to be able to live stream Yes Network with a Sling TV subscription. But due to a contract dispute, all Fox Regional Sports networks were removed from Sling TV. 

That’s too bad because when Comcast stopped carrying YES Network in Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania back in 2016, Sling TV came in and offered the network. A similar rift just happened between fuboTV and the owners of YES Network. 

Can I use the FOX Sports Go app to watch Yankees games?

If you sign up for Hulu with Live TV, or AT&T TV Now, there’s a chance you’ll be able to use the FOX Sports Go app as a backup to watch in-market Yankees games.

Ideally, if you’re subscribing to say, Hulu Live, then you’ll want to watch the game on their app. But let’s say a couple of other people in your household are already using the two live steams to watch other shows. Now what? The FOX Sports Go app might be your savior. Apps are also great to use when you’re away from home and want to watch some live sports. 

Keep in mind, access to YES Network within the FOX Sports Go app will depend on where you live.

What’s the best way to live stream YES Network without cable?

Hulu with Live TV is the best option if you want ESPN, ESPN2 and local channels like NBC, along with FS1, FS2 and NBCSN. Subscribers get unlimited access to Hulu’s on-demand library, including Hulu Originals like “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “The Path.” 

You can check out the Hulu with Live TV channel lineup to see if its a good fit.

  1. if you get MLB at bat and are a student or ex military you can subscribe to a $75.00 per year rate and that gets you most Yes network Yankee TV and Radio broadcasts . You also can get most other team broadcasts home and away. Comes to about $7.50 per month. Non student is about $100.00 per year. Best MLB baseball deal out there bar none!!!

  2. Still haven’t found a place in Delaware, where I get the full channel of YES. I do get it now with Verizon, but I’ve had to pay an extra $50 just to get this channel, along with other channels, but my YES channel blackouts all of the games.

    • It depends on where you live. Keep in mind, YES Network is a regional network. Also with Vue in particular, you should double check that it has your correct zip code listed. When I had Vue, sometimes it would switch zip codes on its own, and carve out local channels that should be included in your subscription.

  3. But if you get sling for the whole baseball season, it isn’t cheaper. 6 months of baseball would be more than the baseball package for all teams. Now, you definitely get more for your money with sling for six months, but if you’re just trying to watch the Yankees play all games I feel like the better option would be the baseball package.

  4. We had Sling last year exclusively for the YES Network. Cancelled last fall and restarted it a few weeks ago. No YES Network on either my Roku or my AppleTV. Multiple calls to customer service. They agree I should have YES per my zip code and IP address. They have been unable to fix the issue and refuse to refund my money. I would stay away from Sling if all you are wanting it for is YES.
