The YES Network, the regional US sports channel aligned with Major League Baseball's New York Yankees, and FuboTV, the sports-focused streaming service, have reached a multi-year agreement through which Fubo will include YES in its Pro Base channel plan.

The deal launched on March 28 as the Yankees defeated the Houston Astros 5-4 in their MLB season opener.

Todd Mathers, senior vice president of content strategy and acquisition at Fubo, said: “Fubo is thrilled to bring New York Yankees and Brooklyn Nets coverage to fans in the New York City area just in time for the 2024 season."

The Nets, of basketball's NBA, are also locally covered by YES.

Mathers commented: “The addition of the YES Network to Fubo’s robust baseball offering – which is broader than any other streaming platform’s – means Yankees fans won’t miss a single pitch on YES.

“And, as Fubo is the only streaming platform to offer YES in its base plan, everyone in the family can enjoy the sports, news and entertainment content they love at an attractive price point.”

Jon Litner, chief executive of the YES Network, added: “We are excited to reach an agreement with Fubo to bring YES and our best-in-class New York Yankees and Brooklyn Nets coverage to Fubo subscribers.

“As interest in the Yankees continues to soar as we approach opening day and the team’s pursuit of its 28th World Series championship, Fubo streaming customers will now enjoy YES’ Emmy Award-winning Yankees coverage all season long.”

Fubo’s Major League Baseball (MLB) coverage includes MLB.TV, MLB Network, MLB Strike Zone, regional sports networks (such as recently announced MASN), local broadcast networks, and national sports networks ESPN and FS1.

The streaming service also has deals with MLB teams such as the Seattle Mariners, the Boston Red Sox, the Cleveland Guardians, and the St. Louis Cardinals.
