Regional Sports Net YES Protests Cablevision’s iPad App

Apr 5, 2011  •  Post A Comment

YES, the regional sports network for the New York Yankees and New Jersey Nets, is protesting its inclusion in Cablevision’s new iPad app, reports the New York Post.

The app allows Cablevision’s 3 million customers to view about 300 networks on their iPads at home, the article says.

"Cablevision does not have the right to offer the YES Network in the manner it is doing so on the iPad, and it has been notified as such," a YES Network representative said, according to the piece.

It appears that the inclusion of YES on the app competes with separate rights sold by Major League Baseball, the piece adds.



  1. Working for DISH Network I know the clear better choice would be DISH Remote Access. You are not tied to your home network like you are with the Cablevision option. So I can watch live TV, recorded content, schedule and manage my recordings all from say the airport, or park, anywhere I have an internet connection either 34/g or WiFi.

  2. At least you admit you’re being paid by DISH for your advertisement…
