YES Network on DISH
I think I can really get some help from you guys on this issue. To many of Yankee Fans disappointment, DISH does not carry YES. I have created a petition, which I hope of getting 1,000 signatures with, that shows that many of us would like YES on DISH. Here is the URL:
Thanks for signing.

You need to petition the Yankees...not Dish. They only reason they aren't on Dish, according to many posts, is that the Yankees demand being included in one of the primary packages, (like the AT200), and will not settle for only being in the sports package or a-la-carte like all the other RSNs. They are trying to force ALL subscribers to have to pay for their channel, instead of just the Yanks fans.
While I sympathize with the Yanks fans wanting the channel, as a Mets fan (or any other team) I wouldn't want to be forced to pay for the channel in my regular package!
If you're interested, do a search...there are dozens of posts about this channel floating around.
A Houseful of Samsung TVs - 55" 8500 Series LED LCD | 32" 5500 Series LED LCD | 32" LN32A450 LCD | Dish Network 1000.4/Eastern Arc | 1 Hopper/2 Joey | SilverSensor ZHD-TV1 OTA Antennas
OK...now the Hopper's PROTECTED ICONS are making cameos on the info screen...can we PLEASE put them back where they BELONG?
But all of the FSN channels are included in the Top 200 and I don't give a sh*t about them! I have to pay for those, along with NESN, and I hate the Red Sox! I read somewhere (don't remember where) that DISH Network wanted a different price or something to carry YES, and if YES did what DISH wanted, it would void its contracts with other companies, like DirecTV, Comcast, AT&T, etc.

It also appears that YES wanted their payment based on total subs not just those able to receive YES. Local RSNs are generally included with the AT 200 BTW. I assume this guy lives in the NY area and wants the Yankees. I personally can't s
atand them but I understand his position and sympathize with him----but not the yankees.
As for who to petition why not petition them both?
Actually I'm in southern CT. A friend of mine has a small office building and would have saved about $50 per month if he switched to DISH but couldn't because the tenants needed YES Network. I was going to try to get all of the other sports networks and watch the other team's broadcast but it turns out the games are blocked out.
