We just got down here three days ago and had the cable installed. Much to my hubby's dismay, he found out he can't watch the Yankees (unless they play the Rays).

We have Comcast and for $199.99 extra for baseball season, we are able to watch the NYY....except when they play the Rays..

It is all in the market. We are not part of that market. We are considered north Florida and we are stuck with that division of programs. During football season I would rather watch the Dolphins instead of the Jaguars but that will not be thanks to the contracts that were signed by the NFL and the local affiliates.

But paying $199 to watch the Yankees or switching to Direct TV is not in my future. I will go to the internet and just follow the scoring.

I catch the Yankees and the Giants when I can and am happy when I do.

I tried some of the local sports bars for the games but the crowds and the rowdiness turned me off.

How is it that I can watch Rays Baseball in Panama City Florida on Sunsports? Aren't they North Florida. Programming changes occur in local markets when the local market speaks up.
