Comcast this morning returned the Yes Network to its lineup in three states, some 16 months after it was pulled due to a fee fight between the companies.

YES, which airs games from the New York Yankees and the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets, made peace with Comcast earlier this year. But the companies decided not to return the channel to the cable operator’s service until today, three days before the opening of the 2017 Major League Baseball season.

Comcast has roughly 900,000 subscribers in Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania who receive the YES Network and can now watch the Yankees and Nets games without blackout.

During the dispute, the cable operator asserted in a statement that the Yes Network is lowly-rated and consequently not worth the fees it was demanding. And the Yes Network launched a web site which periodically blamed Comcast for a host of unsavory activities.

However, the statement, and web site, are now long forgotten, and it’s time for some Yankee baseball.
