The YES Network and Amazon Prime have made a deal to air 21 New York Yankees games live on Amazon Prime Video. The first Yankees game on Prime Video is scheduled for Friday, April 17, when the Yankees host the Reds at 7 p.m. ET.

Amazon Prime subscribers in the New York, Connecticut, Northeast Pennsylvania, and North and central New Jersey areas will have access to all of the 21 games, according to a press release from YES Network.

Yankees games on Prime Video will feature Amazon’s exclusive X-Ray technology, which allows fans streaming on Android, iOS mobile and Fire TV to access live in-game stats, team and player details, and real-time play-by-play information as they watch. The Prime Video app is available on smart TVs, mobile devices, Fire TV, Fire tablet, Apple TV, Chromecast, game consoles, Comcast X1 or from the web.

“We understand that fans are consuming content in a variety of different ways, and we believe our unique partnership with Amazon represents an exciting development in the realm of live sports,” said Hal Steinbrenner, CEO, Yankee Global Enterprises. “We are committed to exploring new ideas and delivering an array of top-quality viewing options, as well as accompanying new innovations, such as Amazon’s X-Ray technology feature, which will make in-game stats, team and player details, and play-by-play information readily accessible in real-time during the games on Prime Video.”

“We are always looking for ways to enhance the value of a Prime membership for our customers, and we believe Yankees fans are going to love having a selection of games on Prime Video this season,” said Marie Donoghue, vice president of Global Sports Video at Amazon. “We want to give Prime members access to the broadest selection of content across the broadest number of devices, and this deal gives Prime Video the opportunity to work with the top regional sports network in America and one of the most beloved franchises in all of sports.”

“We are excited about teaming up with the New York Yankees and Amazon to make these 21 over-the-air games available through Prime Video,” said Jon Litner, CEO, YES Network. “As consumption habits among Yankees fans continue to evolve, we’re embracing new and innovative technologies to enhance the viewer experience.”
