Customers of Verizon's FiOS television service will be
able to stream live New York Yankees games in market for an additional fee. Verizon
is the second MSO to ink a deal with the Yankees' YES Network and Major League
Baseball Advanced Media, following an inaugural deal with Cablevision last
month
.

Customers that have both Verizon Internet and FiOS TV
packages can purchase the ability to stream games live online for the rest of the
regular season for $29.95, or a 30-day schedule between now and the end of the
season for $19.95.

MLB sells a live broadband video package called MLB.TV,
but the service blacks out all in-market games. The Cablevision and now Verizon
deals are the first efforts to open up in-market streaming, albeit at an added
price.
