After signing a deal back in January that ended a year-long standoff between Comcast and the YES Network, the regional sports channel will officially return to the cable operator’s New York metro area customers on March 31.

Comcast dropped the network in November 2015. After several months of back and forth, the two struck a deal to return the channel on Jan. 1 as part of a broader carriage agreement with YES parent 21st Century Fox.
