The games will come at no additional cost to existing prime members within Yankee territory, which includes New York, Connecticut, northern Pennsylvania and northern and central New Jersey.
If having access to the Yankees through streaming isn’t exciting enough in the age of backout restrictions, Amazon announced they will be testing out some new technology during the games.
Amazon calls their new and exclusive sports streaming technology X-Ray, which will provide viewers with real time in game stats, play by play information and more right on their screens. In addition, Amazon Prime plans to have a pre-game show before every game featuring fan favorite YES Network personalities.
Viewers can watch the Prime games from the comfort of their own home or pretty much anywhere else considering the games will be compatible with any on-the-go device.
If you don’t use Prime, YES will still produce the games and send them out through their on-air partners, including Pix11.
The first Amazon Prime Yankees game will air on April 18 against the Tampa Bay Rays. The remainder of the 20 games span though September with the following schedule:
