YouTube TV To Lose SNY At The End Of June


YouTube TV Sports Plus

YouTube TV currently plans to drop SportsNet New York (SNY) on July 1, 2023, removing the ability for subscribers to watch live New York Mets and New York Jets games with their current subscription.

It is not unusual for live TV providers to enter a dispute with a channel, and while some disputes are resolved, others are not, often leading to the affected channel being removed from a live TV service’s lineup.

Right now, YouTube TV has begun informing subscribers that they are due to lose access to SNY at 11:59 pm ET on June 30, 2023. Essentially, from July 1, subscribers won’t be able to watch any live content or access library content from the channel.

In addition to YouTube TV confirming the channel removal via email, SNY has started issuing its own confirmation on social media, and advising Mets and Jets fans to seek an alternative live TV provider to retain access to their teams.

For reference, some of the live TV services that do currently offer SNY to location-eligible subscribers include DirecTV Stream, Fubo, and Hulu Live TV.

YouTube has also now started issues in its own social media confirmations, stating that the reason the channel is being dropped is due to YouTube being unable “to reach a new agreement with SNY.”

While YouTube does also state that it’s “open to continuing conversations with SNY,” it does seem like this despite might have already been decided.

Barring any sudden change in negotiations, Mets and Jets fans might want to consider looking for an alternative service to watch live games on and after July 1.
