AP source: Yankees buy back YES control with Amazon help

YES was owned by Yankee Global Enterprises, Goldman Sachs, Providence Equity and NJ Holdings (a company then controlled by former New Jersey Nets owners Louis Katz and Ray Chambers) when YES sold a 49 percent stake to Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. in late 2012. News Corp. split into two companies the following year, with broadcast properties spun off to 21st Century Fox.

21st Century Fox raised its stake to 80 percent in early 2014 and Yankee Global Enterprises reduced its stake from 26 percent to 20 percent in a deal that valued the network at $3.9 billion.

Disney announced in December 2017 a deal to acquire Fox, a change in control that triggered Yankee Global Enterprises right-of-first refusal to buy back the YES Network shares. Disney already owns ESPN, and to gain antitrust approval it reached an agreement with the U.S. Justice Department last June to sell the 22 regional sports networks it was acquiring.

RSNs have dropped in value with the rise in cord-cutters among consumers. The deal to invest in YES will give Amazon rights to stream the games of teams on the network within their local territories. YES broadcasts the Yankees, the NBA's New Jersey Nets and Major League Soccer's New York City FC team.

Can one like two MLB teams? History of the Yankees?

I've been an Angels fan since birth. I've always hated the Boston Red Sox, never minded the Yankees though. In light of this horrid ALCS in which we are down 3-1, my grandfather told me that my great-grandfather was a Yankees fan.

You can like as many teams as you wish, but should pick only one to be "your team" and stick with them through thick and thin.
