Service Electric Cablevision in Hazelton, Pa. maydrop the YES Network, the cable channel that carries all of the Bronx Bombers' games.

Timothy M. Trently, division manager for Service Electric Cablevision, said if no agreement is reached with the network it will be removed at 11:59 p.m. Monday, when the company's contract with YES expires.

"It would be removed due to unreasonably high programming costs," he said. "As in all of our negotiations, our main goal is to hold down costs and retain our ability to deliver an affordable video experience to our customers."

However, Trently said if negotiations are completed successfully past the expiration of the current agreement, the channel could be added back to the cable system.

CBS Sports Network and TCN (The Comcast Network) are being added to the Classic Cable tier, and CBS On Demand will be added as a free service to all customers with a digital converter box or a digital video recorder.

"Please note, over 30 regular-season Yankees games will still be available for viewing on various networks, as well as all Yankees postseason games," Trently said.
