Watching baseball on television is a favorite American pastime -- especially if you enjoy seeing the most celebrated team in the history of the sport. As of 2010, the New York Yankees have appeared in 40 World Series, clinched the title in 27 times and boast 22 Most Valuable Player awards -- from Babe Ruth to Alex Rodriguez. Getting New York Yankees games on Comcast cable is a fairly straightforward process -- especially if you live in the New York metropolitan area.

Subscribe to a basic cable package with Comcast. Tell the Comcast representative you require a package that includes the Yankees Entertainment Network (YES) channel if you live in the New York metropolitan area. The YES channel airs all regular-season Yankees games -- except for those airing on network or other cable channels.

Visit the YES website. Move the cursor over the "YES Shows" icon on the homepage menu bar. Scroll down to the "YES Channel Finder" tab and click it. Enter your location in the first prompt. Select Comcast as your network carrier in the second prompt. Choose your service area. Read the channel listings provided for you by the channel finder.

Visit the Comcast website to subscribe to a sports entertainment package if you do not live in the New York metropolitan area and wish to view every Yankees regular-season game. Move the cursor over the "Programming" icon on the homepage menu bar. Click on the "Sports” tab. Scroll down the page and read the MLB Extra Innings package information. Call a Comcast representative at the number provided and sign up if the package is right for you.
