According to Neil Best, who has been spearheading the media push to get SNY to add closed captioning, just announced that the network will begin adding captioning to games on May 1.
Effective May 1 (when the Mets visit the Phillies), SNY plans to offer closed captioning - for Mets games only.
It is a belated move three-plus seasons after the network launched, and it would have been nice to have all programming captioned.
But it is much better than nothing, and will serve as a bridge to March 16, 2010, when FCC rules will require the network to be all-captioned.
I know many people who will be very happy to read this news.
