YONKERS -

Hudson Valley cable subscribers can watch tomorrow night's Yankees' playoff game on ESPN as scheduled.

Disney has reached a tentative agreement with Altice USA , the owner of the Optimum cable system, to avert a blackout of ESPN, WABC-TV New York and other Disney-owned channels.

The two sides have negotiated how much Altice USA will pay to carry channels owned by Disney.

Optimum is owned by Bethpage-based Altice USA, which is also the parent company of News 12.
