Long-time readers might recall my complaining about SNY's lack of closed captioning for Mets games, and the network finally adding the service early last season.

Well, I'm happy to report that all programming on SNY now has closed captions for the hard of hearing (and for patrons of noisy sports bars).

That's wise, among other reasons because as of March 16 - the fourth anniversary of the network's launch - it is legally required to do so.
