    I don't know why I waited until this morning, but I just added MLBNHD to my quick tune.

    One could just as easily assume this would be a Dodgers, Cardinals channel given the first two days programming. No complaints about that, though.

    Eight hours per night of live coverage per night with live look ins is going to be off the chart. The NBA Channel does live look ins as well, but the technology that I see being previewed by the MLB Channel including 2 of their own cameras in every stadium looks vastly superior. Today I saw an enhancement of Willie Mays' famous catch that blew me away. I hope they're not dark during afternoon games.

    What does Berman have to do with my comment? Just because Berman isn't a baseball guy like Costas, doesn't make Costas any better.

    Costas comes off as arrogant too me...a sort of know it all. That is just my opinion.

    I do like Harold Reynolds...Of course he may have a hard time keeping his hands of some of the female staff. :eek2::lol:

    Looks good. Good to see Harold Renoylds back on tv. He is one of the best baseball analysts out there.

    Wow, this is killer news as I arrive to work today. Now I just want to go home and add this to quick tune immediately. This news will make today a really long work day.

    Funny to see the Costas and McCarver bashing. I find him mildly irritating, but most diehards I know absolutley hate him. I did a quick google search in an effort to spell him name correctly in this post and saw a website named "shut up Tim McCarver". Fascinating......

    News of this channel is the best directv news for me in quite some time. A quick look at the programming schedule looks super promising. They just need to show me the the replay of the 2004 ALCS, game 4, Sox-Yanks sooner rather than later. The wifer is not going to like this channel :D

    Bob Costas is one of the best baseball announcers ever. Never considered him coming across as a know-it-all or arrogant. Just my opinion.

    Agree on Costas, He truly loves the game and hopefully TPTB can coax him into being the PxP announcer for the Thursday night Package.

    I added it to QuickTune on all 3 of our boxes yesterday.
    A note to the DirecTV folks though...
    Could you update the QT channel logo for MLB Network sometime soon? :grin:

    I umped fast pitch softball for 25 years. I have seen most everything weird that could happen on a ball field, including that call!

    Of course, if a batted ball first hits any player IN FAIR TERRITORY, it's a fair ball.

    1. Love the commercials - My dad never had a birthday when he didn't get one of those $1 razors, and my brother and I got the Gillette Baseball Encyclopedia.
    2. Imagine one announcer at a time that actually believed that we understood the game, and didn't need every little thing explained and expanded on endlessly.
    3. Ball was used until scuffed or hit into the stands.
    4. Love MLB Network and can't wait for the 7th game of the Pirate-Yankee 1960 world series !
