    I like it, no complaints about MLBEI this year. I didn't personally watch the StrikeZone or the Game Mix channels anyway. All I want is the Red Sox on NESNHD, and this year, I get it cheaper!

    This should probably be a headline, no?

    A nice surprise to see a $50 savings with MLB Superfan going away. I personally didn't use the Strike Zone channel. The Mix Channel in principle wasn't bad but SD was hard to watch. If the Mix Channel comes back in HD as part of the standard package then that would be great but I can live without it.

    Thanks for the info. Not to be a jerk but we are only seeing a 'decrease' because we were overcharged last year. I suspect D* had so many people complain about paying for HD that they decided it wasn't worth making 90% of their premium package customers angry.

    Nice to see they aren't going to double-dip for HD this year. I was thinking about canceling this year, but if this base price includes all the HD for those who already pay the HD access fee, then perhaps I'll reconsider.

    I liked SZC a lot and I'll miss it. I know MLBN is going to do some of it now, but it'll probably have commercials when SZC didn't. (In fact, that was one of the main reasons why I often kept it tuned to SZC.)

    Great news.

    Thanks for the heads up and explanation Satracer.

    For the record I think most patrons of MLB EI will be thrilled.:)

    Of course there are always a few of the (schlar01 ilk) that are disillusioned constantly and think they should receive the 2009 package at 1997 Prices, I guess this would constitute a fair price in their minds.:nono2:

    Thanks as always Satracer :) But please let us know about game mix as soon as possible. I love this feature and I hope D* can keep doing it.

    I think the price was very reasonable :) In fact it was so reasonable that I personally would be willing to pay extra to get the game mix :yesman:

    Question for all those in the know: Does the HD span more than 1 or 2 games a night? I had MLBEI on cable last year and there was one channel - GAMEHD - that showed HD games. You'd get one or two a night (7 PM and 10 PM ET). I'm assuming there's a broader selection here?

    Well I don't work for D*, but I had the Ticket last year and there were definitely more than 1 or 2 HD games a night :) I hope Satracer doesn't get in trouble for giving us a price because the information isn't on D*'s website yet :eek2:

    Let's see. $10 increase for EI - $50 for SF = $40 savings for me this year. Can't complain about that.

    If I just had regular MLB EI last year, but now I have HD receivers, will the HD automatically be included, or do I need to do something special? Right now on my bill, it just says MLB EI, and $0, nothing about HD.

    Awesome - thanks. I might just sign up for it this year. Considering I paid $170 for it last year, it looks like I'll get more for my money this time around.

    Hey - does the renewal price only apply to people who have EI year over year with DirecTV or do you think I could get a renewal price because I had it with cable? Anyone else tried that before?

    As long as you have HD access, it sounds like you're gonna get it. Of course, I'll defer to Satracer et al.
