    Here is another link in regards to MLB Network.
    It will allow you to enter your zip code to see which providers are carrying the channel,and the channel number for each respective service provider. :)

    This is an interesting tought. The lack of games that they'll be broadcasting is what really surprises me. Picking up the rotating RSN feeds is more appealing to me so that I can get to hear voices I normally wouldn't get to hear. When NBA-TV does games, they pick up one of the RSN feeds & then they black out the broadcast in the 2 local markets so that people are forced to view it on the local RSN's of the teams involved. That being stated, even they do more than one game a week. I'm really not sure what the N.H.L does. Broadcast rules for 2 different countries may have to be considered. The N.F.L. Channel has it's own production.

    Sounds like the MLB channel will be replacing the EI channel mix that flips around different games. The one live game will be on Thursdays when the fewest number of games are on.

    Absolutely. I'm already booking my trip to Arizona for spring training.

    THANK YOU for putting all this together in one thread! Any idea when I can purchase MLB EI from DirecTV? This will be the first year I can get it!

    You're quite welcome. :)
    In regards to the MLB EI package,programming providers (satellite,cable,etc.) have not released any information in regards to ordering it at this time.
    There is pretty much a blanket statement coming from all of the providers,saying to check back closer to the start of the 2009 season to order the package.
    If I find any new info for MLB EI in the near future,I will post it in this thread.

    Thanks Steve!

    I cant wait for this season! Like I said before this will be the first time I can get it here. If I had known that the NESN feeds would work by ordering MLB EI I probably would have done it at the end of last season...

    I look forward to hearing the "Go Ahead" in this thread soon!

    MLB.com got around to updating the MLB Network channel locator news on their site a little while ago.
    DirecTV will have it on channel 213.
    They are advising everyone else (cable and telco customers) to use the channel locator.

    It still hasn't shown up on Directvs guide, less than 48 hours before its launch.

    We are DirecTV subscribers too.
    I would venture to guess that it will show up in our guides around 6AM ET on Thursday.
    Of course,that is just a guess on my part.
    Who knows,it may pop up sooner than that (Wednesday) . :)
