    Agree with everything you wrote.

    I was an EI sub for years and decided to do MLB.TV last year. I was so impressed I renewed it for this year and will never go back to EI unless they take about 50% off the price.

    I too watch it through my PS3. The only downside is the fact that it is more difficult to flip between a game and another program on the TV. I have to constantly change inputs on my TV.

    The best thing is that with my JB iPhone and iPad I am able to watch my local teams play even if I am not at home to watch it. I have a location spoofer APP that fools MLB into thinking I am in Mexico.

    It was also on Fox Sports Detroit, a full time RSN. So it should have aired, regardless.

    The online schedule shows that the WPIX feed should be on ch 738, but my EPG is not showing that. This happened at least once last season as well when the scheduled WPIX feed was not shown.

    Just for anyone that is confused, EI does not show every game, nor is there a guarantee all feeds are available.

    It shouldn't be that hard to get WPIX's feed tho. They had it on Sunday when the game was rained out, and they were showing movies for over 3 hours :D

    It's not too much to ask them to get the guide data right. The random CSN Philly and Rogers Sports feeds are a joke. Put them on every time, it makes no sense.

    Not to belabor a point, but MLB.TV carries all home and away feeds (as long as they're being broadcast), and costs less than EI to boot. You could subscribe to MLB.TV, buy a Roku and be able to watch baseball across multiple platforms (TV, computer, iPhone, etc.) and still pay less than what DirecTV charges for EI. Plus you can easily spoof your IP address to watch any blacked-out game (I'm not a lawyer, but I believe this is legal, as well).

    They really should not be advertising that they carry every game then, Having MLB EI for the last 10+ years I know it is obviously marketing BS but I can see them misleading some people who would have a right to be upset.

    Right on their web site "MLB EXTRA INNINGSĀ® is your season ticket to every MLB game."

    Not every duel feed no, I never said anything about duel feeds? I was referring to the games they did not carry. But based on their web site alone I would expect to be able to watch every game, which you obviously can't. You can view about 97-98% of them which is pretty good, but if someone wanted to watch 100% of their favorite out of market team, I cannot blame them for being upset based on DirecTV's advertising.

    That is no help to us who are in Texas Rangers territory. While I have the sports pack, that game should have been blacked out as well. I was not home and set up a manual recording for the game on the channel it should of been on. If I had been home I would of tried the Tigers feed but do not believe that it would of been open either.

    I am currently trying to get a refund from MLB.tv. Don't believe the ads that say, "Watch all the games on your favorite device". I have all the requirements needed to watch games. I have an HTC phone with Android 2.2. They are now saying this phone will not be supported. Also the tablet I have was just able to get games.

    If you want to go to MLB.tv, go to their support forums and make sure your "Favorite Device" can actually do everything they promise.

    I have a Roku and have had a bad problem with rebuffering. The Panasonic Smart tv I have doesn't have any of the extras they promised, such as watching 2 or 4 games at once. They didn't tell me thayt until AFTER the date I could get a refund. My internet download speed is a consistent 8 Mps. The minimum they require is only 3 Mps, but it still rebuffers at least once an inning.

    Some people have had a lot of luck, hope you do too!
