Anybody have a list of the 75 Cleveland Indians games being broadcast buy Dish Network?

Does anyone know if Dish is trying to get us the remaining games? Are they still negotiating with Fox?

I keep stalling, but I'm not as far away as you think from calling 1-800-DirecTV. :) Right now thru July my hours at work are going to increase and I'm coaching a Little League team again. I watch alot of Baseball in August and September, this is when I will really miss my Tribe games.
Have a Great Day! :) :flag:

I don't think it is unreasonable to think that the strategy Murdoch used in England and elsewhere (buy exclusive rights to sports packages, and use this as the "wedge" to get into more homes, charge a higher price, and make a bigger profit) will be used here as well. In fact, the NYTimes article elsewhere on this forum quotes him as pretty much saying this.

DirecTV has already been following this strategy (NFL Ticket, MLB Extra Innings, NCAA March Madness), but hasn't reached a critical mass yet where they can charge more than Dish and get away with it. If Murdoch is able to work deals such as (1) getting exclusive satellite coverage of *all* MLB / NHL / NBA games, (2) make it difficult / expensive for Dish to carry the Fox RSNs, (3) make it difficult / expensive for Dish to carry Fox O&O locals, then Dish would be in big trouble, and the price of DirecTV could rise without much fear of users bolting for Dish.
