SZC was way better than what MLBN is doing. And that's even before factoring in the lack of commercials on SZC. The MLBN "replacement" has been a disappointment so far.

The replacement is also free, and available to subscribers outside of DirecTV.

just because its FREE does not mean D* had to discontinue it.

HOTPASS is free now (no subscription needed) and D* still offers that:mad::mad:

why can't D* offer the SZC channel??? just because D* does not charge for SUPPERFAN any more they should still continue the SZC. THEY CONTINUED THE MLB MIX channel:mad::mad::mad:

Maybe MLB won't let them? Maybe they decided that since MLBN is doing their own version, it isn't worth the cost to do it themselves?

Yes I guess that's what I get for braging about D* and telling ppl how much better it was and my main pitch was to tell the ppl about the szc ch and how they should get it over cable, guess not o well my fault.


What a terrible situation Direct put you in, embarrassing you in front of your 20 cable buddies like that. I understand you were under a lot of pressure to deliver, but I wonder what their reaction would have been if you would have scrolled down a bit on the remote and showed the cable posse' what Direct has to offer with MLB Extra Innings as compared to their cable offering, even without the SZC?

I'm thinking maybe they would have been impressed with the dual feeds and number of HD games Direct provides in comparison to their crappy cable offerings. - I don't know your buddies, but I'm betting that somehow they would have found it in their heart to forgive you and Direct for not providing the SZC this year, while being very impressed with what they saw. I'm also guessing you wouldn't have sent them home disappointed.

The point being, even with out the SZC, which we all new wasn't happening this year, the Direct MLB Extra Innings is hands down, without a doubt, the best, with no comparison, Extra Innings package available.

With Direct, we all know sometimes the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing. Complaining about something you knew wasn't happening is petty. Trust me, your cable buddies are jealous.
