but we should be able to watch padre pre game, games and post games with extra innings when the regular season starts, right?


Technically speaking, no. Pre and Post are not supposed to be available on MLB EI and that's been the case for a number of years. The reality is that it can't always be controlled as a human being has to be there to see if the game is over and then flip the switch. That human being is also having to monitor a gazillion other things so at times some of the post game can get in there. At least that is how it is supposed to work.

don't they have to monitor the part time over flows and sub feeds any ways?

and if the part time over flows and sub feeds are on for the post and pre game then why have some cut off the post and pre game when it's easier to just cut the full feed 1 time.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Time Warner Cable San Diego does not have a deal for Fox Sports San Diego. Looks like a lot of Directv installers will be very busy installing Directv in TWC service areas.
It's only tv!

FSSD is saying that AT&T and TWC won't have a deal in place in time for opening day. I sent a facebook blast out to my San Diego friends regarding the directv refer a friend promotion :)

As soon as last Padres season was over and knowing the cable monopoly was history, I dropped TWC- San Diego right then. Now have NFL network, Sunday Ticket and MLB EI in HD - best move I ever made. I was a 20 year TW customer.
