Any good, plausible, rational or believable explanation as to why I can view the Padres pre-game show on the MLB Mix channel, but not on the game channel?


I was confused as well as I wanted to watch the Brewers pregame, but since game mix decided to use the St Louis feed, I missed it completely.

As soon as the actual game begins, you can switch to the broadcast channel.

It looks like DTV doesn't mind giving us the pregame in the little boxes, but not big screen (unless you have sports pack/local RSN).

Thanks for the reminder. MLB Mix is not blacked-out for anything if I remember correctly.

I'm in the SF Bay Area, and occasionally I have the the Dodger announcers on one receiver using MLB Mix while watching the SF broadcast on another.

It's Fox Saturday Baseball time so you know what that means: Finding a poor quality pirated stream on the internet to watch your out-of-market game.

Thanks MLB and Fox for looking out for your paying customers.

These are the Fox window games for those fans:

KC @ LAA
BOS @ DET
MIL @ STL
SF @ ARI




I'm glad the Yankees will be on tonight.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

He's screwed meaning he won't be able to watch those games. Some people get so defensive of MLB/Directv when it comes to blackout rules and any criticism. YES, we know what the blackout rules are when we order, however, we are still SCREWED when it comes to watching the Fox games not in our market. It's not like the guy was saying that he's receiving the blackout in error, or that he thought he would get the game but won't be, nevertheless he is not happy he's not receiving it. Is that allowed?

Watching the Fox Cardinals/Brewers game. PQ was horrible, so I switched to Xfinity, it was just as bad, so switched to OTA, and its still bad. Noise is horrible grainy on all the backstops. You would think Fox would do a little better on their season opening Saturday.

I'd take it. I'm listening to the Detroit radio broadcast and really enjoying it. Great game. Makes it even better it's Boston they are crushing.

Well I spoke too soon about MLB.TV, today has been brutal with pausing video and out of sync audio and video. I'm watching the Phillies/Pirates right now and the game has paused so much that is running about an inning and 1/2 behind the live game

So it looks like 4SD lost the contract for Padres, so now we gotta watch Padres games in Fox Sports subpar 720p? That's a shame. 4SD was one of the pioneers in pristine 1080i baseball :( The PQ is soft, grainy and kinda nasty. Don't hear anything in the surrounds.

Anyone else hearing audio problems on the Sand Diego feed? Sounds like they're underwater at times. I've had the same thing with FSMW in the past.

As a paying customer for EI Im annoyed that FOX/MLB cant at least give us a choice. What do they care what game I watch as long as Im watching a game.
I wanted to watch the D'Backs but only had audio access on my SiriusXM
