I'm on choice extra classic. What would I lose? It hasn't shown up on my online account some maybe it didn't go through


You won't lose anything moving to Choice Ultimate, but it will cost more per month, and you won't be able to downgrade to Choice Extra Classic in the future. That's the biggest negative to the deal.

Is there a list of what's in extra classic that are not in extra? Honestly I doubt I care about them. But it looks like it doesn't matter, none of this activity has shown up on my online account and the movie channels aren't active sooo I guess they didn't put it through?

If MLB would get their heads out of their asses in regards to the Fox Saturday Baseball debacle then MLB EI on Directv would be perfect.


Seriously that's my only complaint. I'm tired of Fox's crap on Saturday's. Four regional games and I can only watch whatever game they give me in my area? Well guess what I'm not watching. If you want ratings and viewers Fox, make the other three Saturday games available on your other networks!!!

Root Sports is 720p? Then how come Root Sports Rocky Mountain or at least CO Rockies home games look and sound great but every other FSN (also 720p) look horrible? Just my thoughts. :nono2:

You're right, Root Rocky Mtn. 720p does look pretty good until you compare to the Giants CSN Bay area which is 1080i. Marlins against the Phils on Fla. last night looked pretty good also, that is until I dialed up the Phillies feed on Comcast. To me there is a noticeable difference. FSOH going from 1080i to 720p this year has really got me upset. Reds Game against the Nationals yesterday was just pure puke. Emailed FSOH & gave them a piece of what's left of my mind. This is enough to turn me into an Indians fan. It's all about picture quality.

So showing right now on 213 MLB Network is supposed to be "MLB Tonight," their version of "Sportscenter," if you will. Why, then, is the damn broadcast blacked out??? It's just a show that broadcasts the day's highlights in the games.

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

Because you're in Cubs land & the Cubs/Cards game is on.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

They're using the Cards feed.

:rolleyes: You will argue anything.
Yes, it was...I checked right before posting. The guide said MLB Tonight, but due to a rain delay of one hour and 44 minutes, the game ran longer than allotted guide time.

Last night I flipped through the EI channels and found the Dodgers game not being shown on the channels listed for them, but on a channel listed for the A's game. Then while I was watching the 9th inning all of a sudden the feed switched to the A's game, but the Dodgers game didn't show up on the correct channels. On a whim I checked the regional Dodgers feed and the game was showing there. I guess someone was asleep at the wheel.

This doesn't excuse the mix-up, but I have always found it easier to view and setup recordings directly with the RSN channel that you want to watch rather than the MLB EI channel listing.

This is especially true for recordings. In my experience the MLB EI channels temporarily drop off the guide, which loses the request to record the game.

Last night was the first major mix up for EI this year with the guide. Let's hope it's the last one.

Why is there a blank spot in the guide on the Mets-Phillies game? The Mets feed is up, but where the Phillies feed would be, there's nothing. Maybe they thought they'd have the Phillies game and they ended up not having it? Weird.

The spot for the Rogers feed of the Orioles-Blue Jays game is empty, too. DirecTV once again being very inconsistent and arbitrary about when they use those feeds...makes no sense.
