I think Im going to do the 6 payments unless I get a healthy discount. I called about NBA League Pass and was only offered a $10 discount if I paid it it one payment so I passed. I dont care about mlb.tv I wouldnt sit at a computer to watch games for any length of time.
Im not sure if any of the other cable companies offer both feeds like DirecTV does so I'm happy to pay for this.


The thing about MLB.tv and why I may sub to it is during baseball season we go out of town some and it's not really a vacation when we go. Its to see family in our old hometown and it gets annoying after a few hours. At least having that I can watch games during the MANY hours we are doing nothing. Otherwise, it wouldn't interest me either.

I just called retention and got $40 off if I pay in one shot. Getting my refund this week so it's painless.

It definitely helps to ask for discounts. I want to swith to directtv from dish but I am in the dreaded Philly area with no RSN and all Philly blackouts....If they would just get Comcast Philly they would add so many subs...

Just saw Directv is taking orders for MLB Extra innings.

215.94 x 1 payment or

35.99 x 6

I tried to get a discount, but because I'm still getting the new deals and rebates plus I got NFL free last season and 50 of NHL CI, and 50 off NBA LP,

I wasn't able to get a lower amount.

I wasn't complaining.

So I, just chose the 35.99 x6 option, and paid it with Feb bill, so 1 down 5 to go.

No hope for my Mets....I am going to save $ 216.00

Sorry, but as a Mets fan since '62, I'm sure this season is going to have many good surprises for a change.

I can't wait to deal with my situation this year. I've been renting a place in the NH mountains for a summer month the last few years, but have never bothered to suspend service. I decided to spend most most of the Florida summer up there this year.

Can't wait for the discussion about price concessions when I will be gone for the last 3 months of baseball season, and the first month of football season, all the while suspending my account for 3 months. Bet there isn't any pre-programmed response on the computer screen for that scenario.:lol:

This is why Comcast will never agree to Directv airing their precious network. They have found a method to avoid competition, and every government agency that should step in, allows them get away with that blatantly unfair business practice.

Well Verizon finally defeated Cablevision in court to get MSG in HD. Took several years, but that's the New York market. Probably worth the expense.

Unless things have changed in the offseason and I'm sure they didn't, you will need sports pack in order to see pre and post shows for anyone other than your local rsn(s). Two things you should now, 1 exception to this is the mix channel which will show the pre show however it's for only 1 of the two game feeds, and if the feed they put on doesn't have a pre show you won't see one. Issue 2, the start of last season they were blacking out a lot of pre and post shows early on even with sports pack. Enough people complained and come to find out Directv was interpreting the rules wrong and they stopped doing so after a couple of weeks IIRC. So, hopefully that won't happen this year again.

Yeah, but I think the problem is a lot of us don't want to watch on a pc or in a motel room :lol:

Been doing the multi-payment options for a few years but I am seriously considering cancelling and going strictly MLB TV for about $100 less. I am hesitate because of picture quality not being able to watch on all my TVs in the house.


If you have decent internet I highly recommend it. I used it last season and loved being able to use it on my phone as well. Since DirecTV does not offer that I will be going with MLB.TV for sure. Worked great streaming it from my PS3 to my tv last year. The DVR functionality was pretty cool as well. The fact that it is a lot cheaper just adds to taking this option.

How does the dvr functionality work? Can you start the game from the beginning and ff thru commercials to catch up without seeing the score pop up? I found that very hard to do on the computer two years ago, and am curious how it works through the ps3 app (although I'd be using it through my Xbox/apple tv/ Samsung BD player.)

I got the large extra check I was expecting today and went ahead and paid for next years Sunday Ticket and Extra Innings in 1 shot. My wife's happy with no higher than normal bills coming this year and so all is good. I tried to get an MLB EI deal playing the "I'm about to pay this large amount now, can I get a discount on EI" card but no dice. Paid full price.

Just called to cancel. Got the regular price of $35.99 x 6 month less $10 credit for 12 months. So, that's $215.94 less $120 for a total of $91.94. Not too bad.
