I just checked Directv website and it has MLB Extra Inning for $34.99 but it does not state whether it is per month of one payment?


When I bring up the page for MLBEI it shows the $34.99 as a partial payment with $139.96 being the 1 payment option, 4 times $34.99 is $139.96. So, 4 months at $34.99 or a single payment of $139.96 for the rest of the season.

I would wait until after the All Star game to see if it drops some, $140 seems very high for just a half season of play.

it was 215 for the full season price back in march which was the early bird not sure what the full price was.

but that be about an 80 dollar difference between what i paid in march vs what i would have to pay now.

i noticed with alot of the sports subs that when they do there half time offer its not half of what the full price is.

to me the best savings are getting it when the early bird is being offered before the season begins for your sports sub.

if you can get any other discount by calling directv that's icing on the cake.

usually the way i do it for the 4 sports packs i get which is in my signature.

NFL and MLB i usually get both usually last week of february. i do choose the 1 payment option for each, so bam 2 sports completly paid.

NHL i do first week of september NBA first week of October and both I pay in full that way bam its done.

so March through august and Nov - Jan i dont have worry about paying for sports subs.

mlb.tv has a half season offer for 79 which would be alot cheaper considering theres about 80 days left in mlb season

There is a free preview when the games start again after the All-Star break. Usually there is a half season deal at the same time.

It looks like that is the per payment rate, as underneath it is the one time payment, which looks like it is for the half season rate.

So Prime Ticket 693 is blacked out for some reason. Dodgers/Giants with no Vin Scully.... one of the few away series he does the games. Not that I mind the Giants feed, but I'd like to hear Scully while I can.

I know, I'm a Giants fan and prefer Kruk& Kuip but have to settle for Vin. Not complaining, but love their commentary. Funny guys.

Why on earth would Prime Ticket be blacked out in San Diego? Isn't that the Dodgers market?

When ever that happens, when it shouldn't, go to the receiver reset page and reset your receiver. I have cured that problem a few times by doing that.

I live in northern Virginia and PT was blacked out for me too. Just DTV glitchiness I assume.

Isn't San Diego Padres territory? How could it be Dodgers territory too?

I live in LA and the Phillies-Rockies game is blacked out. Seems bizarre to me.

That's probably because it's ESPN's national Sunday night game, and considering you're in L.A., a Dodgers market, you wouldn't be permitted to view an out of market game during a national game broadcast.

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

That's strange. What time did the Phillies-Rockies game start? Was it a night game for some reason?

It was a makeup game played as a double header.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

If the doubleheader moved the second game into the 8PM ET window, that's why it was not available on EI.

The game started at 6:30pm. I assume that falls into ESPN's time.

It's a makeup game from yesterday, unfortunately DirecTV screws up and forgets makeups.

I thought the makeup game was played at 1?

Might have something to do with the Yankees....I believe the game is being played on MY9 and this afternoon's game was on YES. Maybe tonight was supposed to be on YES and Directv never received the updated channel info when they moved the day game to YES and the night game to MY9?
