That's what I found as well, it looks like MLB.tv is doing the games live though. Way too early in the morning(3am) for west coast fans anyway, where both teams happen to be based.

I doubt seriously I'd get to watch any of it live, but I'm surprised that both the MLB Network isn't carrying it live and it is blacked out on the RSN's. I guess I understand though, since EI doesn't start for another week.

Im just curious why you would bother calling DirecTV on this it's a league issue not DirecTV.

because I'm thinking that they blacked it out by mistake. Usually when MLB.tv is showing a game, MLB Extra Innings will show the same game... BTW, I'm sure if these were East Coast Teams playing, we wouldn't be having these problems right now

Yeah, that's if they lift the current blackout on MLB Network. Right Now, I'm blacked out from seeing the Braves/Mets replay (a game I watched Live on SNY 17 hours ago)

Mr. Selig, These stupid rules Need To Go Away!!!

im able to watch SNY, but its weird sometimes, some replays come in on any sports pack channel, and some don't.

Sat, I agree i dont think no one knows or has a clue at MLB or Directv.

Hi Hallrk.

I should have noted...

Whenever you call, at the voice prompts, always say "cancel service" twice.

You bypass the normal CSR's and go right to the "retention" reps. They have a lot more discretionary discount authority.



I did say cancel MLB Extra Innings when I called. That's what I did last year and it worked. I'm not going to lie to them and threaten to cancel the entire service. It would be my luck they would say OK your cutoff. I really don't won't that.

This is a MLB issue and has nothing to do with Direct TV. MLB Extra Innings doesn't start until April 5, the same day the free preview starts. So yeah, we paid $215 for the MLB Extra Innings package season but the MLB Extra Innings package season doesn't start until next week so we haven't paid for something that we aren't getting yet.

Loving me some D* today. Called yesterday to see about canceling MLB EI and was only offered a $30 per month deal instead of $35 per month. I said thanks but I'll think about it.

Called back today, said I want to cancel MLB (which I actually wanted to), and the CSR very nicely asked is it because of the price? I said yes. Next I was offered the following:

$20/mo off my base package for 12 months
$5/mo off to add Sports Pack for 6 months
$5/mo off to keep Starz for for 3 more months.

Best deal I've gotten yet. Thanks D* Looking forward to Baseball now!!!!! :D
