do you if mbl.tv will be included with Extra Innings?



It will probably be known in Feburary as MLB.TV usually comes out with pricing and features for the new year.

Here's a question. How come MLB.com's MLB.TV and Directv's MLB Extra Innings not work together and sign a deal to link the 2 paid subscriptions together so you don't have to pay for both MLB.TV and MLB Extra Innings? Do you see this changing in the future when the new MLB TV contract goes into effect in 2014?

Anyone try MLB.TV on a WDTV box, specifically the WDTV Live Hub?

How is the DVR functionality? Is it even close to the HR2X?

I have used it for regular viewing and it is quite nice (a WD TV Live box) but I never use the DVR functionality since I watch almost 100% of my baseball live

One issue I have with EI is that they do not offer some OTA feeds, while MLB.TV does offer them. Of course, when WWOR is televising a Yankees game, they give us that feed; and they do a few others (Phillies). But they don't provide games from WCIU (Sox/Cubs), KCAL (Dodgers) or KNTV (Giants). They also don't provide Jays games that are on TSN.

And while these teams aren't the Yankees, they aren't teams with a small following (Cubs, Dodgers and Giants are top 10 teams in terms of popularity.)

It's disappointing most for KCAL because it means we don't get to hear Vin Scully.

They used to offer the Giants OTA but it was only for the 2011 season..
