An email was sent to Fios users informing them that MLB.tv would be included with EI.

"The first regular season game is just weeks away and with the MLB EXTRA INNINGS package from Verizon, you’ll be ready for Opening Day on March 31, 2014. Catch the biggest rivalries and brightest stars Major League Baseball® has to offer no matter where you live. As a subscriber to our auto-renewal program, the MLB EXTRA INNINGS package is automatically added to your FiOS®TV channel line-up. 2014 pricing for renewing customers is $199 and will be billed to your account in two installments, starting with your first bill after the season opens. In addition you now get MLB.TV™ as part of your package. Follow your favorite team on every device."


That makes it an easy decision if DirecTV follows suit...extra innings it is!

The EI product has always been run differently through D* so time will tell.

Good news if True?

 

Not questioning the forum member that said this but so far have found no mention of this on any FIOS boards.

 

Also $199 seems almost "too good to be true".

 

Would be great though if this does indeed  mean providers will be allowed to bundle MLBTV and MLBEI together for the first time.

 

 Long past due IMO.

It would seem weird that MLB.TV would be made available to FIOS EI subscribers but not Directv.  Isn't MLB the one making this decision?

 

It would be nice if this decision was made prior to Spring Training games, which are available to MLB.TV subscribers.  I'm not sure why EI subscribers can't get pre-season games that are televised on RSNs.  Seems like an easy, very low cost exercise.  NBA LP subscribers get pre-season games.

She was reading what is available. In good time (shortly) she will have a new script.

Just my two cents.

By the way, the landmark Directv contract was scheduled to expire at the end of last season :-)

When might more complete info become available?  It seems to me that DirecTV may be costing itself customers if people buy the standalone MLB.TV product before realizing that they can get a 2-for-1 deal at a considerable discount.

As the only hint of that happening with fios customers (and the wording makes me queasy) is the email that a few people have received (there is nothing on the fios website about it last I looked), I seriously doubt anyone is costing themselves any customers at all.

I would agree with you if anyone other than Satelliteracer had suggested that the CSR did not have complete information.

For what it's worth, I asked DirecTV on Twitter when MLB EI would be available and if it would include MLB.TV. Their response was:

 

 

 

You will be able to add that service on our site starting next month.
