    http://www.tsq.com/alerts/MLB Extra Innings Blackouts2.pdf

    Each system/headend (based on zipcode areas served) is determined to fall within at least one Team Television Territory and corresponding Blackout Designation, and must be blacked-out of that team’s games on MLB EXTRA INNINGS. The entire service area of each system/headend, even if servicing multiple cities/towns, must be blacked out. Please see pages 7through 11for a listing of these designations.

    But
    • Special Blackouts –“OTA”For the select teams,which have the special blackout scenario, blackouts will be identified on the MLB EXTRA INNINGS schedule anytimethe “OTA”identifier is listed in the Home BO or Away BO column.If the special scenarioOTAblackout broadcaster is carrying a game, then ONLY the ‘inner’portion of the Team Territory is required to beblacked out. If the special OTA broadcaster is NOT carrying the game, then the entire Team Territoryblackout is required as usual.

    MLB EXTRA INNINGS AFFILIATE BLACKOUT LIST has list the of blackout zones
    • All US based systems will have a MLB blackout assignment.
    • no blackouts are required for the appropriate home or away team. This will only occur for a Canadian team
    Cubs / Sox have and mix of zones overlaps for some systems
    • Cubs RSN/White Sox OTA/Brewers
    • Cubs OTA/White Sox OTA/Reds

    Other odd / cool stuff

    Braves schedules is on the fox sports south website. Brewers schedule is available on the fox sports Wisconsin website. Orioles is noted i believe on the orioles website. Basically idea is all games are televised by MASN. It doesn't specifically which games are MASN 2 broadcasts. Royals are close signing an agreement with Fox sports kansas City. All games except for one national televised game are supposed to be televised, but not confirmed due to the agreement wasn't signed the last I checked. Cubs per Marquee website will televise all games not televised exclusively by someone else. Giants and Rangers I haven't seen anything stated yet, but games for the most part seem to be picked up by NBC and Fox respectively.

    I watched the Marquee feed of Cubs/Whitesox on MLB.tv. I'm in San Diego, FWIW.

    For Rob37: You can breathe easier now.

    Marquis feeds now listed in both EI and MLB.tv

    In fact, that Friday night game v MIL is not an ESPN exclusive. It's on EI:

    And MLB.tv:

    MLB.TV | Live Stream Baseball Games

    For some reason, a few teams still do not have their data in MLB.tv's schedule...Brewers, Orioles, Royals.

    It's also listed for channel 730 on DirecTV.
    Still remains to be seen if 664 will be open during the game, but it stands to reason that it will be as a remap regardless of location.

    Yes I just checked my guide. Channel 730 is supposed to carry the Cub Feed. Still remains to be seen if Channel 664 will be opened up for the game. I hope it will be opened up. And I hope we can get some sort of pregame and postgame coverage. I hope they don't start the broadcast with the game and then cut it off as soon as the final out is made.

    I don't think we'll see anything but the game. Tomorrow will be my first day as an Extra Innings subscriber without the Sports Pack, but it always seemed like those channels cut off for non-Sports Pack subscribers pretty quickly after games ended.
    In other Marquee-related news, Bleed Cubbie Blue is reporting that a deal with Comcast is imminent.

    EXCLUSIVE: Comcast/Xfinity and Marquee expected to announce a deal Friday

    I'd be shocked if they opened up 664 and my guess is you won't get the pre and post game shows from Marquee on 730. Hope I'm wrong but the Cubs are trying their best to keep anyone from watching their new channel.

    They probably will open up 664 for the game because it would have to be remapped to the MLB Extra Innings Channel it's slated for which right now my guide says channel 730 for the Cub feed tomorrow night. The broadcast will probably start right when the game starts and the channel will probably be turned back off immediately after the final out is made for out of home market viewers.

    Is there a free preview for MLB EI for the beginning of the season like there usually is?

    You have two weeks from today to cancel MLB EI so if you buy it you can watch for 2 weeks and then cancel for a full refund.

    In prior years, pregame and postgame shows on EI have been limited to channels remapped from the 600 channels - in SportsPack.

    Marquee is not in SportsPack, so I would not have much hope of A) 664 lighting up or B) EI carrying pre and post.

    Nice surprise if it does, but guessing it won't.

    Channel 730 where the Cubs Broadcast is supposed to be showing on MLB Extra Innings has the "To add this channel now, simply text, or call." Going to be very unhappy if Cubs Broadcasts aren't available.

    I am very happy to just get the channel when the game is on. The sound on my set sounds fine.
