    I went to the signup page today and it says SD. Not mix but SD. I asked CSR online about the designation of SD on package. Answer was real vague about depends on what feeds they get from RSN's. They won't be truthful, the preview week may be as good as it gets for HD games, so enjoy.

    Sheesh. So 1 Time Warner cable sports channel wasn't enough? THey had to add ANOTHER one? Y not just have a TWCS+ or TWCS2 channel for when they're multiple games at the same time.?!? Crazy to start a whole nother channel just for Dogders, especially when theres 2 FSN affiliates already in market, and I'm sure the FSN's have a much larger penetration than TWCS.

    crazy

    Actually there is now 3 1/2 Time Warner cable sports channels. There is one full-time Lakers channel that includes all kinds of other content. There is one Lakers full-time channel in Spanish that includes other content. There is the Dodgers channel which includes nothing but Dodgers and only Dodgers in English. There is also a channel they turn on only during dodger games that is in yes all Spanish. Why they couldn't figure out how to make the Dodgers and Lakers work together on the same Channel and add an alt channel for when they have games on at the same time is beyond me. Granted there's about three months worth of overlap.

    For 2 days, I've been trying to access http://www.dish.com/ to check what feeds DN is using for EI, but it won't load. Can anyone list them?

    Does http://www.mydish.com/gamefinder not load for you either?

    I do not see a list specific to MLB EI ... but the Game Finder should help show what feeds DISH has on their system.

    The MLB EI channels from my EPG Tonight:
    7pm Orioles at Rays (TB feed) - also on MLB alternate
    7pm Braves at Marlins (MIA and ATL feeds) - also on MLB Network
    8pm Cardinals at Cubs (STL feed)
    8pm Rockies at Brewers (MIL and COL feeds)
    9:30 Giants at Diamondbacks (SF and ARI feeds)
    10pm Padres at Dodgers (SD feed) - also on MLB Network
    10pm Rangers at Athletics (TEX and OAK feed) - also on MLB Alternate
    10pm Angels at Mariners (LAA and SEA feeds)

    (MLB Strike Zone is also warmed up ready for the first games to begin.)

    Unless they're detecting my location via IP address and filtering out the games since I would be blacked out of them, I don't see any of this week's Yankees vs Blue Jays series on the schedule.

    Perhaps if DISH subscribers complain (to DISH) as much as non-DISH subscribers complain about it DISH will notice the discrepancy. :)

    I would think it's safe to say most Yankees and Mets fans don't subscribe to Dish Network.

    Who's complaining? I guess we can't point out inadequacies here. I'm sorry I pointed out flaws in your almighty satellite service.

    For those who subscribe to MLB extra innings who have not been able to log onto MLB.TV for streaming, I am told by MLB that the link to log on will be available tomorrow.

    As to my earlier question regarding blackouts. Sitting here near Fort Wayne Indiana and on the free MLB EI preview the White Sox game, only available on local Chicago WGN Channel 9 tonight, is blacked out for me on MLB EI.

    I am getting "Programming Not Authorized (005)" not a blackout message "This program is not available for viewing in your area. (743)"

    South Bend Market. Most of the other MLB channels can be watched.

    I'm getting the game on one of the alt. dish channels. Had to use game finder. Blackout on the EI channel. I'm in the Royals zone however.

    I just have nothing, a black screen for the White Sox. My point being, may be a team in my market but I cannot see this game any other way.
