    Why can't the hopper game finder find games on mlb IE? I can put my favorite team in and go to game finder it says no games. But there is a game on. The hopper is so unorganized and cumbersome. Its a real PITA finding anything, some banners show no games like Fox sports Midwest, but if you click on the channel the games on. :down:

    Thank you. Per that article you are blacked out in the team's territory regardless of whether or not you have access to the game.

    That is the blackout message.
    It not going to say Blacked Out. LOL.
    They don't always say" not available in your area."
    Directv says sometimes says call ext. 721, which we all know means unauthorized channel.
    And some times it says 737.
    Cable is the same way, sometimes it says not available, other times it says Not subscribed, when in fact it is subscribed.

    If you can't view a game on a channel that normally you can or a channel you subscribe, That's a Black out.

    So let me get this straight, Dish finally ponied up the cash to get Extra Innings and they don't even have the Blue Jays-Yankees games? What a joke. No wonder Dish will always lag behind DirecTV when it comes to sports.

    Games on New York and Canadian feeds may eventually be available. When I had Extra Innings on DirecTV (2009 though 2011), it took about a month before Phillies games from Comcast and WPHL started showing up.

    My dad has Dish and the free preview of Extra Innings. i tune to the Red Sox-Yankees game which is supposed to be the NESN Red Sox feed and it comes up with the "you must watch this in SD" crap. What a joke. How does Dish Network even exist anymore?

    because at least 14 million people couldn't care less about a Red Sox-Yankees game in SD or HD!

    Did you check WPIX or WQMY?
    We don't get WPIX anymore on cable, But they mirror the Game for us on MY53. But SD as well.

    And MLB Network is Blacked out.
    Just like I knew it would be.

    Did you guys get the Yankees game last night?
    It wasn't blacked out in my area on MLB Network. But the game wasn't on YES either.

    I currently subscribe to MLB.tv. However, yesterday I noticed EI was an option. I did notice that I could choose home or away, in SD or HD. However, I am not sure if this is always true.

    Here are my thoughts comparing MLB.tv on a Roku 3 to MLB EI on Dish Network, watching A to B. I was on a 55" 4k Samsung JS8500.

    • MLB.tv allows you to select the radio announcers.
    • MLB.tv image is a bit clearer.
    • Dish Network image is a bit smoother. I believe this is due to MLB.tv being 30 fps.
    In my opinion, pretty much a toss up. Therefore, this year I am going to stick with MLB.tv.

    What is everybody's thoughts on the two services?

    I have had MLB.TV Premium for a couple of years. Had I known that Dish was going to offer MLB Extra Innings this year, I might have gone with that. When I found out that ordering Extra Innings would COME WITH MLB.TV, I wished I hadn't bought MLB.TV earlier in the year.

    I would like to be able to simply record the games on my Hopper so that I can use the skip/replay functions on the remote when watching the out of town games, just as I do when watching the local games.
