    Hi there.. I´m an extra innings and superfan subscriber, I watch games on channel 730 all the time.. we´ll, except today !!! The Red Sox / Tigers game shows as if it was a PPV event, it says I need to purchase it for $4.99... what the hell is going on ??????????

    Anyone know ???? Thanks !!

    I have no idea, 730 worked fine for me today -- except that I wanted Boston to win.

    What time did you try and watch it?? Its possible you tried to access it AFTER the end of the game. As it worked for me today cept for the Sox losing and the damn Yankees winning.

    Same here on the frustrating outcome of today's game. I had a similar thing happen to me last weekend that speaks to what DCSholtis ^ said above. I was watching the game and then changed the channel. When I changed it back I got what looked like the last frame shown from the feed frozen with a prompt to order the PPV at $4.99. I was a bit annoyed because the frame that was frozen was an ad and I didn't know the game had ended. I switched over to 207 and the ticker said it was over. Much better outcome then, the Sox won. This was on my HR20. I now know why this happened now, but the on screen prompt that was given to me was incorrect.

    Yep.... the game had just barely ended when this happened. I wonder of DTV does this on purpose..... there´s always some time between he actual end of the game and the end of the feed allowed time as we all know it is not a timed sport. Why would DTV do this? To see if anyone "bites the dust" and gives them 5 bucks for nothing?.....???

    I think it is because 730 shares space with PPV channels, so once the MLB game ends, it goes into PPV mode.

    Hopefully, once the new bird comes on line, we can see many more MLB games in HD.
