I like Zippy's idea and I'd be fine with it if that happened. I live out of market and I will see the games on Extra Innings anyway, but I really like the way NBC Sports Chicago covers the Cubs and all other Chicago teams. Plus I'd rather not see my family and friends in the Chicagoland area have to miss out on games if the carriage drama we've all come to expect happens. If this does happen and DirecTV turns 665-1 on full-time as the Cubs Network in whatever name it has, I'd be ecstatic (knowing all the while that blackouts would be plenty, but still having the actual channel in my lineup would be enough). As for that overflow programming, NBC Sports Chicago doesn't have to have a full-time Plus channel like they do now. In the SportsChannel days, Plus was turned on just for pre-game, the overflow game and post-game and that was that.
