    I know for a fact there were a couple White Sox games (rain out/make-up games) that started 12:05 CDT that were not available on EI for me out in AZ. So it may have worked for some scheduled games, but rescheduled games apparently didn't get to avoid the restriction.

    It's getting closer. I got my renewal letter for my Orioles Spring Season tickets today. I'm going for the usual...two in the bullpen!

    For those interested there are a couple of promos of the MLB Network in the Showcase tab of the DirecTV HR2x DVR.

    1400 live hours - that's about 9 hours a day. No mention of actual full live games.
    Sounds like it's going to be like the EI channel that switches around from game to game.

    I wonder if we'll be able to get this on the MLB.TV service I heard of. Wasn't that what charlie suggested for Dish subscribers who couldn't get Extra Innings? (Provided you have a good broadband connection, which I do)

    Lancaster,...
    Do we know if MLB Network will be doing their own games or will simply be taking RSN feeds, like what NHL Network does?

    In the following overview of MLB Network,it states that they will air 26 live games throughout the season.
    They don't specify if the live games will come from RSN feeds or not.

    Since they're only airing one game a week(on Thursdays) I'm sure they'll be original telecasts.
