    On last night's opening game there was an ad about the start of the MLB Channel in January. Any clue if D* will pick it up right away?

    Yes.

    If it is in HD right away is a different story.

    Since I believe they have an ownership stake in it, I'd guess yes.

    It is part of their EI deal. They created it with MLB. It will be on and I am sure it will be HD.

    It's basic tier. That's what all the fuss was about.
    MLB demanded that it be basic tier, and cable companies had a fit.
    MLB said, "Too bad. If you want EI, make our new MLB channel basic tier. Take it or leave it."
