    I know I'm super early but does any one know what is the projected price for MLB EI ?

    They gave it to me free last August so this will be my 1st year with auto renew for MLB


    Does D* give it free or credit it like they do NFL ST ?


    Thanks and hope everyone has a successful 2019!

    I don't know how much it cost. Maybe around $180? To me it is the best sports package as you get the most bang for your buck.

    It should stay right around $180 the MLB has some sort of a deal in place where the MLB Extra Innings stays the same price every year.

    It's absolutely the best bang for your buck, by far, when it comes to the sports packages.
    I would guess a little below $180. I want to say it was $173.99 or something very close to that last year. That's still lower than I first bought it for in 2008 (was just less than $200 back then).

    If you have a streaming device, you can get the MLB.TV package for considerably less than $180 -- it was just under $120 $112.99 for 2018, or a single team option for $87.49, don't think 2019 has been announced yet. Same blackout rules as MLB EI, supposedly, although sometimes their area borders seem to be slightly different.

    I've subscribed the last 3 years or so to watch via an app on my TV or via Roku. In the past I've been able to pick it up part way into the season for a half price deal on Mothers Day and Fathers Day weekends. Either they didn't have a deal last Mothers Day or I wasn't paying attention and missed it, but they did have it on Fathers Day. Don't know what they'll do this year.

    Thanks for you suggestion, i did try this the past few years with MLB.TV (free from tmobile friend) but theirs just something about having it from D* that i like better . also select games in 4k (i know MLB EI not required for 4k) . also MLB EI includes mlb.tv

    in theory i could do that mlb.tv and chromecast to the tv , but would rather just press 646 to watch Fox Sports South/Braves !

    MLB.TV included with EI is a sweet deal.

    Also, if you qualify for a military discount (active duty, veteran or retiree), you get a $45 credit. They also have a student discount, but i dont know that amount.

    Is that military credit through DTV? I never knew they gave that.

    No. The MLB.TV and NHL.TV both offer that discount and they use ID.ME to verify your service. Ford also uses the ID.ME when they offer $1,000 off for military.

    So the $45 credit is only if you are buying mlb-tv? Doesn't do anything for you if you have EI and use MLB-TV through it.

    Correct. Since you're getting MLB.TV as part of EI, MLB doesn't offer any other discounts.

    It also says you can't combine that with other credits.

    Then just a guess on my part, but they won't give you their Hero discount. ;)
