    so I got billed for my first payment.. and I thought that I had tried to cancel over the phone numerous times when I called in previous.. so I called in.. and was told.. yes.. we have cancelled EI for you.. BUT they did not refund the money.. So I called back yesterday and some supervisor told me that the "money was not refundable' because the season "started" ... and I had to point out that the season doesn't start until the end of the month.. and was told .. WE HAD TO MAKE A SPECIAL EXEMPTION TO GET YOUR MONEY BACK.. some would call that a lie.. since its been posted here at least two different places stop before the season starts.. with a specific date, that has not yet come..

    I wouldn’t say so much as a lie. Just whoever you were talking with probably didn’t even know what baseball was

    If you insert "Cricket" for baseball, the rep will instantly cancel and refund your MLBEI payment(s).

    If you want to avoid overseas CS, when you call DirecTV, say "cancel service." You will get retentions, which is in US, and then ask them to only cancel EI.

    I am experiencing something I have never seen before - a spring training blackout. Yankees @ Orioles on MASN channel 640 is blacked out. There is no other feed on any channel. The other spring training games that are on are not blacked out. I am in Red Sox territory with the Sports Pack and I have been able to watch every single spring training game and the first week of the season with the free preview on the RSNs with the sports pack since I have been a customer. The only time there has ever been a blackout is if the game is on a national channel, or if I try to watch the Red Sox on a national channel and they are also on NESN... but I can always watch the game during spring training and the first week of the season. Anyone else?

    The game was last night. That is why it is blacked out. Yankees won 6 to 1

    Something similar happen to me earlier ... forgot what the game was but it was blacked out on MLB network and it was not mu local team. (Orioles / nats )

    I also notice some random Braves programs are blacked out on fox sports south ...

    The show was "3 aces , glavin, maddux, smoltz " it failed to record due to blackout rule ... ??

    Reynoldsburg...
    Sometimes if you catch those team-oriented shows the first time they air, they're in the clear. I've found that to be the case with some Cubs-related programs on NBC Sports Chicago and other teams on other RSNs. If that same show repeats, it's blacked out (stupid IMO, but heaven forbid you show old footage outside a natural footprint ...).
    Oddly enough, two years ago when then-CSN Chicago aired "Reign Men" about the Cubs' 2016 title team, another Cubs fan I know one zip code to my east was blacked out while I watched the entire show in the clear, hoping that dreaded black screen would not pop up.
    I've said my peace on game replays before. For Spring Training, they're in the clear live and replays ought to be on the RSNs as well. I'd love if EI subscribers got replays in the clear during the regular season. Unfortunately, I don't see that ever changing.

    Has anyone been able to authenticate their DirecTV account on MLB.tv?

    No for me either. It has always been for me that I have to wait until the 1st game of the regular season before it will authenticate.

    I miss MLB EI.. It’s the aspect of D* I miss mostly honestly. The digital only offering is pretty incredible these days but nothing in my mind compares to what is offered on DirecTV.

    I can't get it to activate yet, but have received my first bill with EI on it.

    What do you miss that beats "pretty incredible" because I agree with you, MLB.TV is great.

    I miss the overall speed of D* version I guess. Even with gig speeds nothing beat the ease of jumping between games. PQ was also a plus I guess.

    Nope. Last year I got it to work about a week before the regular season.

    I can't get spring training games via DirecTV as of yet, but for some reason, I can stream all the preseason games on my Computer via the MLB web site. Vey odd indeed, since no one else is able to do that, that hasnt signed up for the streaming package directly from MLB.
