    I read on the MLB website that home markets were subject to blackout. Im 350 miles from St Louis, but we are in the Cardinals "home market" here, hence those games are blacked out on EI. Are you saying I could get them with mlb.tv streaming?

    If you just add the Sports Pack you would get Cardinals and Royals games from Fox Sports Midwest. Also Memphis Grizzlies from Fox Sports South.

    No Extra Innings needed.

    No, if you are in the Cards home market those games are blacked out.
    I get MLB.tv to watch out of market games only. I'm a Reds fan and that is my home market.

    If I lived away from Cincinnati, I'd do EI for the quality.

    Yea, but thats another $90 for ONE TEAM I watch, in addition to $215 if I want the rest of them. Might do that this year, but probably will just pass again until they quit the stupid blackout crap at MLB.

    MLB AtBat 2012 just came out today. Unlike previous years, this year's APP is the same APP for both the iPhone and iPad. Now you only have to pay one $15 fee instead of paying $30 to buy both versions of the APP.

    Of course, if you have an MLB.TV Premium account, then the APP is free.

    I just installed it. Type in MLB.Com or MLB at Bat in the search. Then select APPs in the filter by media types. If you only type MLB it will not get you anything.

    Even at $215 MLB EI is still the best sports programming deal, bar none. My problem is I am about to call D* to cancel this year. :D

    My problem is the basic reason I get EI is for Red Sox games, and this year I'll be renting a house in NH for July-Sept., and won't need it. I'll be calling in the next few minutes to cancel, or maybe maybe get something reasonable for the 1st half of the season.

    I hope you had better luck than I did. I tried to get a discount and didn't get it. I told them it was a little too much for me this year and they never offered anything to me. So I canceled. I'll decide after the free preview if I want to subscribe. I probably will subscribe but there's no need to get billed in March for the full amount when I can pay for it later.

    HEY! The Opening Series in Japan, which is on at like 3am (PT) on March 28th and 29th is only on ROOT Northwest. And being that MLB Extra Innings doesn't really start until April 5th, are those games still in the clear if you have MLB EI??

    Probably have to wait until closer to the games when the Extra Innings schedule is released.

    Well, it looks like MLB TV for the first 3 months of the season. I was quite surprised with my phone call to cancel. I told her the story as posted above, but was willing to keep EI if I could get a deal equivalent to paying for just the half of the season I could actually use. Took her forever checking on things, and then came back and said "OK, you are cancelled." :lol:

    I was a little surprised given all the deals I hear about on this site. I have been a Sunday Ticket subscriber since 1997, and MLB EI subscriber since 2004, so I kind of expected they might think $100 is better than $0, but apparently not. They probably thought I was trying to con them, but the story was true. So MLB TV it is for three months.

    I'd be surprised if it wasn't nationally televised (even at 3am). IIRC, when the A's played the Red Sox a few years back in Japan, ESPN televised it.

    I've found a loophole with the Saturday Yankees games black outs, I tune in to FOX en espanol-channel 624 I believe, :lol:, I don't understand what they're saying, but at least I get to see the Yankees on Saturday's, since all of a sudden everyone seems to be Giants fan and our FOX affiliate puts their exhilirating 1-0 snooze fests on :nono:

    Too bad FOX Deportes is now only available with the Spanish base package OR the En Espanol add-on. Most wouldn't know of this without looking at this board.

    FOX better do something about the Saturday regional games otherwise the MLB-EI/MLB.tv subscribers will continue to be royally pissed at the blackout restrictions regarding the other games. I swear, some people do not know what year this is.

    Now that CBS has quietly returned within MLB's fold via enhanced fantasy baseball, I hope CBS will have the network deal following expiration of FOX's MLB contract after the 2013 World Series.

    FOX will still have a lot of RSNs thus I doubt they would miss Saturday baseball.
