    Is D* doing the strike zone ch this year? I know mlb supperfan is no longer available so I was not sure if they were still doing the strike zone ch. I thought I saw it in the guide yesterday but the season has not started yet. So I'm confused?
    Thanks for any info

    If you look at the EI guide on line or the quide on your TV for tomorrow, you will see that they have games schedule on 721 and 721-1.

    I think MLB Network will have something like the strike zone channel this year.

    That is what I have heard, but I think the difference is that it will be available more often than SZC was last year.

    The Strike Zone channel is definetly gone. They have taken that off the guide as of tonight. MLB network will basically be doing what the Strike Zone channel did every night. The good news is the Mix channel will be in HD this year on channel 720-1.

    It is on the guide for the next 2 Friday nights. So maybe they are going to show the strike zone channel on Friday nights.

    ...or that there have been very few night games the first few days of the season there has been no reason to have it. Friday is the first day on the schedule that is loaded with night games. I really liked the SZC...but now that game mix is in HD I think I might find myself staying on that channel more often.

    Or is just some left over guide data that just ends up there just like PPV movies that some times show up in RSN over flow channels?

    It would be great if this does come back, but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting. The MLB Network game day coverage has been disappointing so far and doesn't come close to the Strike Zone Channel coverage.

    What the hell? You invited 20 people over just to watch the SZC, after you were told flat out on here that it wasn't happening?

    Yes I guess that's what I get for braging about D* and telling ppl how much better it was and my main pitch was to tell the ppl about the szc ch and how they should get it over cable, guess not o well my fault.
