Hi, I have the Premier Pack (all RSNs) and I've noticed that old baseball games are blacked out. I'm planning on getting the Extra Innings package, and was wondering if after I do that, will those old games still be blacked out?

alright then... that makes my decision a lil more difficult, because MLB.tv offers archives.
If you are a picture quality snob (I am) then Extra Innings is the only way to go. I wish MLB would go with the NBA and NFL models and include the streaming content with the TV package.

I live in the Boston area and SNY(mets) is always blacked out of old games and highlight shows but YES( Yankees) often isn't blacked out.

PS MLB EI on DirecTV is great. You almost always get both teams telecasts in HD.
Funny you're in PHX I always watch the D'Backs games when I can.

Agreed. Really dumb the NHL or MLB don't. I sub to MLB EI, then have to buy At Bat every year for the phone, then if I want to watch online I have to buy MLB.TV too. So essentially pay 3 fees to watch what I've already paid Directv AND MLB for.

I got a Sling Box, it's expensive at first, but it's only a one time fee

I didn't like Gracie that much when I first heard him, but then I met him at a Scottsdale Steakhouse and after a few brewskies he had me laughing like crazy! He's a Good Guy, you just have to get used to him.

Sorry I got off Topic:D

Same for me. I live in the DC area, the Mets,Indians and Red Sox old games are blacked out. But I can get the Yankee games on Yes. Also when the Reds show old games on FSN Cincy I can get those black out free. I've never tried to watch anyone else's old games. So I don't know if those are blacked out or not.
I concur that EI is terrific. I love watching all the teams broadcasts. There are number of announcing teams that are very good and I will watch them over the Reds(my favorite team) most of the time. But there are some I avoid because they are just hideous to listen and watch.
Also Joe Garagiola does a few games for the Diamondbacks. I love catching the games he does as it takes me back to the days when he did the Game of the Week on NBC.
