It takes two to tango. DirecTV can't just pick up anything they want. They have to make a deal and the "other side" needs to agree as well. I can only assume that they cannot reach an agreement with CBC or TSN. Seriously doubt it is a bandwidth issue as there have been days that every game has been on.
DirecTV gets WPCH, CBC and TSN games on EI and In demand doesn't. In Demand gets WPIX, KTVD, and WKYC games and DirecTV does not. Each entity choses which networks to negotiate with to carry their feeds.
DirecTv doesn't carry WCIU Channel 26 Cubs and White Sox games either. The Only way for MLB to remedy this situation is to allow for ALL broadcasts to be made available via MLB Extra innings. They also should start including FOX Saturday Games, but they don't which is sad. Every MLB Team was supposed to review there broadcast territory. So far i've heard absolutely nothing else about that situation. I was really hoping and looking for some kind of announcement at the All-Star game but none was made this year. It's finally a good thing that we are seeing San Diego Feeds from Cox 4 and Toronto Feeds from Rogers Sportsnet and CBC. There are still alot of channels left to be desired for MLB Extra Innings. Mets CW 11 games, A's KICU 36 Games, Cardinals KSDK Newschannel 5 games, Rays ION games, Rockies My20 games, Angels KCOP 13 Games, Cubs & White Sox WCIU 26 Games, Giants NBC 11 Games, And All FOX Saturday Games. Untill all of these Feeds are added to the MLB Extra Innings Package, Fans are missing out on a Ton of Games Still. This needs to be remedied and these feeds need to be available. Isn't it amazing how we can get Toronto Feeds but can't get All the Other FOX Saturday Games that are played right here in the Good Ol' U.S. Of A?
