I emailed Directv and this is their response

Dear (Rob),

Thank you for your inquiry. We do not have any information at this time;
however, if and when the MLB does strike, you may contact us in regards
to what we will be doing for our Major League Extra Innings customers.

Looks like they will do something, but they aren't going to tell you unless you ask after the strike starts.

A strike date is suppose to be talked about on Monday on July 8th. DirecTV probably doesn't know what they are going to do until there is a strike. If there is going to be one and what date it finally does happen. If the players go on strike at a certain date and it happens then DirecTV will announce something. DirecTV would be foolish to announce something now as that will confuse the masses of people out there and the customer service dept doesn't want to get hit with a bunch of phone calls on what if's. :)

The reason there's a lot of speculation about a mid-September date is that the owners got their TV money up front this year. So striking in August would cost the players their paychecks, but the owners wouldn't lose any TV money. The players' next-to-last payday is September 15.

There has been some progress in the non-financial areas of the contract negotiation.

Don Fehr is denying that the July 8 meeting is to set a strike date. He says it's merely the only time they can assemble all the player representatives in person.
