OK, so I have Comcast cable... bummer. Rates went up this week AGAIN and now I'm paying 100 bucks a month for standard cable and cable internet; up 20 bucks from what I was paying.
But for the first week of baseball, I had a FREE preview of MLB Extra Innings. This was great, and the free preview was from April 2-9. It sucks that I live in FOUR markets... that's right, FOUR, so those games are all blacked out and they're not always available. I live in the market for the Phillies, Pirates, Orioles and Nationals.
Anyway, it is April 14 and I still have access to all of the MLB Extra Innings games. This is blowing my mind. I haven't done anything and I was so sad when April 10 rolled around; but I checked just for fun and sure enough the games were all still available. Now it's the 14 and I still have all the games. Now I don't know if this is unethical or stealing. I suppose Ned Flanders would immediately be on the phone with Comcast explaining the situation, but come on! I'm getting ripped off by those corporate jerks and I am enjoying my Extra Innings free of charge without any complaints.
So, in any case, the game is just starting after an hour and half rain delay. And here it is on Channel 776; Milwaukee and New York.... and I'm going to enjoy every second of it.
That sounds like a great deal! If you're in 4 team's markets, do you get all their games automatically, without needing MLB Extra Innings?
Think if they're cruel and do this:
It's September 17 and the Red Sox are facing the Yankees in the Bronx. The Yanks are up 4-3 in the top of the 9th...Sox load the bases on Mariano and Papi comes up. Right as Mariano winds up for the pitch, your cable provider realizes you've been getting free MLB extra innings all year and cuts your connection off!
