MLB Extra Innings Package Question

Postby dipset » Sat May 05, 2007 2:44 pm

Do you get everygame... i just got this package and was wondering this.... can anyone else who has this tell me which games will not be played today? because i cant get the houston or the cubs game right now... It just says upcoming Houston vs St Louis the whole day.. other games say upcoming until the start of the game than it just shows the matchup with out "upcoming"

Any help would be great

Theres a bunch of games on FOX national telecasts today, so you won't be able to watch them on your package.

It's one of the problems with the blackout system. Right now, all these games aren't on in all areas. Despite that, we don't get to watch it.

I need to figure out a way to scramble my IP to overseas so I can even get nationally televised games.

I get the Yankees on YES, so I can't comment on them, but I am not getting the Nats/Cubs (though I did get them yesterday), nor am I getting the Houston/Cards game.

I believe that Fox has the rights to the Saturday games up until 7 P.M. or something like that. Other than that, you should get all of the games unless they are on a small station of an out of town team (like channel 9 for the Yankees).

i am going to say this very slowly....

FOX has the rights to a bunch of games today. Most of them will not make it to air in your local area. Check your local listings to see which games are on FOX. The rest? You won't be able to watch them.

Exactly. Games starting at 7 PM Eastern (or later) will be shown. This is how it works every Saturday. Every other day you're fine. But Saturday sucks. :-b

Yeah, the lame part is that I don't have a game on Fox. I have Houston on FSN, but one game, it pretty much stinks. I wanted to watch the Cubs, wah !+)

Fox is Evil in every way when it comes to baseball. Not only do they black out a bunch of games when YOU the viewer can only see 2 at most. They almost torture you with Joe Buck and Tim McCarver
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
