four months pass...

Play-by-play faves:

1. Scully (Dodgers)
2. Waltz (Marlins)
3. Lewin (Rangers)
4. Niehaus (Mariners)
5. Cohen (Mets)

Unfaves (1 = worst):

1. Caray (Braves)
2. Kay (Yankees)
3. Martinez (Blue Jays)
4. Enberg (Padres)
5. Harrelson (White Sox)*

*Sounds more like the greatest of all-time when you've had a couple and the Good Guys are getting blown out and/or victimized by bad umpiring.

Enberg is pretty bad. He gets names wrong constantly. Then again, he and Mark Grant did an extended riff on the Hedy/Headley Lamarr scene from Blazing Saddles last night.

five months pass...

i just got my renewal notice from DirecTV:

You are all set to enjoy another exciting season of MLB EXTRA INNINGS. We are renewing you at the lowest price of 6 payments of $33.99/month...

so the total price for this year is 203.94. an increase of $2 more a month or $12 more for 2011.

looked on some DirecTV site and it says you can call and ask for a discount and they will discount $10 off per month. so this year, it looks like, i can renew at 23.99/month for a total price of 143.94. :-)

i'm doing MLB.TV for the first time this year since it's cheaper than cable tv and i only watch baseball really anyway. hopefully the proxy trick still works for watching in-market games

ciderpress, Wednesday, 9 February 2011 15:46 (nine years ago) link

now i just need to pick some teams to bandwagon

ciderpress, Wednesday, 9 February 2011 15:50 (nine years ago) link

Thanks for the tip, Bee.

Wrong-Way Willy (Andy K), Wednesday, 9 February 2011 15:51 (nine years ago) link

Am strongly considering having cable taken out and subscribing to mlb.tv. I'll only get to watch the Mets on the 20-30 broadcast games, but this seems like a good year to do it. :/

kind of shrill and very self-righteous (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 9 February 2011 16:07 (nine years ago) link

Morbs you can trick it with an international proxy server, I believe. I don't know of any myself since I actually am international.

Also, can't you share an account w/someone and essentially do halfsies?

Hurrah for giving up cable TV! The expense is obscene for what you get

progressive cuts (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 9 February 2011 16:09 (nine years ago) link

Would Yankees games be blocked for you as well? (note, this is a question about access, not whether you give a shit about the Yankees.) xp

Groovy Goulet (pixel farmer), Wednesday, 9 February 2011 16:10 (nine years ago) link

yes, I believe both teams are blacked out, they don't care which one you're a fan of!

kind of shrill and very self-righteous (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 9 February 2011 16:17 (nine years ago) link

also, the only other cable I watch is pretty much the news (plenty of that online) and Stewart/Colbert sometimes (same).

kind of shrill and very self-righteous (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 9 February 2011 16:19 (nine years ago) link

yeah there's a map somewhere showing the blackout regions - iirc if you live in iowa, every midwest team is blacked out, ridiculous

ciderpress, Wednesday, 9 February 2011 16:21 (nine years ago) link

and yeah xxxp mlb.tv supports simultaneous logins as of last year, but that's something they could fix any time (and i wouldn't be surprised if they did) so i'm a bit uneasy about pooling with people

they're less likely to fix the proxy trick since they're not the ones losing out from that

ciderpress, Wednesday, 9 February 2011 16:27 (nine years ago) link

I've been using simultaneous logins on MLB.TV for like 6 years

progressive cuts (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 9 February 2011 16:28 (nine years ago) link

The Braves (2 states, a 5 hr drive and a time zone away) are blacked out for me -- makes me want to spit acid in Bud's eyes.

Groovy Goulet (pixel farmer), Wednesday, 9 February 2011 16:31 (nine years ago) link

They used to use the address of the credit card that paid for it to determine whether a game was blacked out; I guess that's changed if proxies work?

progressive cuts (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 9 February 2011 16:54 (nine years ago) link

they use the IP that you log in with (so you can login with a web proxy and then switch back to your real connection to watch)

ciderpress, Wednesday, 9 February 2011 16:57 (nine years ago) link

Definitely worth trying the proxy route unless there's a chance you can get permabanned if they catch you. It's a really dumb system, though (unless you're in the UK where none of it is ever blacked out, but I doubt I'm their average customer!).

MLB Extra Innings Giving Fans 11-Day Free Preview

By Marcus Vanderberg on March 28, 2011 6:02 PM

Thanks to Opening Day starting earlier this year, baseball fans will get an 11-day free preview of MLB Extra Innings from March 31-April 10 on iN DEMAND.

The cable package retails for $179 if purchased before April 11 and $199 if ordered after that date.

Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications, Bright House Networks, Cablevision Systems, Bresnan Communications, Charter Communications, Midcontinent, and many independent affiliates are the cable providers offering MLB Extra Innings.

There are two new features to this year’s package:

DUAL FEEDS: iN DEMAND will deliver both the home and visiting team broadcasts of the same game whenever possible, so that fans can choose which telecast they want to watch.

MULTI-SCREEN MOSAIC: Preview which game to watch with this popular rotating mosaic of multiple screens that shows all the live action from games being played at the time, along with scores, inning and channel location. Find this on the first channel of the system’s package lineup.

anyone use the mlb at bat app?

Get me two meatball sandwiches Utah! TWO! (thebingo), Tuesday, 29 March 2011 13:37 (nine years ago) link

Yep. What do you want to know? I'm loving how I can watch proper, full MLB games on it with my mlb.tv subscription (apols for sounding like an ad)

Mark C, Monday, 4 April 2011 15:52 (nine years ago) link

also, I believe mlb.tv is free thru April

your generation appalls me (Dr Morbius), Monday, 4 April 2011 15:57 (nine years ago) link

I tried to use mlb.tv but it doesn't seem to be free. Any of you manage to get it to work without paying for it?

reggaeton for the painfully alone (polyphonic), Monday, 4 April 2011 18:46 (nine years ago) link

You get it free when you purchase the At Bat app, I understand.

Mark C, Tuesday, 5 April 2011 11:53 (nine years ago) link

mmm not really. you can't use the PS3 MLB app, for instance. and you can't watch it on your computer. if you buy the app you can watch games on the app and that's it. (but there's nothing stopping you from outputting your iphone to your TV...)

what burns me up is that i pay full freight for MLB.tv and then have to pay for the app on top of it! come on, i've ponied up a hundred bucks, i should get the app for free.

40% chill and 100% negative (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 5 April 2011 12:16 (nine years ago) link

I don't know about the promotion, but generally you have to pay for mlb.tv to get it to work on at bat.

Mordy, Tuesday, 5 April 2011 12:18 (nine years ago) link

o i c

i've never had one without the other

40% chill and 100% negative (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 5 April 2011 12:33 (nine years ago) link

so i should probably shut up

40% chill and 100% negative (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 5 April 2011 12:33 (nine years ago) link

it's so ridiculous that there's no non-tv option for watching games. i subscribe to mlb.tv but have to watch mets/phillies games on mp2p or whatever when they show on SNY

Mordy, Tuesday, 5 April 2011 12:40 (nine years ago) link

Wow, the new Gameday is crazy!

reggaeton for the painfully alone (polyphonic), Tuesday, 5 April 2011 22:39 (nine years ago) link

i have always wondered how to record these Giants games automatically on my DirecTV DVR. found this tip on-line tonight:

If you do a smart search and key in AALL HDTV GIANTS CCHAN 696 then press the red button to do the keyword search and choose Show Types and then Events, it should catch only the Giants live games on CSN BAY AREA. If you do an autorecord, you can specify extra time to add to the end of the recording.

just add your team along with that regional local broadcast number, don't think this will work with those random 720+ MLB Extra Innings channel numbers.

Bee OK, Wednesday, 6 April 2011 03:49 (nine years ago) link

with MLB.tv on ps3 all games are archived and can be watched from any inning... just sayin

40% chill and 100% negative (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 7 April 2011 01:12 (nine years ago) link

^isn't this the case with mlb.tv on any old computer?

Sorry, I didn't notice that the EI 'free April' thing was tied to At Bat etc.

ten months pass...

i just got my renewal notice from DirecTV for the 2012 season:

You are all set to enjoy another exciting season of MLB EXTRA INNINGS. We are renewing you at the lowest price of 6 payments of $34.99/month...

total price for this year is 209.94 an increase of $6.

will tell you how it goes when i call DirecTV and try to get a discount.

Bee OK, Sunday, 19 February 2012 05:27 (eight years ago) link

I got an email to 'renew' my MLB.TV package -- I only got the postseason last year -- for $99, which I guess i'm going to do.

Literal Facepalms (Dr Morbius), Sunday, 19 February 2012 13:36 (eight years ago) link

Would NYM/NYY games be blacked out for you?

Steamtable Willie (WmC), Sunday, 19 February 2012 13:40 (eight years ago) link

2018 obviously

Bee OK, Thursday, 29 March 2018 01:11 (two years ago) link

on mlb.tv, where the fuck is the pitch speed on the Statcast grid?

ice cream social justice (Dr Morbius), Saturday, 31 March 2018 00:51 (two years ago) link

MLB has made a slight adjustment to the blackout zones and I'm not in the Reds blackout area anymore. So I can see 19 more Cubs games than last year, and also catch Vottomania.

WilliamC, Monday, 2 April 2018 20:18 (two years ago) link

one year passes...

MLB.TV's website cannily doesn't say anything about refunds, but I emailed them this morning and they said OK, your subscription is canceled and we're processing a refund.

Miami weisse (WmC), Saturday, 21 March 2020 20:26 (two months ago) link

that is a very good idea.

Karl Malone, Saturday, 21 March 2020 23:02 (two months ago) link

$125 is $125 and I'm going to need that to buy a 4-pack of TP in a few months.

Miami weisse (WmC), Saturday, 21 March 2020 23:04 (two months ago) link

I spoke too soon -- the email says "A refund request has been submitted on your behalf. If approved, please be advised it normally takes banks 5-7 business days to release these funds." So it's a maybe, not a certainty.

Miami weisse (WmC), Sunday, 22 March 2020 14:13 (two months ago) link

due to my deteriorating income, I turned off the automatic renewal last year.

it'd be nice if they let us stream last year's games for free.

brooklyn suicide cult (Dr Morbius), Sunday, 22 March 2020 14:17 (two months ago) link

refund approved
