    That's a really good deal. ANyone that is considering purchasing this should do it. I got it last year for the last month of the season for $10. I kept it this year and haven't regretted a moment to this point.

    I also twice had no problems cancelling. Smooth as could be.

    If you want to sign up for MLB.tv without auto renewal, purchase it through the mlb.com shop instead of directly through mlb.tv. Works like a charm and you only have to wait a little while to activate.

    Ha! I didn't realize it was a zombie thread either. Leave it to Doug to pay attention and call out the fine details.

    I read that first post without noticing the date and was thinking, BUNK! Alan Specter isn't a Senator anymore and he died a few years ago.

    Oops!

    Re: The Monopolizing of MLB's Extra Innings Package

    The whole thing p's me off to no end. I live in Atlanta. I'm a Reds fan. I only want to watch my team.

    So why can't I do that? Well right now the EIP is out of my price range due to my employment situation. Or lack of to put it more precisely. But as soon as I have a job, I'd buy the package.

    But why? No HD games. They promise it every year, and I get none. Maybe a few this year, as I see they finally designated one channel to an HD game a day.

    Now this?

    It's no different than having hundreds of channels when I only watch about 15 total. I want to choose my programming. End of story. It's a total waste of space. Give me my 15 channels and my Reds games and the rest of TV can go away.

    You can't get games in HD? Everyone else seems to be able to.

    I get annoyed that I can't buy mlb tv and watch games in Cincy. I don't want cable or satellite, I am just fine without them.

    You can watch games in Cincy. You just cannot watch the Reds.

    Re: The Monopolizing of MLB's Extra Innings Package

    This sort of applies here, and not sure if this has been posted...John McCain introduced a bill to the Senate that would prevent mandatory bundling and, more importantly for Cincinnati fans, prevent blackouts from publicly funded stadiums.

    Exactly, which is anti capitalism. The product offered by cable and direct tv is not good so I won't pay for it but can't get the good product because the league has deals worked out to black out the games. That or I can spend extra money to hide my ip and say it is in Canada....

    Re: The Monopolizing of MLB's Extra Innings Package

    It's actually ironic this thread got bumped. There's new legislation proposed in congress aimed at the broadcasting industry that would force cable operators to offer a la carte programming to those who want it. Of course, that would drive up the price of each channel if sold separately.

    But relevant to this topic, the bill reportedly includes language that would put an end to sports blackout restrictions entirely.
