    Thanks, I figured that out after 45 minutes on the phone last night. This is wrong. Bud Selig you suck. You are creating a monopoly. Watch out boys, this is a sign of things to come for all sports, NFL Channel? I think you will see similar actions from all major sports in the next few years.

    While I sympathize with some cable subscribers, let me say this. I HAD to get a dish to get MLB EI, my local cable company wouldn't carry it. That being said, I think Directv will improve the product since it got an exclusive. And I don't agree with the monopoly sentiment either. Dish and Cable were give more than ample opportunity to match, or beat Directv's bid.

    Here is the announcement. http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix....143&highlight=

    Call your cable company and tell them to ante up, the provision is there if they want to. No one is creating a monopoly, it's a question of whether cable and Dish want to agree to the deal or not.

    My Bad, you are so right. You would be shocked if I told you that I am an Economics Teacher.

    I'm certified in Economics too............ I just don't get dish network and cable. They griped and moaned about the impending deal being a monopoly. Now they are griping that they can't match it. I think the proper term is they WON'T match it.
