    Directv Question

    I have a question for you folks about Directv programming. I'm pretty close to switching from Time Warner to Directv. If I do this, I'll probably add the sports package (a bunch of FSN's, YES, etc).

    My question is this...will out-of-market MLB games (for example, Yankees vs Orioles on YES) be broadcast on these channels? Or will they be blacked-out because of MLB's Extra Innings package?

    Blacked out
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Unless you really like the local programming you are better off to avoid the sports package. Outside of College Football, much of the programming is either redundant or blacked out. Unless you have something specific in mind. I would wait until you tried out Direct TV. You can always add the sports pack.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I like the sports package b/c even though the games are blacked out, I get the pre/post game shows which can be just as good, if you ask me.
    because at the end of the day, they still are the Chicago Cubs, and they will figure out a way to screw this whole thing up--Marty B.

    Fox soccer channel and Gol TV are in the sports package. That's why I added it.
