There's an early bird (by 4/6) special of $179 on Direct. An extra $50 to get the HD/SuperFan package.

No the ST part (at least not in the past). ESPN shows some though

Last season was the first one that I had the Extra Innings package and it was well worth it. On the days when the Sox aren't playing or even between innings, just to flip around and watch other games was cool.

Sure, there's something nerdy about staying home on a Saturday night to watch the Nationals and Pirates, but if you love baseball, Extra Innings is excellent.

I would have never before thought of getting it, but am considering now with a new cable package March 1. That said, I've always bought MLB.tv, so it's basically the same idea, except without having to worry about bandwith, being connected and what not.

I assume the regular $179 is all in SD? So if I want to see any games in HD I'd have to get the Superfan package?

This will be the first time I will be able to get Extra Innings, so I'm pretty excited about it. Looks like I'll be paying $50 extra for the HD games though. So not every game will be availalbe in HD?

I didn't get it last year since I pretty much go to every Sox game, so I could only see half the games anyway. But if they come out with Slingbox software for my Blackberry, I'll definately get it so I could follow other games while at the Cell.

Looks like the official announcement is out for DTV. InDemand doesn't have much except for the Free Preview.

If you get the regional sports channels via satellite (for example anything from Fox Sports Bay Area, to Fox Sports Southwest to Sports South to Mid Atlantic Sports Newtork) all the spring training games have been broadcast in the clear and not blacked out. (I get mine through DirecTV and pay about five bucks a month for the regional sports channels package.)

This is part of the promotion that leads to the first week of the games on Extra Innings being free and unscrambled.

They also do this the first week of games right after the All Star Break.

MLB.TV also offers ST games without blackouts.

I did not know this; I get a bunch of regional Fox networks on my digital package, though no CSN ones (probably since I have RCN not Comcast, I'm guessing).

I live in Wisconsin (about 45 minutes east of Minneapolis/ St. Paul) and Charter Communications says that Extra Innings in "not available" in my area. It is available in Madison and Minneapolis/ St. Paul. What the heck? Anyone else have this problem? They even promote the package on their website! This sucks.

This sucks.This is the first year that Charter has it available in Mankato. I'm signed up and looking forward to it.

I would suggest calling them back, however. The first couple of people my wife talked to didn't seem to have a clue, then she finally got someone who knew how to set it up.

I couldn't live without Extra Innings and my DVR.....her in Oklahoma that's the only way to watch The Sox. Unless you want to rely on the few games televised by WGN. I'm just trying to decide if I want to pay the extra for HD.

I paid the extra for the HD package... I figured I spent a lot of money on my nice HD Flat Panel TV, I damn well better use the HD feature whenever possible! :D:
