What is strange this year is that WMLW (which carries the Brewers off-air) was carried on MLB-EI last year, but didn't show up this year.

They are in the same boat as WFTC/FSN North...its simulcasted

Maybe the Bucks were on at the same time?

I hope they are not many more of these 'rare quirks'.. Being its only the first week of the season and this happened,. Im not getting my hopes up.

But..needless to say..Its a dream come true to finally have access to almost all the games..I could not live without it! I guess Ill have to go to bed early./.

Wild are done after Saturday and the Timberpuppies have another week so I dont think we'll have that issue again. I dont see Sunday's game yet in the RSN area of the guide but chceking zap2it shows it is on FSN North for the outstate MN bunch

It is certainely possible, however, to air it. Cable has it tonight via In Demand (just SD), and Bell Canada has it as well (just SD).
If cables In Demand (and the online version) has it then I don't see why D* couldn't have access to it either. I don't see the packages being that much different between cable and D* as far as what games they can show. Interesting.

The Twins game is in EI today and the other 3 games at 1 are not. That makes no sense to me.

I noticed today D* forgot to put the Twins FSN simulcast in the guide but at 1:00 657 showed the game (just like last Monday)

First time in quite a while a MLB game not on EI tonight.

A's vs Giants:

A's have no broadcast, Giants are on NBC in SF, so no EI broadcast. Just one more reason for DirecTV to keep pushing to get all those OTA feeds approved.

That said, they have done a great job so far this season keeping these situations to a minimum.

That is interesting. Whenever the Dodgers and Angels play each other, both teams still broadcast the game. Whenever the Giants and A's play each other, they often (not always) broadcast one feed in the market.

For example, the Dodgers and Angels game tonight is on both PrimeTicket and FSNWest

Tonight: PrimeTicket (Dodgers) and FSN West (Angels)
Tomorrow: PrimeTicket (Dodgers) and KCOP (Angels)
Sunday: KCAL 9 (Dodgers) and KCOP (Angels)

Next Series (6/22-6/24):

Tuesday: FSN West (Angels) and KCAL9 (Dodgers)
Wednesday: FSN West (Angels) and PrimeTicket (Dodgers)
Thursday: FSN West (Angels) and PrimeTicket (Dodgers)

Same thing Cubs vs Sox, Yankees vs Mets. Either way, both feeds.

Chicago specifically they share networks, so one is on CSN and one on WGN, it's a crapshoot.

I think Oakland doens't televise all games anyway and figure that way the fans can still get the game if they want. If you have 20-30 games or so you don't televise, there you go.

HMMN....the Dodgers vs. Angels game is in my guide and set to record Sunday at 1pm PDT on CH. 741-1. Also shows it on 694 Prime Ticket? We'll see about that tomarrow...(I probably won't get it)

The Dodgers official game notes lists Prime as the TV for Sunday.

My mistake. It was on Prime today. I looked at the wrong date on the schedule
