Will Direct Tv be carrying this? There was a commercial that this new channel is launching on New Years Day 2009.

Yes they will. It was part of their agreement with the carriage of MLB EI. Jan 1st, '09 is the launch date.

Cool. Glad to hear we should get it from Day 1. Is HD part of the launch?

hmmm . . . wonder if it will be on another provider as well right off the bat?


SHould be on Directv, Comcast and a bunch of other cable systems. Whoever has Extra Innings had to agree to carriage in order to get the rights to the package.

I agree that D* and others will have it available, but whats the rush, theres nothing happening in baseball on JAN 1st anyways, as long as it is active by say the last half of Febuary when teams pitchers and catchers report.

I'm assuming this is a yes, but did they announce whether or not this will be HD?

#2 in TV ratings to only football, #1 in total attendance (of course they do play 81 home games a year), and #2 in total revenue each year, yet they are #4 with their own station.

Will it be similar to the NBA and NFL networks? Will it broadcast a game of the week, for example? GO CARDINALS!!!!!

No doubt, which is my point, I can't believe it took them so long to finally launch their network!!! Figured they would have done this years ago!!! NBA was actually the first to do it.

I can imagine DirecTV placing this in the 210-219 range along with NFL, NHL, and Tennis. I am looking forward to its launch.
