Same here. I have MLB.tv....I read the terms of the settlement and Dish was not mentioned as a provider of the MLB EI....So who knows.I saw it was available to order when I signed up. Also, it will be the same or cheaper than last year do to a class action settlement. I do MLB.TV and got a notice about this. Said it affected both MLB EI & .TV. My MLB TV is $20 cheaper than last year.
I think it will be back. A couple years ago, Dish pulled the same crap with NHL CI.....The agreement was signed about a week before the regular season began....
ANyway. For those interested, MLB, tv is also offering a package where one can follow a single team. And that one is free of blackouts. So if one resides in a another team's market and your team is playing that team. you may still view your home team's feed.
For example. Let's say for instance you are a Pirates fan living in the Reds market. The Pirates are in town, Normally on MLB.tv the Pirate's feed would be blacked out. With this new package, you can still view the Pirates feed.
I actually prefer the MLB.tv to the extra Innings.
