MLBEI has no plans to show the Mets-Yanks series this weekend?

I know FOX has the rights to Saturday's telecasts, but what about the other two games? Even if the Mets are on WPIX, the Yankees are on YES or MSG - two channels that are usually shown on MLBEI. Does anyone know if DirecTV has plans to broadcast the series this weekend? If they don't, it's truly a disservice to their subscribers.

Don't know the full answer, but the Yankees are never on MSG. 135 or so of the games are on YES, and the remaining ones are split between FOX, ESPN and CBS. I haven't checked the schedule, but it's possible that the Friday night game will be on CBS, and the Sunday game will be on ESPN ...

K, thanks Mitch. I will be very disappointed if they don't show these games, but it wouldn't be the first time. I like EI, but it's the worst package overall for broadcast restrictions, etc.

Yep, FOX has an exclusive on the Saturday game, and Sunday's game is the Sunday Night game (in HD!) Friday is listed as a WCBS game, and is not on the EI schedule...

The game won't be on "CBS," it'll be on WCBS-TV New York (i.e. not on in the rest of the country). So, I guess the reason the game won't be on EI is that it's not on a cable or satellite station. Instead, it's apparently on two over-the-air channels - WCBS-TV and WPIX. I'm pretty sure MLBEI doesn't have access to over-the-air signals.

Please note - MLBEI <> DirecTV. MLBEI is owned by MLB, and they choose content based on the agreements they have with the game's original telecasters (and with Fox and ESPN). It just happens to be carried on DirecTV and on inDemand cable.

BTW, if you have East Coast network feeds (not your own locals) via DirecTV (because you live in a "white area"), you can watch the Friday night game via the East Coast CBS (which is WCBS-TV New York).

All that aside, I really do wish that MLBEI could put all the alternate Fox games on MLBEI on Saturday afternoons, and come up with some way to compensate Fox affiliates for it. The NHL does it for their ABC games.

With tonight's (Friday's) game posponed due to rain, there is hope yet of catching at least 2 games! I think Sunday will look good for catching the first game of the day/night doubleheader on EI, and of course the second is on ESPN.

Comcast gave me a free sub to MLB.com for signing up for cable internet, I seem to be able to watch all of the games on my PC. Not a bad pic either.
