2013-02-19 05:23 PM
stephimoe I responded back with, "Ill be looking for an alternative satellite service" (even though I probably will not) They responded back with:

"Thank you for your reply.

We regret to hear that you are going to be looking to go with a different provider in regards to this station not currently being offered, please know that we are doing our utmost as a company to satisfy all customers the best we can. If in the near future you do wish to close the account you would need to speak to our customer relations team by calling into the call center at 1-888-554-7827 or we can forward this request off on your behalf.
We truly hope that you do change your mind and continue retaining our services, if any changes are made in regards to the programming you are seeking (we are launching a new satellite in mid spring enabling us to offer more than 100+ new channels) please know that we will be sure to update our customer’s as soon as possible.

In the mean time should you have any further questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us. Have a wonderful day!

Regards,"""

Yeah yeah yeah meaningless words

stephimoe SD's 2013 response:


"Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to email us; we can certainly help you with this.

At this time, we have yet to receive word whether we will be offering the MLB’s “Extra Innings” package. With that being said, we would like to assist our customer with their viewing needs and we will submit a channel request on your behalf. Just for future reference, our programming is based on supply/demand and the ability to make a contract with the broadcasters. As long as this is something our customers would like to see, there is a better chance that this will be offered in our lineup.

Should you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

Thank you for choosing Shaw Direct,"


I could have answered in a lot shorter response. "No we are not carrying it......AGAIN!"

Krydor It seems there are some issues

http://www.forums.mlb.com/n/pfx/foru...elp01&tid=6492

All in all, as long as ShawDirect doesn't want my money, I'll give it to someone else.

seanwrestledude Hey guys, I just found out that MLB.tv is now on the Apple TV. I haven't heard about any freezing during pre season games this year though. It sounds like a simple solution for those that want to watch games on their HDTV's and don't already own a more expensive PS3.
2011-03-05 08:49 AM
Krydor I gave up asking them for Extra Innings. I can't follow the Rangers on Sportsnet. Jays, Yankees and Sox plus the Sunday night game. There are a few Cubs and White Sox on WGN. KTLA doesn't seem to air Angels games anymore and WPIX does the Mets, on occasion.

I've had MLB.TV for the past 3 years. Unless you are hardcore, I wouldn't recommend it. Makes the software issues with the 630 look like nothing. The bonus of being able to watch on my PS3 is nice, the freezes aren't.

This years SD response (2011)

Hello,

We currently do not have any information regarding future MLB games. This is not to say that we will not be offering a package. We recently picked up an NBA package that we have not offered in previous years. I would recommend checking back closer to the beginning of the season.

I apologize that we do not have more information at this time. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with. Please also include all previous e-mails with your replies.



Thank you for choosing Shaw Direct.

stephimoe Thanks Bud,

Ill figure something out...CHEERS!
2010-03-13 06:25 PM
Doppelganger399 Steph hope you get your baseball fix someplace, cheers.

Baseball on the xbox wow things in the tech world have changed so much back in the 80`s game systems played pong and pac man thats all.
2010-03-13 12:11 AM
Krydor Just like last year, I went with MLB TV instead of switching providers. At some point, they might make MLB TV PS3/XBox360 compatible.
2010-03-12 09:03 PM
stephimoe Looks that way, another alternative that is.

I just wish SD would tell the truth, something like: "there is NO way in HELL we will be carrying this package this year", and a snowball chance in hell we ever will."

I would respect an answer like that alot more. Stop patronizing me!

A suggestion for Major League Baseball Extra Innings has been forwarded to our marketing team on your behalf. We cannot say that we will definitely get this package but will make every possible effort to do so.

Another no go for this year. uhggggg

crazycanuck Well, I'll see how it goes but I placed my order to get Bell installed. They are still going to carry MLB EI again for this year so I made the switch from SC.
This is not a bash against Starchoice by any means, I would still recommend them but in my case it was just a matter of getting a program I wanted and Bell was my only option (other than the online version I subscribed to last year). My SC boxes will be in the buy and sell shortly.
