MLB Network. Are You Getting It?

Recommended Posts

The MLB Network launches tomorrow at 6PM for Comcast, DirecTV, Time Warner and a few other companies. I have done many things to find out what the channel is in my area and have come up with nothing. I've called comcast (my local SP) and they have given me no information on the channel or if it is even launching. I do not see how one company can be so uneducated on what they are providing their customers. I mean Comcast owns shares in the network! I was wondering if anyone else is having this problem in your area. I know a lot of the "major" markets have already had comcast announce the channel number in their area but nothing of the sort has been announced for Chattanooga, TN. Also are you looking forward to it? I think it should be real intersting. Below are a few articles that I found useful.

All I know is that I am a DirectV customer and it says this channel will be assigned to channel 213. When it launches tomorrow I will turn on the TV at 6pm and that's when I'll see if I am getting screwed or not.

I still have no idea what channel it is on Comcast here in my area. This sucks.

Try this my friend: Go to this website right here and see where it says CHANNEL LOCATOR? Type your zip code in and that might help you.

You can go here to see what it is in your area. Mine is TBD, well is launches tomorrow so now would be a great time to determine that!

Ok, this sounds like this is going to suck. On that same link I gave you, click on TV SCHEDULE (right above the photo of Don Larsen) and take a look at what is going to be on the MLB Network on January 2nd. FOUR TIMES they will be showing the 2004 World Series highlights and THREE TIMES they will be showing part 1 of a five part series called Red Sox Memories.

What channel is the Disney Channel again?

If i could get that channel, which i can't because all other countries don't seem to exist in the eyes of the MLB organisation. I would be sick of that being shown and i'm a Red Sox fan. :D

Its channel 280 here in Philly. As a matter of fact its been on for a couple of weeks now. I mean its not broadcasting its just showing clips of how it got started from the ground up and how they got a whole new HD facility in NJ. They also tell the shows that are on it and the broadcast team.

I don't understand what the obsession is with the Red Sox World Series wins. There has been many other more memorable events that could be shown.

Y4L, Jan 1st is when it launches but in Febuary they are launching their flagship show "MLB Tonight". The first month will be ok but in Feb it will really take off I think. Also when the season starts I see unlimited possiblites. If you enjoy that sort of thing. I like the NFL network also. It's just best to get the info from the source I guess. NBA Tv though needs to fix a lot. I wish their analysts would speak english sometimes.

I'm thinking since a lot of updates will be going in effect tonight at midnight they may add the channel then. I hope so at least. I was looking forward to this. It is advertised in my area and everything.

Unfortunately, (or maybe fortunately) I have Dish Network and, as of right now, there are no plans to carry it.

I used to have Directv, it wasn't too bad but my mom hated it since she didn't know any of the channel numbers. So we switched to TW in September but now at the stroke of midnight we lose all Viacom channel for every TW subscriber.

Off topic a bit bit. Do you subscribe to frontier internet or go with road runner? I found that each year frontier gets worse and worse for our area. I got to wait until May to actually switch to road runner. I cannot believe they charge you a 200 dollar fee for dropping them before the contract runs out.

Dish Network blows. They don't even carry the YES Network.

I have Roadrunner. I've had it since 1999 and I am satisfied with it.

I think it will be enjoyable when spring training arrives. After living in the heart of the Cactus League for the last three years, I 'm going to miss it here in Indiana. I figure the MLB Network will play spring games.

I did the same thing today. I clicked it to 213 and it said the channel was not available. I'll be checking tomorrow.
