MLB Extra Innings

Why are the MLB channels mixed in with NHL channels?  Why is there about 34 MLBEX channels? Spectrum has not provided any details or info about Extra Innings. Is there a channel that displays all of the games on one screen like Directv? And PLEASE kill that horrible music on the schedule channel.  Spectrum has done a very poor job on marketing extra innings.  Smiley Sad

Hi JKelly,

 

Going way back to when we were TWC.  MLB Extra Innings and NHL Center Ice shared channel distribution based on the season for each sport.  Probably a bandwidth issue.  It seems that with the technology today, there should be room for an extra place holder for each station,  Gracenote, (not Spectrum) does the guide listing data for several TV vendors including Spectrum.  They would be the ones in charge of the guide data.

 

The added music on the stations not showing the games?  That's probably how MLB sets that up, putting a place holder in place of a blank screen so that customers don't suspect a video problem.  You would have to check and see what another TV vendor does with blank channels on MLB Extra Innings to varify this information.

MLB and NHL share channel space on the satellite that carries them. Since their seasons only overlap by a week at the beginning and end of each season, it's a good way of not wasting satellite bandwidth for six months at a time.

One more question.  Does this include the MLB Strike Zone channel?

Compared to DirecTV, MLB Extra Innings sucks on Spectrum! Can’t sign up for service on TV, Spectrum does NOT carry Home and Away feeds for Boston Red Sox games, and channels are very unorganized! Seriously thinking about returning to DirecTV!
