. If you are out of market, you will not see live baseball on sportspack channels without EI. Nor will you see replays on out of market channels whether you have EI or not. It has been this way for years.
Anyone living in Yankees territory would not have been blacked out on live or replay.
I have EI and sports-pack, and as far as i can tell I have been able to watch other replays no problem (haven't tried a whole bunch), but i'll check more often now, i know i've tuned in to at least a couple of out of market replays since the season started. If you believe that D* never mistakenly blackouts the wrong programming, then you are very naive. Here's a out-of-market replay for yah, I'm watching Eddie Murray's 500th HR game on MASN right now (man does David Wells look thin). I'll check the TB-NYY replay tonight.
My other strawman is the fact that the early Saturday games weren't blacked out on mlb.tv, even though the were blacked out for MLBEI; i'm pretty sure both are supposed to follow the same BO rules....
