Hey everyone. They posted a fix. Unplug your x1 box, wait 10 seconds and plug it back in and mlb extra innings beta will work
Awesome. I was on the phone with support when the fix was posted. The employee told me I was wrong...sooo I proved them wrong by pulling up 2 separate games with different announcers. The front line employees were not told of the fix. They were told HD was not happening this year. That it was just beta. The employee now is going to look like a rockstar when a customer calls because she will have a solution to anyone calling about extra innings.
Wow! Everything's working. MLB EI Beta is working now. Also, I even successfully subscribed to MLB.TV through the link provided on page 1 of this thread. Watching MLB.TV on my laptop and successfully watched on my Samsung TV. So the previous posts in this thread by ComcastJesse stating MLB.TV is not being offered as part of MLB EI is incorrect. This is my first year as an MLB EI subscriber...and will be my last. Note to self...next year just subscribe to MLB.TV, cheaper and all games in HD.
Beta hd still not working for me, says a subscription required, which I already have, Comcast verified this when I first contacted them about hd beta not working, Wasted enough time with this, better off with Mlb.tv
Hi klrfromstl & machado22 -- Our ads do not advertise that subscribers will receive MLB TV for free. It is not clearly stated anywhere that MLB TV is free with an Extra Innings subscription. We do not have an agreement with MLB TV. We also do not have a broadcast agreement to provide all games in HD. We understand this is something our customers desire and we are continually working to obtain this agreement.
Comcast Zach, RE MLB TV.
If you go to MLB TV and authenticate with your Comcast creditials....you do get MLB TV for free. Here is the link, use the drag down and as you can clearly see...Comcast is one of the providers participating in giving MLB extra inning subscribers...MLB TV for free
But ... you're going to fail ..... because it's what Comcast/Xfinity does for it's customers.
I don't understand how you can charge $173+ for MLBEI, when I can get MLB.TV for $115. It seems to have become normal practice for this company to constantly gouge it's customers. Can you explain the $173+ ?? since you're an official comcast employee and all.......
There are only 1-2 dedicated channels that are in HD. the rest are SD. The DVR can record the channels. I live in the Chicago area, so the Cubs are blacked out from within the package. I see and record the Cub games on my local channels. If you live out of area, you will be able to watch the Cubs (as well as most other teams) live in HD on the Beta channels located on the guide next to where the MLB package starts. However , those channels cannot be recorded.
Comcast is now including the MLB.TV streaming service with Extra Innings this year. https://www.xfinity.com/learn/digital-cable-tv/sports/mlb
