MLB Extra Innings Free Preview March 28-April 4, 2019

Can we expect it this week like previous years it was offered.?

 

Also is it going to be 1 or 2 HD games at a time?

What channel is the bay area Giants channel? Bought some sports package that I was told was for my Kru and Kipe fix but can not find it? Wish I had stayed with DirecTV.

If it's not on channel 720 in HD, then you might not get it.

 

Where do you live? Do you get any of the "regional" sports networks (not conference-based, like Big Ten or SEC; I am talking about things like NBC Sports Bay Area (which is what you want) or Fox Sports West.

 

I have the Sports & Entertainment Package, but the only regional sports channels that I get are my local ones. That's just about the only thing I miss about AT&T U-Verse (and, presumably, DirecTV as well); they included all of the RSNs, albeit without the baseball / basketball / hockey games.

Is it safe to assume you can take advantage of this preview ONLINE streaming via Xfinity.com? I pulled up the online guide but the Extra Inning channels do not come up under the 'Free To Me' filter...

Why can’t I access the free preview? Do I need to do anything?

I too am not not able to access the free preview. If the idea is is to sell us on a subscription, not being able to see the preview doesn't really help to do that.

Just spent 30 minutes on the phone with support. They reset my cable box and still could not get the preview. Oh well, I guess i’ll sign up for MLB.TV

How about skipping the BeTa and just give us HD channels. Realy 1 or 2 games in HD rest in SD?
