As Major League Baseball enters its mid-season All-Star break, In Demand Monday announced it will offer a week-long preview of the MLB Extra Innings out-of-market live game package beginning July 15.
In Demand will also deliver to subscribers a half-season version of the package -- which offers up to 80 out-of-market baseball games per week -- for a suggested retali price of $139 beginning Thursday (July 15).
As part of the package, subscribers will enjoy such video enhancements as dual feed telecasts, which offer both the home and visiting team broadcasts of the same game; and a muti-screen mosaic which will feature on one channel all of the live games being played currently, according to In Demand officials.
Among the network offering the half-season package are Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications, Bright House Networks, Cablevision Systems, Bresnan Communications, Charter Communications, Midcontinent and many independent affiliates.
Consumers can check package availability on their cable systems by entering their zip code via the MLB Extra Innings website, said In Demand officials.
