DirecTV Free Preview Almost Out Of Innings

DirecTV will take down the preview sign on its MLB Extra Innings package tomorrow.

The DBS leader has been running an early bird special price of $179 (four payments of $44.75 if you choose) for baseball’s subscription pay-per-view out-of-market package.

Company officials say DirecTV’s version of the MLB service is the only one with such interactive enhancements as on-screen graphics showing up-to-the-minute scores, league standings and stat leaders, and real time in-game box scores to track game performance for each player.  

DirecTV is also pitching MLB Extra Innings SuperFan service, which includes up to 40 games per week in high-definition, versus 10 for other carriers, according to satellite service officials.

The SuperFan package also features the Strike Zone Channel – modeled after the NFL Sunday Ticket’s Red Zone Channel –that provides up-to-the-minute highlights and live action of key plays in HD. Moreover, DirecTV says it’s the only vehicle where fans can receive the Game Mix Channel, which supplies eight live games on one screen.
