Extra Innings about to become the exclusive property of DirecTV.
by Bob Timmermann
For those of you without a satellite dish and a DirecTV subscription, it looks like you will be out of luck when it comes to getting the MLB Extra Innings TV package. Richard Sandomir of the New York Times reports that an announcement about MLB and DirecTV striking an exclusive deal to carry the Extra Innings package is imminent. DirecTV would also carry the channel that MLB hopes to start in 2009 that would no doubt be as big of a hit as the NFL Network and NBA TV.
