Cablevision has finally agreed to carry the MLB Extra Innings package on its digital cable service. According to Maury Brown, the last major carrier holding out is Charter Communications. Today is the deadline for cable carriers to come to an agreement with INDemand to carry Extra Innings or be shut out from carrying it until 2013.
Also, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports had a column about the possibility of MLB changing its local blackout rules, which makes its impossible for fans in some states to see just about any "out of market" team. Passan cites the case of the Kansas City Royals, who are blacked out in the entire states of Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, and Oklahoma.
