MLB Network / MLB Extra Innings

ComcastLast week, we reported that Comcast would not be carrying MLB Extra Innings in High-Def, much to the consternation of customers. There was a mixed set of signals from “not enough bandwidth” to "It's most likely because we don't have an agreement to carry it in HD."

Now, comes word that Comcast will indeed carry Extra Innings in HD. As reported by TVPredictions.com:

... In Demand spokeswoman Ellen Cooper told TVPredictions.com on Friday (March 28) that every cable operator that carries the Extra Innings package (including SD games) has the rights to also offer the HD games.

Asked about Cooper's statement, Moyer acknowledged in an e-mail Friday night that Comcast does have the rights to offer the high-def games.

She added: "Ellen is in fact correct and I have confirmed that. We do have the rights to offer MLB (Extra Innings) in HD and local systems are deciding whether to offer it...Some of our systems will carry MLB EI in HD this season."

As of Opening Day, word had not yet arrived in which markets Comcast might be showing EI in HD.

Keep us posted. Do you have Comcast? Do, or don’t have Extra Innings in HD? Post a comment.
