Extra InningsOne of nice side effects of the recent Extra Innings agreement was scanning through the channels to find San Diego Cox Channel 4 feeds of Padres games, and Comcast SportsNet feeds of Phillies games. Due to exclusive agreements, those feeds were only available on cable regionally and not part of Extra Innings prior to this season.

It seems, however, that it depends on which carrier you are viewing Extra Innings through that dictate whether you have access to the feeds.

Glancing at iN Demand's schedule for Extra Innings, one will find that none of the Cox 4 or Comcast SportsNets feeds for the Padres and Phillies are listed. While the carrier of the feed to DirecTV's Extra Innings schedule isn't listed, more than one, including this author, has watched games from Cox and Comcast for Padres and Phillies games.

So, be aware of this twist. Barring being in a blackout area, you should be able to gain access to these teams, just through away feed as opposed to Cox 4 or Comcast SportsNet, but that may not be entirely the case. As one astute viewer mentioned to me, " Last night's Padres/Diamondbacks game was not shown via In Demand because it was televised on Arizona's local network station, which is never picked up by Extra Innings."
