In response to andrewmitch's comment:
For those who watch from Non-Boston Markets, how do you watch the games?
My understanding is that Extra Innings OR MLBTV allows you to watch every game on NESN (In the past, I believe it was only about 100-125 games and half of those could be on the other team's broadcast; that's changed and improved now, right? I think with MLB TV PREMIUM???). Is this accurate?
But what about the Fox Sat games and Sun ESPN games? I would ESPN is no problem since that is just 1 game they broadcast (although very rarely sometimes it is 2) but what about Sat FOX since they do 2 games - will you get Boston or the other game?
And most importantly, what about Post Season games? Sometimes they split the feeds on one channel (ESPN, TBS, NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, FX, TNN, MLB, etc)...........
I have Xtra innings, and get every game; sometimes it's only the local team's broadcast, sometimes it's not on Xtra Innings because it's an ESPN, or Fox. For me, I like the NESN, but it really doesn't make that much difference if it's the NY or Toronto or whomever. It's the same game. I live in Ft Myers, so the Ray's games usually have to be watched on Sunsports, and the Ray's guys (especially some guy named Anderson) are really lousy. In that case, I grin and bear it, watch the game, sometimes turn off the sound, and hope the Sox kill'em!
Also, remember, the Sox and Yankees games are usually on at the same time so, with XTRA Innings, I can switch now and then should I have the urge see what's going on with, I think, our main competitor.
