Default MLB TV ???

Anyone hyped up about this new network (MLBTV) starting Thursday??

I would be except I have Dishnetwork and will not be getting to see it yet

I'm not overwhelmed with the NFL network but baseball seems to have more player stories plus there's all the minor league games year round.

Oh well, I'll have to find out how good or bad it is through you DirectTV people....so LMK what I'm missing come Thursday

I may tune in to watch minor league players that I'm interested in card collecting wise and fantasy wise. I could also see myself watching this instead of ESPN's Baseball Tonight.

Have to wait 'til the new year and see how it looks.

We have Verizon FIOS and they added MLB and took away NHL. I'd would have rather had NHL.

From what I understand they are only broadcasting 26 games. Other than a daily highlight show I'm still a little fuzzy on the rest of the content. I suppose the MLB.com programming is available.

Where did you guys see something about minor league games?

I am very excited about this plus they will have expanded coverage and I believe addtional games shown live of the World Baseball Classic

I would be if I could actually get it. Initial reports were that they may carry some spring training games as well.
