Rumor had been that DirecTV was going to offer "dual feeds" (both home and away) for all out-of-market games for Extra Innings. Well the guide is live, and it appears to be true. Not sure the details, but my guess would be as long as DirecTV has the RSN for each side, it will be available in SD as dual feed. The only other explination is since DirecTV puts the games on the RSN channel and the special MLB channels they could be doing it just for your in-market games, even if you're not an EI subscriber. We'll see...
It appears the HD feeds will all be home only, though. There are however 49 HD games on the schedule for week 1 for Super Fan subscribers.
Home openers start Monday at 1PM on Extra Innings
Opening night tomorrow at 8PM on ESPN/ESPN-HD for Nats/Braves.
