DIRECTV has just revealed the price for its 2018 MLB Extra Innings plan, and it’s higher than last year — by $1.25.

The satcaster is charging $173.99 for this year’s package of out-of-market MLB games, according to a DIRECTV web page just posted, compared to $172.74 for the 2017 plan.

As it did in 2015, 2016 and 2017, DIRECTV is including a free subscription to MLB.TV with the Extra Innings package. MLB.TV, which normally costs $112.99, allows subscribers to watch the games over the Internet on connected devices.

The DIRECTV plan also includes the MLB Strike Zone Channel, a highlights feed, and the Game Mix channel, which can display up to eight games on screen at the same time.

Several other TV providers, including Verizon, Comcast and Cox, have offered MLB Extra Innings in the past. But they have yet to reveal details for their 2018 plans. Usually, the difference (if any) in the Extra Innings price among the providers is only a few dollars.
