As it did in the previous four seasons, DIRECTV is including a free subscription to MLB.TV with the Extra Innings package. MLB.TV, which normally costs $115.99, allows subscribers to watch the games over the Internet on connected devices.

The satellite edition of the Extra Innings package offers up to 90 regular season games a week with most of them available in High-Definition.

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 2019 plans. Usually, the difference (if any) in the Extra Innings price among the providers is only a few dollars.
