The MLB Channel on DirecTV

The MLB Network is on Channel 213 for Directv subscribers.

If you’re trying to watch MLB Extra Innings, the channels for that package are 720-749.

213 is the right channel for the MLB Channel and 720-749 are the right channels for MLB Extra Innings throughout the country.

DirecTV has standardized channels throughout the country, even for broadcast channels.

In terms of MLB Extra Innings, they air their games based on the order that they start.

There will generally be blackouts for your home team.  These games usually air on a Regional Sports Network (RSN) because the team wanted to make more money.

A nice thing is that there’s usually a feed from both teams’ commentators and you can choose which stream you want to watch.

What Channel Is The MLB On Spectrum

Unfortunately for Spectrum customers, the MLB Network Channel is on different and even multiple channels depending on where you live.

A common channel it’s on is Channel 306 but that’s no good if you live in cities like Long Beach or Dallas.

Spectrum is the result of mergers of companies like Charter, Bright House, and Time Warner Cable.

Each of those companies had their own different channel lineups and they were the result of previous rollups.

Another common thing is that there’s sometimes multiple channels.

The reason for this is that one channel is supposed to be the HD channel and the other is the SD channel.

That won’t make a difference to most people but if your TV is really old, go to the higher-numbered channel for the best quality image.

Just look at our list below to find your channel.

Dish MLB Channel Guide

You can watch the MLB Channel on Dish on Channel 152.  MLB Extra Innings is on Channels 574 to 585.

The MLB Channel is going to be on Channel 152 wherever you live. It’s the same in Boston as it is in Seattle.

One of the unique things about Dish is that they have a second MLB Channel called the MLB Strikezone.  It’s on Channel 153, right next to the main MLB Channel.

The Strikezone is a channel that airs when baseball games are on.  Their commentators try to show all the plays and runs of the games running live when they air.

MLB just copied the NFL Redzone if you know what that is.  Still, it’s nice to have if you’re trying to watch a bunch of games if you have money riding on any of them.

How Can You Watch The MLB On Xfinity

There’s usually at least two channels where you can watch the MLB Channel on Xfinity.

If you’re in the same state, the channel numbers will generally be the same but the channel numbers will differ between states.

The MLB Channel is usually really far out on the channel guide for Comcast.  Most channels are in the high 200s or the early 400s range.

You can either watch the MLB Network in Detroit on Channel 1714.  I never realized that there were that many channels.

The easiest way to find the right channel is just to look at our list.  Find your city and start watching.
