MLB EXTRA INNINGS will appear on channels 587-600 as well as HD channels 538-539. The package also includes:
• Mosaic Channel: A rotating Mosaic service with multiple screens that alternate viewing of those live games that are airing live in the package at that time. The channel can accommodate four games at a time, with added games rotating onto the screen.
