Get ready: MLB Network is free this week

The timing couldn’t get any better. With the baseball postseason here, you’ll want to spend time on DIRECTV channel 213 whenever you’re not watching a game. The best news is that you can, because all DIRECTV customers have a free preview of MLB Network through the coming week.

Pick your favorite, then get the whole story

As I write this, it’s down to eight teams, as the Twins, Yankees, Rays, Astros, Cardinals, Braves, Nationals, and Dodgers battle it out all week in the league division series. This is what baseball is all about, folks. This is what you’ve been waiting for.

As the baseball picture heats up, you’re going to want the real stories, the background information that no one but MLB Network can give you.

The playoffs aren’t available with an antenna

Although I think they should be. But, I can’t change the world. You’ll need DIRECTV Satellite or some other pay-TV service to get the channels you’ll need for the playoffs. And, you’ll need pay-TV to get MLB Network. But, you probably have pay-TV because you find yourself on this site.

However, if you don’t have an antenna, you’ll want to get one now by shopping at Solid Signal. It’s not only the perfect way to watch the World Series, which will be available over-the-air in most markets, it’s a way to make sure you’ve got live TV all winter. Get dozens of channels and all for a one-time price with nothing more to pay.

MLB Network feeds your need

MLB Network is 24/7/365 baseball, plain and simple. If you love baseball you’ll want it year-round. This time of year is exciting, but MLB will also help you get through that long winter without baseball. You’ll get replays of old games plus plenty of speculation about the coming year.

In order to get MLB Network, you need DIRECTV’s Choice package or above. It’s easy to upgrade at or, or call us at Solid Signal at 888-233-7563 and we’ll be happy to help.

We only have a few more weeks of baseball left this year… get all you can by watching this free preview of MLB Network.
