Extra InningsAs we reported in mid-April, Charter Communications has been working to finalize a deal that would allow MLB Extra Innings to be broadcast with the carrier. Now, Charter is staring at a Friday deadline to get the deal done. A sticking point, as before, is placing The Baseball Channel on the basic tier, something that Charter would prefer not to do. As reported by the Reno-Gazette Journal:

"We are desperately trying to get this concluded by the end of the month at the latest," [George Jostlin, director of government affairs and public relations for Charter Reno] said, adding that a May 4 deadline has been set for the deal to be completed. "The deal will happen, it's a matter of dotting I's, crossing T's, and making sure that everybody can live with the legalese."

Jostlin said that if a customer wants to be added to the priority waiting list, they should do so in person at Charter's south Reno office at 9335 Prototype Drive.

While this article does not specify, it would seem that Charter in total would work this deal, not just Charter Reno.

Stay tuned.
