Any MLB.TV subscription deals? (is MSN Premium partnership over?)

I've been searching all morning, but I can't find anything about MSN Premium still offering free access to MLB.TV . I'm guessing that their partnership is over, and perhaps i'll have to pony up some real money to access Cubs games online this year.

Does anyone know of any other way to subscribe to MLB.TV for less?

The only thing I have to offer is this Pepsi One contest that offers free access to MLB.TV for April 4 and 5 only:

Enjoy!

My subscription for having MSN Premium(it was a freebie thrown in with my Verizon DSL) ended last week. I believe that partnership is over.

Last week, I found the original PR/announcement for the MLB/MSN venture. Tho it was announced as a multi-year deal and included the phrase 'MLBtv', it never specifically said how long MLBtv would be included free with MSN Premium.

Figures, I'm getting Verizon Fios in a week, and had been planning on watching my Beloved Sawk on regular basis.....

I haven't had a chance to check it out myself, but:

Supposedly, there's a glitch (or a tease) in the MLB system if you have RSN membership. You're only supposed to get MLB Radio, but some RSN members report thier password working on All Access, so they've been watching the Olde Towne Team for free......
