Re: Thinking of cutting the cable, help me out.

I cut the cable over a year ago and will never go back. I have OTA for local networks, Roku for internet streaming with Netflix ($7.99/mo) and MLBTV (around $110/yr), and Apple TV for iTunes streaming and subscribed podcasts. Total investment was under $200 which has way more payed for itself in sav...

Re: 2011 MLB.tv Premium package for $99.95 available now

Looks like the offer is gone. I can no longer find it. Price going up to $119 when it returns. Why was there no expiration date on that offer?
Please correct me if I am wrong.

Re: 2011 MLB.tv Premium package for $99.95 available now

I tried watching one last night, and it was like watching it through a screen door. The video was still all broken up. What is your ISP and speed? And what model Roku with what type of connection to TV (HDMI or Component)? Just curious.... I'm using Verizon Fios, clocked at around 25mb/s, HDMI, Rok...

Re: 2011 MLB.tv Premium package for $99.95 available now

I had a standard sub last season and watched it on the Roku, my desktop and my laptop. So I am not sure what you are saying about having to have multiple subs for multiple platforms. I just noticed the MLB site says "watch on multiple devices" and it show a laptop, iPad and iPhone. Last y...

Re: 2011 MLB.tv Premium package for $99.95 available now

Problem #1 is the blackouts. I get no cable, or satellite and have no way of watching any local games unless they are on FOX Saturday baseball. Problem #2 is that MLB TV and ROKU never got along well. Do a search for MLB and you will see 131 pages of problems from April through October. The problems...

Re: MLB.TV Public Beta Feedback

MLB TV has been nothing short of failure the whole season. The past few days, trying to watch Rays - KC. "Please wait" messages, freezes, a complete mess. At times during the 5th or 6th inning, it would bounce all the way back to the 2nd or 3rd inning. We should get some kind of refund, di...

Re: MLB.TV Public Beta Feedback

Same here! Latest updates installed, Yahkees- Astros, Constant "loading please wait". Then it finally locked up on that screen. Tried Washington-Cleveland, same problem. I finally quit, this is not good. Is this still in beta??

Re: MLB.TV Public Beta Feedback

Loading, Please Wait. Constantly getting this message. Frequently locks up on the Loading Please Wait page. Tried watching archived Red Sox from a few days ago, The A's perfect game from the other day, and Yankees Live game today. Lots of LPW messages. Quality is very good. Just gotta fix that "...

Re: MLB.TV Public Beta Feedback

I am on an ethernet connection using cat6 cable, using Verizon Fios with speed test at 20mbps.

Everything else is coming in incredibly well with no reloads. I can watch a complete movie, DVD quality, or TV show in HD quality with Amazon on demand with no problems.
