Re: NFL streaming

The NFL deal through EA Sports works great. I airplay from my mac thru my apple tv to watch in HD on my tv. Does not work with ROKU that way. Thus the reason why I have both devices. $99 for the game plus NFL Sunday Ticket is a great deal.

Re: NHL Gamecenter live on Roku

Plus NHL streams at 60 fps compared to the other streaming sports at 30 fps.

Re: NFL streaming

I tried signing up online for mobile app. It always requires me to select package. It does not ask me if I can get DirecTV. Never mind. I see you have to purchase the game.

Re: NFL streaming

Get a Playstation. Sony has an agreement with DirecTV to allow you to purchase the NFL package without having DirecTV. You can stream all the games. In 2 years, it won't matter. DirecTV will no longer have exclusive rights, and no longer wants it. NFL will be streaming on every device when that happ...

Re: Wi-Fi is about to get a lot faster and more reliable

This still doesn't fix the lousy internet services provided to most Americans. Streaming will not be improved until internet service undergoes a massive upgrade.

Re: MLB.TV 2013

I've got to the point where I do a full reboot on Roku before I watch games every night. I do the reboot with remote. Home 5x, Up 1x, RR 2x and FF 2x. Seems to keep things stable on MLB as it does a clean reboot. I use the MLB bandwidth test on my computer, (not speednet) and I get around 15 Mbs vi...

Re: MLB.TV 2013

Just a suggestion: if MLB does not load when clicked on, consider restarting the Roku. The upgrade has caused some problems with channels loading at times (I have had it happen on other channels). I think you are right about this. Oddly, at beginning of season my Apple TV was having all the issues ...

Not true. NHL and MLB are quite fair with their auto renewal. You are notified well in advance when you will be charged next, and you can cancel before the season starts.

Re: MLB.TV 2013

I had buffering problems at times too over the past month with the Roku 3. Solved it by rebooting Roku 3 prior to watching. Not the normal reboot, but via the remote. Home button 5x, up button 1x, RW button 2x and FF button 2x. Clears cache out amongst other things. I did that one time when it began...

Re: MLB.TV 2013

I just want the MLB feeds to play smoothly like they do on cable tv (mlb network). 720p 59.94 fps. You can tell the difference, whereas the NHL streams look just like a tv broadcast but sharper. Streaming will never look as good as live OTA TV. Perhaps as good as cable, but nowhere close to OTA HD....

Re: MLB.TV 2013

The 2 killers for me with MLB's offering are: (a) If too many people are watching a stream (ie a perfect game attempt), it constantly buffers. (b) the big one for me: In this day and age, these streams should be delivered at 59.94 fps. Because they deliver them at 29.97 fps, we get motion blur. The...

Re: MLB.TV 2013

I was occasionally losing the HD stream for short spurts. I having been using google as my dns server (8.8.8.8) on my router. Seems to be a bit flaky and switched to an openDNS server, and the issue was resolved. Too many people use google, and it's starting to affect streaming. Was having problems ...
