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 year each subscription was a separate fee. Of course they do not have any details but seeing MLB is not always forthcoming I think there may be a few people mad when they charge 99 for the PC, and 29 for the iPhone app like last year.
Another thought is that the android app was also extra last year and since no android is in this current promo they would piss off a lot of people if the do include PC and iPhone at one price but then charge extra for android.
The current promo picture shows and talks about multiple devices: a PC, an iPhone and an iPad. Those were extra for each one last year. Yes the PC, Roku and desktop are/were the same package and are the same platform. I am saying the current promo pic maybe/probably is misleading.
It does not include multiple devices. I just got off the phone with the person there.
The iphone and ipad come with it... but you have to buy the apps.. which means they don't come with it. Like everything MLB, it doesn't make any sense. Either it comes with it or it doesn't.
It says 2010 games are available, which they are listed on a PC, and searchable by team, etc., but I can't find them on the ROKU. So... I guess that they aren't available on the ROKU, even if you fork up the $99 for next season. Because, if you have a subscription for the 2010 season, it doesn't run out till Feb. 2011 and we should be getting the archives.
It's MLB...They are still living in the dark ages when local channels broadcast every game in every city, everywhere. When will the wake up and realize that there are no local channels anymore in some cities, it's all cable and satellite. So.... why not leave the ad's in, what's the difference to them if we watch ads on cable, or on ROKU?? Go figure!!
