This was on my Samsung plasma. A cell would've looked better. :lol:
would their be a chance to try it out during spring training. Doesn't mlb usually have a free mlb.tv game?
which service would u get
mlb.tv is 100 mlb.tv premium is 120 so basically 20 bucks different.
the premium offers 3 more features choice of home / away broadcast DVR controls, and multipicture.
what would u guys choose.
do the phillies make CSN philly available to MLB EI or mlb.tv during the games? i mean do you have the option of watching the phils broadcast or must you watch the opposing teams.
I got the premium, even though I will not be using most of those features. I just figured it wasn't that much more for the ability to choose which broadcast feed I want to view
They do run some free trials, not sure when they are. They also have a month to month subscription. That's what I did last year to try it out. Keep in mind, if you do the month to month, it's auto renew so you need to call and cancel.
im all set i made my mind, i just shelled out 120.00 its all paid for the year.
i even got it hooked up to ps3
Go through the calender and check out some of last year's games. See how good of a picture you get. If you get a lot of blocking and freezing, you may need to dedicate more bandwidth to your PS3.
When I first hooked mine up a few games I watched were blurry. Once I set a static IP for my PS3 and set up a DMZ, then my picture improved greatly, even fast motion (look at some of my images I posted)
games came in good i really didnt see a problem. I tried it on ps3 and home desktop.
I did a bandwidth check. I currently have comcast high speed
download speed 12.52 mbps upload speed 3.29 mbps
I'm getting verizon FIOS next week
As mentioned above, since you can go monthly with MLB.TV, someone could cancel if they weren't happy. However, last year Roku didn't have things working until May!
I signed up for the winter package that MLB has that gives me spring training coverage. I don't know whether Roku will have availability for this or not.
You can try a 5 day trial that you're charged for and then reimbursed the $119. I did it this weekend to try the PC version & on my Samsung TV.
That is a good idea. How good are they are refunds? I have had nightmares with customer service with MLB.com.
You can now cancel online under your mlb.com profile-account...it was easy. I then received my conformation email noting the credit should appear in 5-7 days.
anyone get any ideas on the deals they are going to offer for EI? I know the $10 a month is around, but I was looking more for the package deals anyone got offered that yet? Might have to wait more into March maybe..
they might be something especially wants the spring games start
Have they offered these deals in the past? I called today and was offered the $10 per month discount, effectively taking $60 off the price. Told them that I would have to think about it. I an hoping to hold out and get closer to 1/2 off, but if not I guess I will have to settle for $60 off.
I called last night and got $10 off for six months. A very nice savings, IMO! I took someone's elses from this forum (Thank You!) advice when I called in. When it asked me what I wanted to I said "Cancel MLB". It sent me straight to someone, sounded like a nice young girl, and I told her that I just couldn't afford it this year at that price. After moment or two silence she said I can give you $10 off for six months,how does that sound? I said "Great I'll take it".
So you may want to follow what I and some others have done to get a better price. No guarantee but its worth a shot.
FWIW, I called to cancel yesterday. The lack of Phillies games and the cost were the reasons.
The lack of Phillies Games? Is this something new?
Last year, with the exception of a few Sunday afternoons in September, DirecTV's EI included damn near every home and away Phillies feed. I ended up with severe image retention on my plasma from watching CSN Philly so much. I hope nothing has changed.
I am guessing that since he is in Pennsylvania all of the Phillies games are blacked out for him.
