HD quality of mlb.tv via Roku player virtually is the same as watching it on directv. Just need a really fast connection. I have 22/5 tier from comcast but according to speedtest my downloads are 30 megs/second
Not unless you call a slight strobe affect virtually the same or bad edges or mosquito noise around action virtually the same.
For a small TV, sure. Looks GREAT on my iPhone. But on my 50 inch SXRD, looks only close on still pictures.
But as I type this, I am watching a replay of the Phillies/DBacks and just seeing strobing on Chris Young rocking in the batters box, hardly high level action.
BTW, I have 25 down service from Fios.
It is watchable but to compare it to the DirecTV feed is a stretch at best.
