It's in the PSN store now. If the video quality is as bad as the sample videos (ST Ads) then this is NOT worth the price they are asking for from folks. Wasn't it supposed to be HD quality? I guess we will find out for sure on Sunday...


The sample videos should be representative of what you will get delivered to your home. One key is your network performance. The video adjusts based on the network speeds.

Cheers,
Tom

Tom,

The sample video playing on a loop on the Red Zone Channel PS3 app has to be encoded in a low bitrate.I have 40/5 Road Runner service hardwired and the video looks youtube quality.

A Sony Rep. on the PSN Blog mentioned that Directv will be streaming the games on the PS3 @ 3mbps, which seems pretty low for a high premium product....Look at post #13 on the Playstation/Directv Sunday Ticket blog please.(I cant post url's yet)


Is there a Directv insider here that can verify what the max bitrate that Directv will be sending through the PS3?

Also will Short Cuts and Fantasy Tracker be included in the PS3 also? Thanks..

Welcome to the forums! :welcome_s

Shortcuts will not be included this year. With a product like this, I do not want to predict future years. :)

As for Fantasy Tracker... I don't think so. I will ask about this and the bitrates.

Cheers,
Tom

I can't imagine the Sony rep would lie. And I never measured, but the PC streaming last year looked like it was about 3Mbps quality. I highly doubt they'd do higher quality streams just for the PS3.

If mlbtv can do 4.5mbps on their streams for the PS3 and the package only cost $119...surely Directv can up the ante and at least have the quality compareable or better for the high $339.00 premium it cost.

Here's the thing: What will they gain from doing it? It'll raise their costs, with practically zero return. They have no incentive.

Would it be possible to use the PS3 as a receiver and use the To-Go streaming feature on a laptop at the same time? Would signing in to the laptop service trigger an automatic disconnection of the person watching on PS3?


It stands to reason that if the PS3 acts like an additional "receiver" as the article implies, that this would be an independent stream vs. the Sunday Ticket To-Go stream for the same subscriber...


I have my PC logged in and tried logging into the PS3 and it wouldn't let me. It gives an error stating that you have to log out of other device first.

Question: If I buy the package on my PS3 tomorrow, will I still have to pay the full amount? Or will the package be the price minus one week?

It wasn't freeview for the ToGo, but I don't think they are scaling the price week to week. There will likely be midseason prices.

Cheers,

Yea, I bought it for full price because I needed to see my team.

Very satisfied with what I am getting so far.

Video is quite solid & audio is good.

Video could be a bit better BUT I dont mind it

I'm watching the Chicago - New Orleans game, getting 14.5 Mbps speed to the PS3, and it looks like a bad Youtube video. Artifacts, shimmering, etc. Absolutely looks like a low res feed
