Then I must be in the privileged minority. I posted video before showing there is no difference. I posted video before and nobody could guess which came from the EI and which came from D*
Here is a video posted by someone else from 2 years ago when the PQ was much worse. I cannot upload the one I did since I am not at home. Keep in mind you are watching a video online (through YouTube) which alone denigrates the quality, and it is in 720p only. If it was uploaded in 1080P the PQ would be even better. Don't forget to select 720p before watching.
To compare the quality of the video being streamed, compare the PQ of the video to the image of the PS3 control icons and the MLB.TV menu (since these images have nothing to do with PQ quality of MLB.TV). You will see that the blur is the same, meaning the blur is due to YouTube, not MLB.TV.
Sorry. Don't need any stinkin captured video from anyone on a smallish screen.
You simply have low standards or have deluded yourself because of the price difference.
MLB.tv has its selling points. PQ isn't one of them.
