    Try doing your calculations on a per episode vs. per game basis.

    Generally a TV season lasts about 20 or 26 in the US. Prior to the current TV season these were the top earners:

    2.5 men cost $2 million+ per episode just in their top 3 stars.

    "DISH Network L.L.C., the leader in international programming in the United States, today announced that it is the only television provider in the U.S. to broadcast the entire Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket tournament, including playoffs and finals in high definition, for the next four seasons."

    Guess Charlie doesn't understand that MLB is our nation's pastime, appears he was saving all that bandwidth for... cricket?

    For the prices they charge for Cricket, they can afford to put up another satellite.

    :mad: OK, more fun today... Just spent over 1/2 an hour on the phone with someone that doesn't understand what I'm talking about and when I asked to be transferred to someone else, the phone simply rang 15 times with no answer before I gave up on it...

    Came home right at one o'clock this afternoon to watch today's game. They may not be much, but they're my Diamondbacks.

    Turned the TV to channel 415 (FSN Arizona) and got the Reds/Pirates game. Now I'm sure they are fine teams, but neither one belongs on FSN Arizona. Tried the guide and yep, it said Giants vs. Diamondbacks... Just for the heck of it, tried channel 5415 (HD Tier) and the Reds were on there too even though the guide showed it supposed to be Giants/Diamondbacks.

    Called Tech Support, and after I explained what my problem was, he asked me what channel I was watching. Told him 415. After he went away for a few, he came back and told me that I had Americas Top 250 and wasn't authorized channel 415. Told him to try 5415 and got the same answer...

    After a few more iterations of this, he finally understood that I was looking for the Giants/Diamondbacks game. Looked it up in "his database" and told me it was on at 4:30 am and at 4 pm. I asked him what time zone and he insisted it was AZ time (The game actually started at 1 pm).

    We continued in this vane for quite a while before my frustration level kicked in and I asked to be transferred, that's when it went to "la la" land.

    I finally realized that the game was actually in SD on FSN Arizona, so I'm assuming it was meant to be JIP'd after the Reds/Pirates game that I'm assuming went long. Usually when a game is going to be JIP'd, it says so in the guide and if I tune to the channel anyway, I get that silly bitmap saying to come back when my team is playing in HD (They ARE! that's why I'm there, Dish just isn't broadcasting it in HD.).

    Done venting - Thank You.

    This is like the 10th time on the 3rd different thread that someone posted this and it is not true. The PQ of MLB.TV on a PS3 is really good.
    Really? Here is a video taken by my phone of my TV showing MLB.TV through my PS3. I just took a video a few minutes ago. I was watching a replay of the Giants and Rockies and switched to a live game between the Yanks and Jays. Tell me this is horrible.

    BTW, the color issues is due to filming with a phone. It has nothing to do with the color quality from steaming or from my TV

    And here is an older video shot last week before the latest MLB App update on the PS3. Before the update 1080p streaming put a white bar around the picture and made the picture smaller. You had to change the video output on your PS3 to 720p to remove the white frame.

    Here is live capture someone used to give a better image than what I get on a video of the TV through my phone. Tell me it is not HD. It is HD and really good PQ HD. Of course through the provider it is slightly better

    This video is from last year so the UI is last year's version
