MLB ei worth $215???
I used to get EI. But since you do not get every game, I decided to drop it. There could be days when you will get all of the available games. Then there are days when there could be 10 games on, and you'll get one or two.
Huh? Other than the Fox window, basically every game is on.
It is to me, you need to decide for yourself. Sign up and find out, next year you'll have a decision to make.
Do you think I can get a better deal? I'm only a couple months in on my 2 year but never late on bills.
I thought that the games on the MLB channel and the ones on ESPN were blacked out as well.
I called to cancel, telling them I was going with MLB.tv because it was about hundred dollars cheaper. They offered a sixty dollar credit, but I didn't take it and am trying MLB.TV this year.
However, I am a longtime subscriber with both EI and Sunday Ticket so YMMV.
I think it depends on the exclusivity.
MLB.tv is a better deal. It's less expensive & "portable". You can watch on any computer, most TV streaming boxes, and most smartphones (if you buy the app).
Personally I'm only interested in the Phillies. With Fox, ESPN, and the local coverage of the Dodgers plus the two free weeks of MLB I managed to have at least a game a week available last year without signing up for MLB.
guys there is already an mlb extra innings thread, if people want to sign up or not that is there choice.
this thread is meangless.
as far as the 215 price alot of us have already gotten deals.
To me it is not economically wise. To get your moneys worth you have to watch all the games they offer and you and I know that your not going to watch them all. It's just like having all the premium movie channels. You can't watch all the movies. That's just my opinion.
I think a lot depends on your location and who your favorite team is. Only 2 teams claim Florida (Rays and Marlins) and I'm a Braves fan, so really the only games I don't see are the ones on Fox Saturday Baseball.
I only watch baseball in HD.
Thats just the way it is.
MLB.TV on a ROKU is crap.
Picture Quality and the Red Sox's are key to my mony spending.
So matter of fact. I like that in a man.
Looks like if you subscribe to MLB TV this year, the moble app is free. At least that is what I got when I renewed.
I subscribe to both mlb.tv and MLB EI. You can't beat MLB EI, the picture quality is great and on D* if the game on the RSN is in HD then you get it in HD. You also get home and away broadcasts (for the most part). The only issue on MLBEI might be the padres this year due to the new fox agreement. I follow 2 teams and DVR most games to accommodate my viewing times. You MUST record games on D* using the RSN channel NOT the MLBEI channels. I have had issues where games are blank or you just get the D* logo for 3 hours on the MLBEI games.
I also sub to MLB.TV for the iphone streaming, spring training games, and archive (if i forgot to dvr a game, etc). The picture quality on MLB.tv is good but nowhere as good as MLBEI. I also have streaming issues from time to time even on a FIOS 20/20 connection. You also have the dumb 90 min rule, in which you have to wait 90 min to watch a game if the game has ended. A lot of the time for the west coast games MLB.tv does not monitor and will go well beyond the 90 min.
I sub to both, have for years.
It all depends on your needs. If you are away from home and streaming the games, via a Mobile venue is your priority, then MLBTV best suits you.
If you do the bulk of your watching at home via the Home TV set then MLBEI is the far better product, PQ is quite a bit better with EI.
Obviously, I'm a Yankees fan. Also a Jets fan and I've become a Giants fan over the last few years. If I were to move from NJ to someplace that doesn't get those broadcasts I'd sign up for both the EI and the football packages.
I'd guess the majority of the folks that sign up for that programming are in that position. Aside from that, unless you're a big better, I can't see any reason for getting all those games.
The last football season was the first time in years that I haven't bet on NFL games. I considered getting the football package and watching every game, every week. Then I realized how much work that would be and nixed that idea. But for some guys who bet heavy that must be a necessary work tool. I think.
My 5 Tuners will help out A Lot this season
