    NFL is more exciting to me. I dont watch a whole lot of regular season but I do watch the post season if Boston is in it.

    That's cool Rich. Just don't expect the Netflix streams to be 1080p or 7.1 digital audio just because you're streaming them through a Blu-ray player though.

    I can understand you getting that mlb thing, considering where you are and the team you root for. But I've never quite understood where people got the time to watch so many baseball games. If it was someone betting on games, I could kinda understand it, but there are so many teams and so many variables in baseball that a person would have to devote his life to watching games just to be able to win enough to live on.

    The football package I understand. I think that football is the one sport that really utilizes TV well and you can learn a lot by watching relatively few games.

    It would be interesting to see a breakdown of the numbers of each package sold in total. Just a WAG, but I'd pick the football package to have more subscribers.

    Anyway, it'd be a whole lot cheaper to subscribe to whatever package you need to get the Yes Network and start rooting for the Yankees. Or can't you get that where you are? Thought it was nationwide.

    Shame you have to buy a huge number of team's games just to get the team you want to watch.

    I think that MLB EI is definitely a package for folks who are fans of out of market teams. For instance, my wife is a big time Yankees fan and we live in Seattle. No, it's not like we watch any of the other teams.

    As far as YES is concerned, we have it with FiOS but they do not show the Yankees games nationally. Instead, they show other programming during the games. Hopefully this will change in the future.

    I agree with you about NFL ST though. While I'm an out of market Steelers fan, I will occassionally watch other key games - although I usually watch the Red Zone Channel when the Steelers aren't playing.
