MLB.tv - Best time to buy?

I waited and bought mlb.tv premium over father's day weekend last year. They ran a special for $49.95. That gives you more than 60% of the season for less than 40% of the full season price.

Assuming they run this special again, it's easily the best deal if you don't mind missing the early part of the season.

The premium is definitely worth the higher price though. And that wasn't the product that sold for that price.

Not trying to get into a pissing contest, but yes sir it absolutely was. I was able to watch any game, on any device - mobile or otherwise - subject to blackout rules in the Dallas market.

It was a helluva deal and I plan on holding out for it again this season.

See this roku forum for the details of the offer last year.

Wow. I am surprised then. My bad. I'd say holding out was of value to you.

Has anyone had any issues with MLB.TV?

I dont see the need to spend $150/month for cable when I can pretty much stream/download everything I need.

There have always been issues MLB.TV. It's not perfect but it's great.

Of course, if you're asking should you pay for the official service instead of illegally pirating the information... only you can make that decision.

I plan on donating $130 to MLB.... but as far as the movie studios.... :vader:

The higher/more cosntant your bandwith, the less the problems.

Got a new TV that has an ethernet cord right into the router. I always get pretty smooth pictures streaming Hulu Plus and Netflix as well as other apps.

You should be good then. I think it runs at a constant 500kpbs. It's a little frustrating when I'm out and running it on my 3G/iphone. But even that usually isn't too bad.

Just go ahead and buy it. It's a better deal than MLB Extra Innings and you can watch it on various devices: phones, tablets, pc's, laptops, TV's via Roku or AppleTV. Anywhere, anytime! The picture is good as long as you have a speedy internet connection.

If you live in the MASN area and want to see the O's, forget it. MLB.tv is not for you. You'll be blacked out all the time. Its worth it if you want to watch baseball in general, or live out of market.

Good point! I get blacked out when they are in town playing the enemy.

Edit: I realize how that sounded.

Are you saying that since I live in Baltimore I can not watch Os games on MLB.TV?

That sounds odd, couldn't I just watch the opposing teams feed!?

Nope. Any game involving a team in that region is blacked out by all feeds.

It's BS that you get charged in February for ST games. That should be free, especially when you've been a subscriber for years. I'm going to cancel until the season starts.

    • Have you seen the lineups? They are a joke. Hyde has to go too.     😎 Insomnia in progress. 
    • I have to admit I am all for resigning Burnes too, I just can't remember the last time the O's signed a free agent the other top teams wanted.  I don't think even Chris Davis fits that category because the O's were bidding against themselves.  Albert Belle?  I guess I'll just try to be hopeful.  I can't see Rubenstein making himself the public face of the franchise and then turning around and basically saying this is going to be my cash cow.  I guess we'll soon find out.  I have to admit I am looking forward to this way more than the election.  lol
    • It seems to me they should probably change their approach or the season will end up a disaster.  It’s frankly unexplainable they haven’t demoted/traded/DFA’d the players that aren’t performing.  It’s a joke management thinks this group of players has any chance of winning anything.  Imagine if they could just walk more..
    • Sorry I’m not Gretzky fan , lol . And don’t know any of his quotes. But I would love to hear it , if you can share.    Speaking of bullpen, I agree that ours needs to be augmented and upgraded.  The trade deadline is coming soon so……..
    • I agree. He's a major factor in our odds to win a World Series. Gotta go for it while you can and keep him if we can. I generally don't like big contracts and view them as over pays. I criticized the Albert Belle signing, I hated the Ubaldo Jimenez signing, and I didn't feel comfortable with the Chris Davis extension. But to me those players did not have a solid consistent careers as a pure Ace player like Burnes does. Burnes is a player I feel confident that you know what you're getting, even if we can expect a decline by age 35. Up to that point, you're getting a perennial Cy Young competitor to anchor your entire Pitching Staff and give you a chance to win when you need it most just like he did tonight in the game 3 rubber match in a series against division rivals. This series against the Red Sox, Burnes was effectively the Stopper and got us back on track. I'm all for resigning Corbin Burnes! It's on my Christmas wish list!
    • I agree. He's been such a key part of the team competing this year. Especially since we don't have a good bullpen, Corbin Burnes has been HUGE for us. For us to keep the window to a World Series chance open, we have to at least try to retain his services. Ya never know if you don't try! What's that Wayne Gretsky quote about shots you don't take?
