MLB.tv on Roku?

The Royals finally are in a position to have a special year and I'd really like to watch all of their games this season. The Direct TV package, IMO, is outrageously priced at $225 dollars before tax but the alternative is MLB.tv through a streaming device at $129.99 for the season.

Unfortunately, I do not own a device with the MLB.tv app (I recently purchased three Sony Blu-ray players but MLB only supports Samsung). So, I can purchase a device like a Roku for $55 (720p) or Roku 3 for $89 (1080p). The MLB forums are filled with people that say it's great and a much better product than DTV's "Extra Innings".

Any experiences? Thanks in advance!

Dane Ive used Roku before and it worked fine. Spend the extra $30 or whatever and get the 1080p one.

I stream mlbtv thru my PS3 now and it works great. One very underrated aspect of it is it removes all the unnecessary local graphics and add-ons like scrolling bars and junk. I hate watching games and have to keep seeing the same crappy info scroll past on the bottom of a screen for three hours. Gives me a migraine

Also when Im at work or just messing around I can pop the game on my phone or a tablet.

Get the Roku it's great for finding and adding all kids of pirated media!!!!(I kid I kid! )

Actually between the Roku and the apple device I would ask which has better aesthetics. I.e. which can you hide better in your setup or not stand out.

As per 1080P v 720P devices, for the MLB I doubt the 1080P will make a difference any time soon. Hell broadcast TV is really only 720P, given the high motion nature of sports they'll probably stay at 720Pish for a while because of bandwidth concerns.

I tried to find out what bitrate they were transmitting at and the best I can find is that for the highest quality they recommend a 3Mb/s internet connection. Now that doesn't really say they are transmitting at 3Mb/s but they might be. For 720P content at ~3Mb/s bitrate you probably won't notice much difference in visual quality between the streaming and the satellite feed.

The biggest question is in how much you use your internet for. If you use it for heavy bandwidth usages then the MLB streaming could become a quality issue if you are using heavy bandwidth somewhere else in the house. I'm betting that's probably not a concern but that's something to consider.

The only other outside issue to consider is if your internet provider has put into place monthly bandwidth caps like mobile devices. This isn't terribly common today for landline systems and most of the ones that exist are for very large bandwidth caps(again something I'd bet isn't a concern for you). But this trend will start to become more popular in the future.

Unless you're on a really small local internet provider who has pretty small bandwidth limits(i.e. pretty rare), you'd have to like be watching 100+ games a month to have this be an issue today.

You're most likely good to go once you decide a device for home.

Thanks to everyone!

I pussed out and bought the Extra Innings Package from DTV. They gave me $10 off a month for 12 months and $5 off for six months. So essentially, the package cost me $40 dollars and I'm able to view from all five TV's in the house, without dragging around a dongle.

Thanks again!

Oh yeah, Go Royals!

Um that is a hell of a deal if you ask me. I got DTV and would be down with that.

Did you send them a penis pic or something?

Just as a data point, I bought MLB.tv today as well. Excellent picture quality on both my Xbox and laptop, very impressed thus far.

I have a roku, and the picture is as good as your ISP allows it to be. Time Warner Cable for me, and at times it lags out bad.

MLB app on Roku is by far the worst app i have ever used on any tablet/phone/videogame console ever! Its a piece of shit. 1 out of 10, its a 1. The constant dropping of the stream is insane. its about 10 times per game.

Not for me, sounds like an isp issue. I get a fantastic HD picture and no drops or stuttering.

Also, when its going, the picture is great, it just sometimes boots me back to the roku homepage. Ok it does it alot during a game.
