I had mlb.tv last year and loved the access to the games, however the picture wasnt great.

is the mlb.tv premium alot better? The price difference isnt huge but is it worth it?

mlb.tv is 400k
mlb.tv premium is either 800k or 1.2mb

is the premium package worth it?

Yeah. The picture is better and the $1 more it costs a week is well worth it.

Agreed. If you are comfortable that your internet connection/provider can handle the extra bandwidth, the picture quality is vastly superior.

Yea its worth it although the product is buggy and sucky and promises more then it can come through with.

Still its nice to be able to watch games whereever there is a computer.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Yup, for me the mlb.tv premium quality is worth the extra $.

You've probably noticed, but they've got a deal running through the end of May - use a MasterCard to subscribe and get your second month free:

I was on a recurring payment plan, but just canceled in order to renew and take advantage of the offer after my current billing cycle finishes this month.

Yes the quality in picture is twice as good IMO. I've been having a lot of problems with it this year though. I've had problems with the feed "pausing" every so often, sometimes more than others, but it gets annoying. And I've had some problems using the premium feed as well. I'd try to switch to a different game, and I was unable to use the 1.2mb feed. Other than that, I'm very pleased with it. The difference in picture is worth the extra $!!

Any of you other guys having the pausing problems?? :-?
