I have AT&T U-Verse so I use mlb.tv. I gave thought to switching back to Direct TV (I only switched because I had major internet issues in my old apartment aka they wouldn't give me high speed) for the sports packages but really, $195 is alot for non-HD games. When I moved away from NY and my teams, I ended up blowing a ton on that, NBA league pass, and NFL Sunday Ticket, it's too much for me. MLB.tv is kinda laggy for me on the HD setting but at least it's there. I mainly watch it in the standard vision because there's no difference between that and the crappy extra innings picture quality and the mlb.tv NexDef is laggy on my laptop. I'd rather watch a smooth lower quality game than high quality where the action happens in Southpark animation. I also like how I can just pay $20/month rather than $50 for 4 months, much friendlier on the wallet.
