Is MLB Extra Innings worth it?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby hooligan1 » Sun Apr 11, 2004 1:31 am

I just ordered (the night before the Yanks/D-Rays in Japan) MLB.TV from MLB.com. You can watch (usually) the full slate of games every day (with a few exceptions) on Windows Media Player or Quicktime Player for $15 bucks a month!! I have been loving it so far. As long as you don't mind watching on a screen smaller than your hand (I don't) then this really is the way to go......Good resolution, great audio. Just let it go while you're surfing the net. Good stuff!!

hooligan1, you made a mistake. I heard about this recently. Here's the deal:
MLB.TV is $14.95/month
MLB All Access is $19.95/month
But if you sign up for MSN Premium (for just $9.95/month), you get MLB All Access with it. Plus, the first 3 months of MSN Premium are free. So I signed up for MSN Premium, which will cost me $30 for the next 6 months, and I have MLB All Access included with it.

As a follow-up to the last message, go here:

Just below mid-screen, MSN Premium, $9.95/month, get 3 months free, with MLB.com All Access included.

It's a great deal, too good to pass up.

Extra Innings is totally worth it!!! You get to see all your players, you can watch them for a whole game or follow stat tracker and jump around when your guys are hitting. Best of all, you get to see some sweet baseball games, there's almost always a game worth watching on t.v.

I think the mlb.com video isn't that great but it's better than nothing. There's no reason not to sign up for the msnbc deal.

extra innings is worth it if you like to wager a little something on the games. It's great to check out the good pitching matchups, I think it's worth the $150. ;-D
these are not the droids your looking for

Extra Innings is no doubt worth it. I have a friend who buys it every year and we all LOVE it.... However, for the more fiscally aware (or unemployed, like me) MLB.TV is awesome, and waaay cheaper.

The video feeds for MLB.TV are pretty darn good. It is not choppy at all, it's just that the resolution is not super crisp and clear.... still not much to complain about for $15!! You can buy it by the month, just to try it out......

On my computer, it's a good picture in a box about 5" x 5". Smooth, not choppy. If I go full-screen, it's still a smooth picture but gets blurrier.
