Re: Shomi the money!
@Liz G,

That's the point I'm at now. I feel like TWC is throttling my Internet bandwidth because I refuse to upgrade to their 3x play package.

Re: Shomi the money!
No problem,  for me it is a cost trade  off between individual sports subscriptions and the cost of the cable/TV providers. Whichever wins that war wins me...

Re: Shomi the money!
@ Liz G,

Excellent. That's exactly what I was looking to hear. Thanks.
For the most part, WatchESPN will cover me. For the other add-ons, I'd have to already have the extra subscriptions, which I don't.

Re: Shomi the money!
Thanks for the tip about the Plex software...I didn't know about it.  I will look into it for a nice upgrade.

Re: Shomi the money!
@kbode...the day the NFL wakes up and has a Roku channel I will finally cancel TV.  I would pay for their service and the MLB.  Because I am stuck with TV for NFL I don't bother with an MLB purchase on Roku.  I do however, have my AFL (Aussie Rules Football) subscription so that I can watch on my computer.  Roku doesn't carry it unfortunately.

Re: Shomi the money!
I've been consistently impressed with MLB offerings over Roku and the like. I'm still waiting for the day when the NFL wakes up, ditches the DirecTV (soon to be AT&T) exclusivity contract, and makes their content as easy and inexpensive to access -- in the process opening the door to many millions more paying customers.

Re: Shomi the money!
I agree. I have the Roku 3 and use it with Plex software, and it does considerably more than even the next-generation gaming consoles -- which are supposed to be dedicated to, and specifically aimed at, the next-generation connected living room. I've tinkered some with the Apple TV and the GUI seems clunky in comparison (strange, for a company so loved when it comes to design).

Re: Shomi the money!
Again though, such a service if done right would have provided better value than the traditional massive bundles of cable channels, causing companies to lose money. They can't build a better moustrap in this instance because everyone would leave their old, outdated system of over-priced channel bundles behind...

Re: Shomi the money!
I am a huge sports fan (working on fantasy football draft at the moment). According to Roku,  "Roku streams the biggest selection of live streaming sports packages out there, including WATCH ESPN, MLB.TV, NBA League Pass Broadband, NHL GameCenter, MLS LIVE, UFC, WWE, and more. International sports offerings on Dishworld include Indian Premier League cricket and Brazilian pro soccer."


They use to have Aussie Rules Football on MHz but no more.  The issue isn't really Roku but really the NFL, etc who control where the games are broadcast.  So hopefully they will follow the MLB and create their own streaming channel  for a reasonable subscription fee.

Re: Shomi the money!
If Iran's State Broadcaster can figure out a way to get into the game, it seems to me that the large players amongst us can do no less--even though Time Warner did not do the Industry too much favor when it suffered an outage that impacted its' customers in its' entire system.
