Just switched it again to another channel, one that nobody else in the vicinity is using for their router. After disconnecting and reconnecting to the wifi, the stream now is great. Maybe its just that its been bad all night, but I think its clearer right now than its ever been for me.The whole season the stream on my PC has been at least decent, with a few isolated shitty games. Yesterday I switched the channel on router for the 2.4Ghz to 11 to fix some chromecast issues. Now for the second straight game the image is terrible and the stuttering freezing is far more regular. Not having any noticeable problems with web stuff otherwise.
So is this a channel problem, or just a string of bad luck with the stream?
So you're getting the feed on your pc and sending that to the tv via chromecast rather than getting it directly on the chromecast?I use chromecast from my PC to TV, generally w/o incident for MLBtv. It does stall/stutter on occasion - just a few seconds here or there which does add up and by the end of a game I'm often a few batters behind live (and I think this is just a function of crappy rural internet and nothing to do w/ chromecast). But I find the chromecast experience preferable to running the MLBtv app on my smart tv - which buffers like crazy (and since I'm in market - I need the VPN software on my PC to get the Sox anyhow - but the chromecast is still preferable for watching out of market games too).
Yeah, the almost half an inning of today's game I was able to stomach was vastly superior in quality.There was an update to the app I applied yesterday. SSS warning, but it has been better since... I've tried a couple games in short spurts and they've streamed a lot better than before.
Also, does the $9.99 package not allow you to watch on the app on the Firestick. I purchased this for my girlfriend's son (they cut the cord on cable), but I assumed he could watch on the Firestick, but last night he said he couldn't, he could only watch on the iPad or lap, etc.I'm still confused by the postseason package that they are selling. You can pay $9.99 for all postseason games, but then you can only watch said games if you have some of the approved cable providers.
U.S. and Canada users watch every Postseason game on demand 90 minutes after each game ends. International users watch every Postseason game LIVE.
I've been trying to dig up information on EI through my local provider (Cox) but they have nothing about pricing or how the service works. It's "out of season" and no one can tell me when that will change or how the service will work in conjunction with MLB.TV.Okay, new season.
Question--thinking of doing MLB EI this year, and that apparently comes with MLB.TV. I've had MLB.TV in the past, so how difficult will it be to sync up my new EI package through Verizon, with my existing MLB.TV account?
My girlfriend's kid loves baseball and I let him use the log-in for MLB.TV. This shouldn't be an issue right?
Assuming you're watching on pc you can get rid of the delay on any of the 3 players by turning off the dvr in the settings. If you're watching on any other device you're stuck with the delay as far as I know.Not sure if I will even get MLBTV this year, it was hot mess last season. The video player keep stuttering and crapping out for the default player. The classic is on a 90 second delay.
The spring training broadcast games still have the same results.
This is the Follow Your Team feature which they haven't outlined. However, I think it will function like any of the streaming channels that requires proof of your regular TV subscription.I'm still confused about this blackout stuff. I keep reading that 2017 is the year that you can watch local games, but I'm also seeing the opposite.
I have a subscription to NESN through my cable provider. But I would like to watch baseball games with one of my streaming devices just for convenience sake. Can I do this without a VPN and all that junk?
Yes it's also giving me hell too, the constants stutter and looping back. I got that last year as well. They need to revamp the entire streaming system, no other streaming service gives me this much issues.For the second year in a row, I've had to spend nearly an hour on the phone because they screwed up my blackout location. I'm in NC, so I should be blacked out of WAS and BAL. I couldn't watch PHI and CIN on Monday. It's very frustrating. Last year it was Braves games that were blocked.
Also, anyone noticing the usual stuttering and jumping back 15 seconds? This was happening to me during the Sox game. I don't understand how this keeps happening when MLB Advaced Media is so good at what they do.
This is probably not their fault. They're just using the location information your ISP is providing.For the second year in a row, I've had to spend nearly an hour on the phone because they screwed up my blackout location.

No, it's their issue. Both years they've confirmed that my IP was giving my location in NC, but for some reason I was blocked from BAL/WAS along with additional teams for some reason.This is probably not their fault. They're just using the location information your ISP is providing.
It's absolutely their fault. Using IP addresses to attempt to discern physical location is moronic and inherently broken.
Same shit for me on my Roku from home. I have a blazing fast connection, yet MLB.tv is the only thing that sucks. Yet again. I love it SO much but I cannot understand how it doesn't work worth a shit half the time.Watched the first 4 innings on Roku before continuing on my Nexus tablet. Horrible experience, especially on the tablet. Buffered multiple times on Roku. Constantly froze and jumped back multiple batters on Nexus. I probably had to close and re-open the Sox game 10 times from the 4th in on. This shit is getting old. My connection is fast and never buffers on any other apps.
