I wish I could buy the Sunday Ticket online only and keep my cable package.

 

+1 - Although DirecTV's promo is for 5 free months of their basic programming package. What's to stop you from subscribing but just not installing any of the hardware, then cancelling before you start paying monthly fees?

You sign a 2 year contract I believe

IIRC, it comes along with the HD upgrade, the basic Sunday Ticket package doesn't include it. I always get the upgrade, so if this has changed i wouldn't be aware.

 

Pic quality is decent on a laptop. You can only watch on one machine at a time...we tried logging in on a second machine and it shut the feed off the first one after a second or two. I doubt i would go out and buy it just so i could watch a separate broadcast, but since i get it with the hd package, i will usually use it to tune into the RZC, while I watch the game in HD.

I'm all for watching in the comfort of my apartment, but $350 just seems like it's to much.

 

I've watched a couple of MLB games online through their league's package and the quality is pretty good. There is an option to download a HD converter and it makes a difference in picture quality.

But could you pull up multiple games in different windows? Being able to quickly alt-tab between games would be cool, though I guess it would totally drain your bandwidth.

Nothing is cheap in Manhattan, but that seems very overpriced.

 

If what they are offering is what was provided to DirectTV ST subscribers the quality is not bad at all. However, the PC access is included in the ST deal (at least it was last year) and here they are asking you to fork over $350 for something satelite owners are getting for free as a throw in to a $250-$300 commitment.

 

I wouldn't break the law myself, but if you could find a friend who had ST and doesn't use the PC feature you could ask him to give you the download and password info.
