    The YouTube TV Thread

    Speaking of other cable carries... what's stopping cable companies like Comcast, Charter, Cox, etc from distributing their own OTT live TV option? Kind of like what AT&T (apparently?) has done with it's U-Verse TV and whatever they're calling their streaming AT&T option now. Whereas before -...

    What will happen to Directv going forward

    I remember when the space shuttle first launched and it had all of these fancy new advanced computers. It wasn't long before astronauts were packing laptops to use on the shuttle, because the laptps were faster than the computer systems integrated into the shuttle, but it was too expensive to...

    What will happen to Directv going forward

    I would disagree with this... although that doesn't mean that I'm right. I have a Smart TV ... everyone does ... the only time I used any of the apps on the TV itself was when I first turned the TV on and wanted to see what "cool" apps were on the TV. But never really used any of them, and now...

    What will happen to Directv going forward

    I'm wondering if AT&T shouldn't just focus on the streaming box, try to compete with Roku. With more and more streaming options, I think there's definitely some improvements that could be had with a streaming box. A remote with numbers may start becoming more beneficial with more streaming...

    AT&T TV National Launch

    Obviously they're not going to do that. But they don't care who your Internet is with. If you've got Comcast or Mediacom, they don't care that you'll run up against monthly data allowances streaming this. That's something for the consumer to figure out. While they may not necessarily stop...

    Marquee Sports Network

    Well, I'm not necessarily directly comparing mlb.tv/extra innings to RSN feeds. I'm just saying nobody buys mlb.tv or Extra Innings and never watches it. A lot of people buy (in the sense that it's including in their package) their RSN (and ESPN and FS1 and whatever) and never watch it. So...

    Marquee Sports Network

    To add to my point about RSNs eyes being bigger than their stomach. Consider the Extra Innings and MLB.tv offerings. The people that buy those packages... they want to watch baseball. Is there anybody that buys this package and then never watches a baseball game? (Maybe the super rich). But...

    Marquee Sports Network

    But it's not just $8.50 per month. It's probably upwards of $100/mo (if not more) for a TV package that includes that $8.50 to get the network. $12.75 is a lot less than $100/mo. Sure you get a lot more content for that $100/mo... but if it's content I don't watch... it's a waste of $100 (or...

    Marquee Sports Network

    This is what I've referred to as the ESPN problem before. ESPN's top execs like to look at their profit sheets "Holy Cow! We're wildly popular! We have over 70 billion subscribers! Let's start a dozen new ESPN networks!" But in actuality they might have 700 people actually watching the...

    Marquee Sports Network

    But wouldn't it really just be Comcast customers within the Chicago Cubs territory? If you live in say... Pittsburgh, if you want to watch the Cubs games you're going to get those games with Extra Innings or MLB.tv. I'm just really surprised that Sinclair did not develop an OTT delivery system...

    Yankees to stream games without MLB package

    Replying because giving this post just a thumbs up doesn't do it enough justice. I agree with everything written in this post. MLB is so worried about it's decline in viewership and people that care about baseball... they need to take a look in the mirror and see how much this "local team...

    Yankees to stream games without MLB package

    Unless you happen to be lucky enough to have at least two teams in your "market" and DirecTV only gives you one of those teams unless you buy the absurd Sports Pack for $13/mo just for the privilege to watch the team that is in your "market" MLB really should clamp down on this market territory...

    Yankees to stream games without MLB package

    I would assume. But MLB likes to use fuzzy logic in determining what areas are in whose team's market... so who knows what this really means.

    Yankees to stream games without MLB package

    Right. I'm not in the Yankees' market. Nor do I really care about the Yankees. But there are a few "local" teams on Fox Sports regional Networks. I'd love to see Sinclair offer something like a: Enter your zip code (to see how many "in-market" teams you are suppose to get), then charge a...

    Yankees to stream games without MLB package

    But you can get HBO without Amazon Prime. So the question still is... why can't they offer this as stand alone? If all I was interested in was watching the Yankees, why should I be forced to pay for Amazon Prime too? I just don't see how that is all that different from forcing you to have a...
