Now suspend your disbelief for a minute, and imagine the following scenario. What would you say if you had the following service available online?
- A mix channel where you could watch up to nine games all once on your screen (or you could watch one at a time, or a few at a time — your choice),
- High-quality streaming video compatible on a PC/Mac,
- HD quality picture (where available),
- Live game DVR functionality,
- Live game picture-in-picture,
- Player tracker,
- Home and away feeds (where available),
- Live game radio option (where available),
- Archived and condensed games,
- Best of all, all games would be available online (unless you live in the area near the home team — in which case, the live Internet streaming would be blacked out), and
- Last but not least, a very reliable service that would be dependable and would actually work flawlessly.
It would be legal, high quality and the features would be like nothing you’ve seen before and not available anywhere else.
Now, honestly, how much would you be willing to pay for this per month? Think about that, and then keep that price in your head (and don’t change it).
After you have that price in your head that you’d be willing to pay, click the link to read the rest of the story to find out all of the details.
Now, what would you say if I told you that this incredible online service already exists? Except that it’s not available for Premier League followers, but it’s instead available for Major League Baseball fans.
MLB.TV Premium is available for an incredibly low price of $19.95 per year. And unlike the Premier League, baseball doesn’t have an average of ten games per week. Instead there are literally 100’s of games per week.
In addition to the annual subscription of just $19.95, you also need to get either a Boxee or Roku player to watch the live and archived games. The Roku player is $99 (which also allows you to watch movies and more, for an additional cost, if you’re interested).
To see the wealth of features available, take a minute and play this impressive video that showcases MLB.TV Premium. You can also watch these review videos on YouTube (here and you can see a great example of the mix/mosaic feature here).
Now, of course, this isn’t a baseball website. But the above example of MLB.TV Premium goes to show how much Premier League broadband coverage is in the stone age.
