Well, it looks like the update for LG BluRay players was deployed last week. It was a huge update as it took quite a bit of time to download and install.
My first attempt however, only lasted through about an inning before I got the same “cannot connect” error that I had been receiving. Subsequent attempts have met with better success.
However, the picture quality is terrible. Why can Netflix stream a high-quality SD 16×9 presentation, and VUDU delivers crystal clear 1080p streaming (on a wireless connection) but MLBTV’s picture quality is crap?
My guess is that MLB has no intention of satisfying its user base, only collecting more revenue from the poor saps who have no other option for watching the games.
Counting down to April 30th when I will cancel my subscription. (Afraid to do it now, because I’m sure they will cut me off immediately even though I’m paid up for the month.)
