Not yet, but I will, assuming MLS takes payment from my British account.
Hang on, I'll give it a try.
Job done. Now, Go Revs!!!
i am going to get it tonight sometime in time for tomarrow's games.
I did as soon as I saw the ad for it (around 2:30 pm).
Well, MLS made $200 bucks.
and the fans that are willing to pay are going to reap the benefits in the long run. with fewer p[eople watching (because the majority won't be willing to pay) they will get smoother streams with less buffering (unless mls decides to cut back the available bandwidth since there will be less demand)
Please clarify for the computer illiterate: if I purchase this plan, will I be able to see the games that are NOT on the direct kick package on my home computer? If so, what is the quality of the picture?
No, it's the same thing.
Looks as if there's only one game you can actually *watch* live on the internet this weekend, or in its entirety period. Or will paying customers be able to watch all 4 live/otherwhise?
Might hold onto my £11.96etc. for another week or so...
if the game is on ESPN(1/2) or ABC it won't be available to MLS Tv
my mythTV box picks up those games for me
I bought DK before the 2nd week. Recordin' many on the DVR.
DK isn't available where i am, and i wouldn't pay for a DVR "service" as mythTV is so much more featured
just need CableCard 1.0 and CableCard 2.0 compliant tuners to finally hit the market
Why? The price isn't going to go down next week.
Huh? You'll be able to watch all 3 of this weekend's non-ESPN games live on MLS's subscription service.
there's only 1 match this weekend not on espn/hdnet
You guys are brave. I can't sit at my computer for 2 hours + and watch a whole game in that small of a screen. DirectKick is way better if you can ger it.
Which I can't. Unfortunately, this year's media player doesn't offer as many choices of zoom size as last year's. Now it's the tiny screen, one slightly bigger or the watching through fog full screen. Last year there was an option of about half screen which was a good compromise between clarity and size.
After you open up the game in the MLS MediaPlayer right click on the game itself and click properties. In there you will see an mms:// link, copy that whole thing and paste it into your Windows Media Player. Now you can control the size you want a lot better. It is also helpful for giving you the ability to watch more than one game at a time.
I bought it for friend who lives in Germany
You can also paste into Real Player. I didn't notice any changes in the video, but the audio sounded clearer in RP.
Thanks Philly and Dpir, the 200% screen has been the best before now, but I'll try your suggestions maybe tomorrow night. I won't be watching any MLS tonight because I'm off down that big London tomorrow to watch the marathon.
Too bad I didn't read here first, just bought the MLSLive.tv to watch DCU@NY, but not being able to watch ESPN/ABC games is just crap then since those is almost the only matches I can watch since I live in Europe. Surely they should have had some note about this when registering, cause I looked everywhere and the only thing I could find was a link saying "Click here to view the complete schedule" which lead to http://www.mlsnet.com/MLS/mls/schedule/ and I assumed all matches there was matches that would be watchable, but guess not then... I hope the MLS is at least kind enough to be able to pay me my money back.
Sorry about that. Blackout restrictions were posted on the registration page. You can watch any MLS match that isn't on ESPN and HDNet.
Oh right, stupid me not thinking about that... I was just thinking blackouts for local areas in the US, never thought that it would affect international customers
