I have premium and it's working much better than it did last year for me. The 800k and 1.2mb feeds do each make a progressive difference when you watch full screen (which for me too is really 3/4 screen). I think the new Microsoft player they have is improving reliability. At least for me so far. The combination of Stattracker and MLB TV is going to insure that I accomplish nothing w/ my life for the next six months.
