MLB TV and a macbook...
« Topic Start: May 21, 2007, 11:20:32 PM »
Anyone out there have a macbook and a subscription to MLB.TV?  I just bought a macbook and am trying to get it all set up and working. However, MLB.TV doesn't work with quicktime.  I'm supposed to be able to download Windows Media Player so I can watch Nats games again.  But, I can't figure out how to install it.  I've got it downloaded but I can't figure out  how to install it.  Anyone have any experience in this area?

I don't own a Mac, but because MLB.TV uses WMV, you'll need a program called "Flip4Mac" which is basically a WMV add-on for Quicktime that will let you view MLB-TV streams on your Mac.

You can get Flip4Mac here: http://www.flip4mac.com/

MLB.TV kicks ass!  Especially for those who get the Red Sox on TV.

What's worse, having to watch the Red Sox who play really good baseball every day or having to watch the Royals who ummm...don't?

I wouldn't watch a Red Sox game to save my life (unless they were playing the Nationals). 

Which bring up a point to be made.  How many people absolutely HATE the Royals, or the Pirates, or the Devil Rays?  Not many.  How many people absolutely HATE the Red Sox, or the Yankees, or the Mets?  A ton.  So I guess it's a good thing when people hate your team.

That's true, I'd rather be hated than to not have anyone care.  I guess to most people we're in that same boat, but the Royals can be just brutal at times.
