I wouldn't go that far. We have a Roku and I watched some of the C-USA baseball tourney games on ESPN3 with that. The quality was good most of the time, but also would become fuzzy at times. Also froze and buffered several times. Maybe it's just our internet, but I wouldn't say it's "as good as real TV."

I rarely have problems with the picture but nothing irks me like the lag. You will get a twitter update or iPhone push notification about a big play or a score before you see it on your TV, phone or computer. Happens with MLB.tv, NHL Game Center, and MLS Live as well.

Correct and anyone that says its even close must have a really bad TV. I understand if streaming is all you have...its great. But clear, good motion, HD you are not getting. The reason I bought 3 of the 4 55inch or higher TVs is the picture makes you feel you are right there.

You do not get that with streaming. A movie, yes. Fast moving sports, no.

Every game on an HD channel is never happening so ESPN3 is close enough for me. And a huge step up as far as quality, accessibility, and ease of use compared to the awful cusa.tv or searching for pirated feeds of games.

As many as we can get on ESPN-2-U-News, CBS Sports, FS1 etc. and the rest on ESPN3 should be the goal.
