US MLB as TV’s Future

Tom Evslin writes about the Major League Baseball website on the Internet:

Major League Baseball has taken a big step towards the future of what we now call TV. That future doesnt include channels. More importantly, it turns cablecos (and telcos trying to be cablecos) into dumb pipes. Theyre not going to like that but we will.

The service is good but not great. You cant use it like a DVR to record games you arent there to watch. Because the games arent recorded, you cant fast forward over the commercial spots (which, ironically, dont have commercials in them (yet)). You can buy archived games for $3.95 each and watch them however you like but these arent included in the subscription.
