thumb-2

The 2014 Major League Baseball season is now in full swing, which means it’s time to sit back and enjoy watching America’s pastime. If you’re planning on enjoying the Cardinal’s game from the comfort of your own home, we can help you find the best viewing options.

1. Major League Baseball has their fans in mind with an awesome At Bat app for Apple iOS. The app was updated in the offseason and now includes improved features such as inline video, league-wide scoreboard, and expanded instant replay. The free app comes with the basics, but with a paid subscription you have access to every out-of-market regular season game. $2.99 for a monthly plan or a one-time annual fee of $19.99 for the entire 2014 season all the way through the World Series.

2. Not at home or don’t have access to cable? No problem! You can watch the game through your desktop, gaming counsel, streaming device and more through MLB.TV. Users can choose from several different screen options and the video quality and playback is excellent. The MLB.TV subscription service is available for $109 a year for a standard, web-only access plan, or $129 a year for the premium version. The premium plan allows you to stream the games and watch on many different devices.

3. Are you a cable customer? Certain cable and satellite providers are offering MLB Extra Innings and including MLB.TV with the package for less than $200 a year. With MLB Extra Innings, you’ll have access to almost 100 out-of-market games a week, most of them available in HD. Can’t decide what game to watch? You can preview up to 8 games at once!

4. With WatchESPN, you can watch any game broadcasted on ESPN or ESPN recaps anytime, anywhere! The WatchESPN app is free and with your cable or satellite subscription, you should have full access to your favorite ESPN shows and live events. ESPN3 is available for Free from participating internet providers. You can check HERE to see if your provider is on the list.

thumb-17

Spring and summer months mean warm and beautiful weather, relaxing on the patio, and enjoying nature. It also means the start of baseball season! You don’t have to sacrifice the weather or our beloved Cardinals, just bring the indoors-outdoor with an outdoor television. SunBrite TV’s are the only time-tested TVs in the world that are designed and built for permanent outdoor installation. They are completely weatherproof with superior brightness. Their durable screens can endure temperatures as hot as 122 degrees and as cold as -24 degrees Fahrenheit, allowing you to leave your television outside all year long!

We understand it can be a lot of work setting up an outdoor living area, but SunBrite and The Sound Room created a product to help ease the process. The SunBrite TV Wireless HD Transceiver can send full 1080p HD content wirelessly to televisions. That’s right, no cables! As long as your outdoor television is within 150 feet, you’ll be watching HDTV in no time.

One of our favorite parts of the spring and summer months are backyard BBQ’s. There’s nothing better than spending time with those you love, cold drink in your hand, and enjoying some delicious food while listening to some great music. We have a complete line of Sonance outdoor speakers that deliver crystal clear sound with a rustic design that allows them to blend into your outdoor space. Now you can listen to the game on KMOX or enjoy your favorite tunes outdoors.

If you aren’t sure what steps to take first in creating your outdoor area, we are here to help! Come talk to one of our Electronic System Designers who can help you transform your patio or deck into a relaxing outdoor oasis.
