The MLB.TV media player supports both SD and HD quality streams adapted to your Internet connection. If you have a constant dedicated connection of 3 Mbps (3000 Kbps) or above you will receive our highest quality streams. If your bandwidth is between 1.8 and 3 Mbps (1800 and 3000 Kbps) you will receive Standard Definition streams.

For MLB.TV on connected devices, a high speed broadband Internet connection with a minimum of 3 Mbps (3000 Kbps dedicated bandwidth is required to stream MLB.TV content in HD). For 60 FPS HD streams, we recommend 5 Mbps (5000 Kbps). High Quality streaming allows you to access up to 5 Mbps streams with 60 frames per second on some connected devices.
