Microsoft Sliverlight is dead

New, 2 comments

If you watch the games on MLB.tv there is a change this year, MLB has dropped Microsoft's Sliverlight.

MLB.com no longer uses Microsoft's Silverlight to stream games to its 500,000 subscribers. This season fans will watch live, on-demand video via Adobe's Flash player.

Thank God!

I don't know if Adobe Flash will be the answer to all of our out of market prayers, but there is no way it could be worse.

I missed the first week of last season trying to watch it using Sliverlight and I finally unistalled that piece of sh.....junk.

Maybe, just maybe, MLBAM (Major League Baseball Advanced Media) actually did something to improve the out of market viewing experience.

Time will tell.
