    I can't give you an exact amount of data because each game can be longer or shorter than another one, but as long as you have at least the $25 iPhone data feature you should be good.
    If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

    It's not a matter of if you win or lose, it's how you assign the blame

    Amazing, I buy a 50inch to watch the NFL, and you want to use a phone! I word of advice, don't throw it across the room if the game is rigged.

    Yeah, it should be watched in HD on a big screen!!!
    I usually support government regulation, but It is unfortunate that the government over-regulated and killed the AT&T/ T-Mobile Merger
    The best explanation of the pricing nutiness in the industry.
    Why Sprint and T-Mo will always suck.
    The only way to end the pricing insanity is to eliminate contracts and subsidies.
    I want Wifi calling on AT&T.
    If you text while driving, you're an idiot. End of story.

    I can tell you that watching replays through the AB 2011 app takes about 5-6MB per minute. Not sure about mlb tv but I would imagine it is similar.

    Just tried mlb.tv today (they have a free game of the day). With the Android app, it used about 15 MB for 5 minutes. That's approximately 180 MB/hr. For a 4 hour game, expect to use about 720 MB.

    I would never use mlb.tv though. I'd never, ever subscribe to it, until they cut the crap about the blackout restrictions. Just put a Slingbox at home and you can watch your favorite announcers no matter where you are.
