I watched a ton of both baseball and hockey--but mostly Flyers and Phillies (which, in my Virginia exile, I wouldn't have gotten otherwise), but others as well.

A few points: 1) It isn't cheap--and the value probably depends on whether you get the Flyers locally, and how much out-of-market stuff you anticipate watching; 2) I never received any games in HD--though the listings said I should. This might have been a technical error, but since I was getting the service for free, I couldn't very well call. Others can vouch for this.
I get Comcast Sportsnet but Comcast Network so there are a few games each year that I don't get to see. I watch games on NBCSN and NHL Network but I feel like they show the same few teams a lot of the time and most western teams get no love. I'll wait to see what others say about the HD. If the games aren't in HD that might be a big turning point in my decision.
