Low bandwidth and MLB.tv


Recently moved to a town with no wireless 4G options until next year and living in an RV. My 3G internet connection (Sprint SmartCard I plug into PC or laptop) has less than 200 kbps where MLB.tv needs 700+ for video and 500+ for audio. I've searched LL for ideas and have read all posts relating to this but found no answer.

Also have tried buying a smartphone but bandwidth is still way too low even though the salesperson said It'd be fine. Verizon, RadioShack, Best Buy kids have no answer unless I move into a house with cable or high speed internet wired into it. Even looked into an RV dish (both Direct and Dish) but they say high speed internet is not an option. Have stayed in some expensive RV resorts with WiFi powerful enough to get the video, no problem, but I'm not at one currently that has WiFi.

I know some people can get away with below minimum bandwidth and still get audio and/or video okay but don't want to buy MLB.tv (either audio or video) and not get it (thus losing the $$). Tired of looking at stupid GameDay animation. Any ideas out there?
