What do you do when three of your teams play at the same time?

Tonight(4-25-18):
MLB: Tampa Bay @ BALT. ORIOLES(only comment-Yawn !!!)
NBA:WASH. WIZARDS @ Toronto(Game # 5,first round)
NHL:TOR. MAPLE LEAFS @ Boston(Game # 7,first round)

I have two TV's in my living room plus one PC and in my nearby kitchen I have one TV,one PC and one lap top.

Plus I have DVD/Blu ray regularly scheduled program's which is priority one(even over sports teams).

So I guess I will watch the Leafs on my main TV in the living room while I will watch the Wizards on the kitchen TV while the Orioles will be watched on my kitchen PC.

If I sit at a certain angle in the kitchen I can watch everything at the same time.

Priortize and channel flip. April Baseball would not even be in the rotation.

Playoffs >>>>> regular season game (with 2 bad teams)

Game 7 of playoffs > game 5 of playoffs (unless its a deciding game, which it isn't here)

If you have a DVR, record the BB game and watch later (while trying to avoid spoilers). A bonus is you'll save lots of time by skipping ads, timeouts, breaks between quarters/halves, and ref debates.

Baseball doesn’t start until September, game 7 until it’s decided, then game 5 from the start via DVR.

I do have MLB.TV and can watch the replay's at anytime.

I was wondering about ESPN+ since I already have MLB.TV do you get charged again for it if you attempt to watch it on their format or do they automatically know that you are a current subscriber. Another thing about ESPN+ is that you are allowed 5 streams at a time but with MLB.TV app you are only allowed three so can you still watch 5 games at a time on ESPN+. I might call and ask them.

Update:You need to get the MLB.TV subscription through ESPN+ to watch games through their format unless it's their free game of the day.

I mean I'm an Orioles and Wizards fan and I'm not even sure the O's game would register. Maybe I'd flip it on during commercials or if the Wiz are getting blown out.

Unless you're an alien and have 2 favorite teams in one sport it's generally easy to prioritize what gets watched based off of time of season and importance of the game.

Re: What do you do when three of your teams play at the same time?

I had this dilemma with the Flyers, Sixers and Phillies a few weeks ago.

-The most important game was on my TV (The Flyers were fighting for a playoff spot)

-I had the Sixers streaming on my phone (They clinched a playoff spot but were on a 10 game winning streak).

-I switched back to the Phillies on my TV every commercial break to see the score (It was April Baseball, so it was a meaningless game of 162).

-I'll be honest, I don't like watching multiple sporting events at once cause I can't really enjoy flipping back and forth.
