You cannot compare physically being in the presence of Christ vs. being separated by a TV screen. I'm sure there is some benefit to it regardless (especially on days that you aren't obligated to go), but I wouldn't say it's the same.

Either way, you can also try some of the other locations. I tend to like the Mexican stream. The homily won't be in English, but everything else is the same.

Absolutely! Don't get me wrong; my family and I go to Mass every Sunday. It is a NO parish, but thankfully a reverent one. Majority receives the Eucharist by mouth, many mantillas, etc. Approaching the EWTN level of solemnity. If all NO Masses were that reverent, there'd be no issue. The issue is that a 35 mile (minimum ) drive in DC area traffic with four younguns for Mass at noon or 130 isn't conducive to a prayerful and holy experience. They get hungry, tired, etc. Not making excuses, but it's my cross for the next few years. And yes, watching via computer is no replacement for being there in person.

Not sure how close you are to DC, but there are also a bunch of TLMs in Northern Virginia.

Thanks. I'm south of DC, luckily. Some of those I can attend, but mostly it's an issue of timing, I truly hate to say.
