What is the point,...
 
of the MLB subscription service if you can only see out of market games.

I don't get Fox Sports so I can never watch a Royals game. I was going to look into MLB TV but every Royals game isn't available to me. What a crock.

Might wanna check it out still. I can watch every game that is "blacked out" for me through my laptop, but not on my phone.

I bet you're brutal to waiters and waitresses, Guru. o:-)

If you're willing to pay a little you can look into a VPN. I use Hide My Ass and i'm able to get any game that is blacked out whether it's nationally or locally.

How many are actually blacked out though? I might as well just find a stream and run with that. I am so sick of antiquated blackout rules.

can't use that on a phone or table though.

it's because those networks shell out HUGE $$$ for those baseball rights and they aren't going to let MLB.TV play local games

same reason you can't get local games on Sunday Ticket

Its called protecting local broadcast rights. Those stations pony up money for the rights and want you to watch them on their channel.

bullshit. I always tip a minimum of 15. If they deserve it, they get 20%.

I would feel different if local network stations were carrying the games. The only place I can see the Royals play is on Fox Sports and I'm not paying inflated cable rates to get that.

Hootie 04-21-2013 08:58 PM

and MLB.TV is commercial free

so if you're watching the games on MLB.TV in your local market you are robbing those networks of the advertising dollars they projected to receive to make those contracts logical purchases

I'd just sign up for Fox sports, cheaper than extra innings.

No it isn't. Cable here is murder.
