Blackout rules gone for 2014?

Didn’t mean to start a whole new discussion, but not sure where to put this.  I just read on another sports site the the MLB blackout rules (for the most part) will be gone next season, including the horrible Fox Saturday blackouts!

Sorry if I’m late to the party with this info, I just hadn’t seen it.  Not sure how it will effect (or is is ‘affect’-I can never remember) the MLB.TV that many of us subscribe to, but I know we have all had many discussions about getting different feeds of the game, etc..

 

Now if they can fix the NFL blackouts, but that’s another story….

Man, if I can get Rockies games on MLB.tv that would really put me over the edge in cancelling DirectTV.

It will make my dad happy. It is freakin unbelievable where he lives. He really gets screwed because they allege he is in the Giants, Dodgers, A’s, and Angels market. They recently blacked out the Dodgers when they were in Baltimore!!! And he is paying $199 for extra innings!

I subscribe to the Direct TV baseball package and I like it. But I wish I could get the other team’s announcers sometimes instead of Root. Last night when George, Drew and (yes you too) Marc were clowning around I was just hitting the mute button. I tried to go to the Tampa Bay feed but couldn’t get it. By the way although I’m really teed off at the Rockies announcers on Root I’m pretty sure that the only reason… Read more »

Not sure I want to post this in fear of jinxing myself, but here goes. I live in Castle Rock, CO and am able to watch all of the Rockies games using my MLB.tv account on my PlayStation with the MLB.tv app/option – with Comcast cable as the pipe. No blackouts, no restrictions found as of yet. I am assuming it’s something to do with the PlayStation Network, but it never does the location verification and I’ve been able to… Read more »

Stace, you’ve found the Holy Grail of MLB.tv…I assume you are right, about the combination of PlayStation Network with MLB.tv. Over the past couple of years when I’ve used my iPhone for the games, I would just reload the page over and over for the game and it would take a few times (no more than 10) and it would let me through…play ball and all of that…I believe it was the MLB.tv app trying to find my IP address… Read more »
