I hate MLB tv !!


I hate MLB tv !!

Although I live out in the High Desert region of the Mojave, I'm in the broadcast blackout area for the Dodgers and Angels. For the last 3 years I've used a VPN to mask my location and watched almost every Dodger game. Much to my surprise, after paying for the MLB package and renewing my VPN for another year, I found out that MLB has figured out how to unmask VPN's. So basically I can watch everyone but the team I want to watch - and they have a no refund policy. I'm still trying to figure out an end around, but it doesn't look good. Blackouts are stupid. I refuse to get stupid Charter Spectrum and deal with their stupid and expensive Cable - I'll listen to the games on the Radio.

Re: I hate MLB tv !!

That really sucks. I agree, blackouts are ridiculous. Can’t watch on tv if you won’t pay tons to go live? Ridiculous.

I got MLB TV free through TMobile. Luckily I’m nowhere near Yankee area.

At least you can watch the NL West Champion Giants.

Get a fire stick “I know a guy”. ;)

Re: Re: I hate MLB tv !!

Regarding blackouts, I thought collective punishment was illegal under international law. Of course, the US is known for disregarding that sort of thing.

Re: I hate MLB tv !!

Oddly enough, I'm able to watch the Angels home game vs Houston on AppleTV+ - go figure. Someone already suggested a workaround for me that I'll try tomorrow.

Glad you got it figured out Sheik! As a Royals fan living in FLA, I am doing monthly this year till they fall off the edge. probably next week. But being from CT., I get to tune in to Yanks, Mets, and/or Sox until I am up there for the summer.
