I tried searching but didn't find anything so here are my questions.

If you have it, do you get it year round or is just during the regular season? If I got it now, would there be older games on or talk shows or what?

I live in the UP of Michigan. Would I get the Tigers games up here? I'm not sure if we're part of the local blackout area or is it just closer to Detroit?

I dumped the cable but in doing that, I lose FSN so now I'm trying to see if there are ways to still get the games.

Thanks.

Never mind. Found an area on their site after much digging where I could put my zip code in to see what teams are blacked out. The Tigers are. No games for me this year I guess.

They were talking about relaxing the blackout regions for mlb.tv. They wont ever get a dim efrom me until they do relax or remove the restrictions.

I live in Las Vegas, and I am in the "home market" for a whopping 6 teams.

The below-listed Club(s) is within the searched home television territory, and MLB.TV is subject to blackout for all regular season live games for these Club(s):

  • Oakland Athletics
  • San Francisco Giants
  • San Diego Padres
  • Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
  • Arizona Diamondbacks
  • Los Angeles Dodgers

Distances:

Las Vegas, Nevada

- Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. 272 miles from Angel Stadium

- Los Angeles Dodgers. 278 miles from Dodger Stadium

- Arizona Diamondbacks. 314 miles from Chase Field

- San Diego Padres. 338 miles from Petco Park

- Oakland Athletics. 560 miles from O.co Coliseum

- San Francisco Giants. 574 miles from AT&T Park

Approximate Zip Code: 89081

Absolutely asinine.

Yup, the blackout restrictions are ridiculous.

From what I understand, it isn't MLB that blacks you out. It's up to the individual organizations to establish their own blackout areas. No idea why they push them out so far. It's unrealistic.

Being able to watch the team on TV and becoming familiar with the players is what makes people want to go to the games in the first place!!!

That being said, you can go down the Proxy road, where MLB thinks you're in a different country. It's not too hard.

Here's a quick video on one way of doing it:

Just to answer the other side of your question, you can watch archived games year-round. I believe it goes back to 2012 right now.

That won't work on an iPad or iPhone, which uses the device's built-in location services and not the IP address you are hooked into.

I have a $49 Roku stick hooked up to my TV with an MLB.TV app installed that, for whatever reason, does not black out local games for me (Cubs and White Sox), which is tremendous because I can listen to out of town announcers for their games (both teams' TV announcers are far below average). I didn't have to spoof an IP address to do it; it just happened. I don't know whether that will work for anyone or everyone else, though.

I did this awhile ago. I watched a Verlander start from when he was great. Made me sad.

Wow, that's crazy. You lucked out.
