What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
I don't know how many BBTIA folks are tech savvy, but I was hoping to get some help from someone. I want to purchase MLB.tv but since I still live in Texas for now the games are blacked out. Is there a way to bypass these blackout restrictions either using a computer or a PS3? I would appreciate any feedback I could get. Thanks.
I'm sure you could spoof your IP or something like that. Maybe find a way to get a pseudo-IP from a different market. Don't ask me how to do it though...
You need a proxy IP. That's all I'm going to say :)
The proxy method is a pain, but it DOES work -- provided you find a stable, consistently performing proxy. I don't believe it's possible to pull it off using the PS3, but I could be mistaken.
Here's a little thing on setting up a proxy for your PS3:http://www.ehow.com/how_5152241_use-ps-proxy.html
Thanks. That is perfect. Now I just wish the spring training games were available on PS3 but it won't start until regular season.
@LFloyd - where you do live, and what is your cable provider? If you happen to have Time Warner, many areas of Central and South Texas had Ranger games on Channel 77 last year. I moved to Austin last August, and there only 1 or 2 games that were not televised on either 77 or regular Fox Sports when Houston wasn't playing.
At some point the suits at MLB really need to get a clue. Just add the same advertisements you would get over the air and let the home team fans get a second and mobile viewing option.
I run into the same thing as you so I can relate. I love my Verizon fiOS though.
I live in Lubbock as of now but I am moving to Colorado. I wanted a way to bypass the restrictions so I can watch Ranger games on the PS3 because it is so easy to watch several different games. Most games are televised out here but there are some times that something crazy happens and it won't be on.
If you're on Comcast in the Houston area they show a lot of Rangers games on channel 110. It's not in HD but its better than nothing.
I am currently in Colorado. I changed internet providers near the end of last year. The dang internet provider gave me an IP address out of Texas. It screwed me out of the last month of the season on mlb.tv. I wish I would asked the dumb tech question then.
What internet provider were you using? I don't want to have the same problem.
Stellera. It is only available in Western Colorado.
I know this is an old post, but has anyone found an IP address that works with MLB.TV yet? I've tried a quite a few, but they are all too slow or require a password/sign-in.
Ryan, here is a great proxy site: http://samair.ru/
