FSN Midwest has the game, but if you live in Cincinnati it will be blacked out.

Yep. I was at Wrigley in the mid 90s when they set the all time 4 game series attendance record there and there were a lot of Reds fans there.

Is that an "annonymous proxy"? I have heard that's how you can get around the blackouts on MLBTV. For those of you that don't know what that is, google the term and go to one of the many free sites that come up. It let's your data run through another proxy rather than your local provider. Good for EBay at work as well :evil:

The proxy may be anonymous, but our accounts with MLB sure aren't. MLBAM has each MLB.TV customer's name, credit card number, and billing address. MLBAM also has a policy in their TOS that permits them to charge a fine to the card and close the accounts of people they catch using a proxy.

It doesn't take much imagination to figure out that MLBAM just might be able to add 2 and 2 together when they notice someone with a billing address in Cincinnati is regularly connecting to game broadcasts from an IP address in Moldova or Reykjavik at 3 AM in the IP address's timezone. I don't know that they have done this, but they certainly could - and automatically, too. Discussing workarounds openly on the Internet is a good way to make them think they should.
