This part is definitely true. I live in SC (out of the Reds market), but my ISP is obviously in Asheville. Google searches often suggest Asheville businesses. So I don't get the free games unless I call MLB.com services and have them unblock me, which is a real pain. The worse is when the free game is vs. the Braves and I'm screwed either way. It happened last year.
