I don't know if you have satellite TV, but this is a question I've always had. If you are considered to be in a particular team's market and the regional sports network that broadcasts that team's games is not part of your package, can you buy the Regional Sports Package (giving you all the regional sports networks in the country) and get the team's broadcasts that way?
I've always wondered what happens to those people who live in areas considered to be the home market for multiple teams. If they can't get those games through Extra Innings or MLB.TV because of the blackout rules, does that mean that they aren't blacked out on their respective regional sports network? It seems counterproductive to deem people part of a team's market area and not give them some way of viewing the games.
