    Is there an alternative to cable/DirectTV to watch Reds games

    I dont have cable or any of that because for the most part I think TV is pretty boring.

    But I do like watching the Reds though. I live in Cincinnati. Is Cable/DirectTV my only option?

    MLB.TV is the only other option of which I'm aware.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Dish Network?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Get mlb.tv, use the fullscreen option and connect your pc to your tv (may need to buy a special cable) Then you can watch games for about half the cost of extra innings, albeit at a love resolution than cable tv.

    So basically what you all are saying is, if I live in Cincinnati my only options to watch the Reds are to pony up for Cable/Direct TV/Dish Network?

    or MLB.TV

    The Reds haven't been on an OTA(over-the-air) outlet for years.

    Move to Elko, NV. Then log onto MLB.TV.

    I just signed up for my 1st year of mlb.tv. I just felt as if it was stupid for me to keep paying the extra money for EI, when I can have basically the same thing for less money.
