    MLB.TV Blackout question

    today is a Radio only day, but I have MLB.tv premium. When I try it on the Reds it says that I am in blackout land, but what if it not on TV? will I be able to watch the game with it?

    Those of us in Cincinnati will still be blacked out as FSN owns the rights. Even though they chose not to exercise said broadcast rights the blackout is still in effect.

    I got of work early today, so I went to lunch at a place I could catch the game on TV, only to find out it was a radio-only day...sigh.

    I agree... I hate the blackout rules. They don't make much sense. How many games do you guys have a year that are radio only?

    As per the mlb.tv agreement, if you want to see it really badly, it's blacked out.

    Works out fine for those of us who live 1,000 miles away. You want to begrudge us distant fans the only advantage we have?

    Ohhh... I didn't even realize they still had blackout games. I thought the Fox Sports contract did away with them. Anyways... they should do away with them completely. Blackout rules for baseball just don't make any sense.

    Hey bro...what do you have? MLB Extra Innings? Can you get all the games? I had EI a couple of years ago when I lived in Ohio, but I didn't get all of the Cardinals games. I get more now that I moved back to MO. Different teams must have different blackout rules.

    MLB.TV on a Roku box.

    I get all of the Reds games that don't conflict with Fox's national games (Saturday afternoon) and don't involve the Astros or Rangers. That's most of them.

    When I had Extra Innings, we didn't get any Sunday Cardinals games at all. Fox doesn't have rights to Sunday games in St. Louis. If you pay that much for it... you should get every game. I just find it intersting how each team handles the televised games differently.

    I think it's still just 17. FSO added the weekday game at Milwaukee last week after Fox announced that they had picked up the Reds-Braves game last Saturday. The advertising was already sold, so they could add a game as a replacement to the schedule.
