Local Live Blackout: ALL LIVE MLB.TV games will be blacked out in each applicable Club's home television territory (except for certain home television territories for which MLB.com may offer in-market subscription services) or in Japan.

What exactly does this mean? If I purchase MLB.TV in Baltimore will I be able to watch the Orioles games?

Or do they not let you watch the home teams games? I do not have cable and really want to see the O's games! But if they do not show them then it may not be worth it to me!

Thanks for the help!

Yeah I lose Cubs and Sox games... It's basically to keep local ratings, I mean you are already getting those games reguardless of having MLB.TV, unless you have no TV other than MLB.TV which then you can watch all those games under the archives.

My question is when are the condensed games comming back? Those were the best, I was told they were trying to bring them back by June. I've yet to find them.

That almost makes it worth having T-mobile, except needing to use my phone for business and have it actually work.

Anyone know of deals for MLB.tv this year?   I got it free all last year via t-mobile which was a ridiculously sweet deal. But I haven't heard anything from them about a similar deal this ye

Active duty and Veterans get 35% off,it comes to $73.

hopefully by next years baseball season, sony will release their "play tv" and i can just order extra innings at home and watch from my work computer instead of mlb.tv

I just set up an account a few minutes ago and got the same problem...using Firefox. Safari wouldn't run it either. I ditched this account two years ago b/c of consistently poor quality video...wish I hadn't coughed up the money today either.

It means it won't be available on MLB.tv in the US because ESPN has exclusive broadcast rights. They don't have exclusive rights for their weekday games for example, but they are the only one carrying the Sunday night game.

Yeah, no MLB.TV tonight. I think most cable systems require a subscription for access to the WatchESPN app, but that may be worth looking into if you're in that situation. MLB's blackout restrictions are beyond ridiculous (I'm in Columbus, OH and the Pirates are blacked out for no reason), but nothing seems to be changing from year to year.

Those are by far the most annoying aspects of MLB.TV. On the whole, it's a great product.

Same problem, I'm in Cleveland and Cinci games are blacked out sometimes, but 90% of the time I get Reds' and Pirates' games. Either way, MLB.TV is amazing and if you have an Xbox 360 the app is great. While watching a game, just move the left thumbstick and it pulls up a bottom line with every game, score, inning, etc and you just click on the game to go back and forth. You don't need that extra software (nexdef) to watch in HD, either. From my experience, do not download NexDef to watch HD off your PC, it runs in the background 24/7 and eats up memory.

Great tips. I recently got a Roku and the app for it seems awesome, too. Yes, NexDef really sucks. It's a total memory hog plus it delays your feed for about 5 seconds, so if you're following along on a StatTracker you'll see what happens on it before the stream. The feeds look great without NexDef, anyway.

Is Pittsburgh your local broadcast? Then yes, you have to watch it on Fox Sports through a cable provider.

Last nights game was blacked out because it was on ESPN. Everyone has a couple teams that are always blacked out. If you're in their television market, all the live games will be blacked out. You can watch them after they're over though.

Side not, the Xbox 360 app...mine has subtitles for every game. Is this a MLB.TV setting or an Xbox setting?

This is an Xbox 360 setting, I fixed it if anyone else has this problem.

How did you fix that subtitle thing on the xbox 360? I can't figure it out for the life of me. Thanks.
