All saturday afternoon games are blacked out, that's just the way it is. I'm not complaining too much though, it was well worth the money IMO.

I live in Canada and it is not blacked out for me. Try that proxy thing people were talking about and choose something in Canada, that might work.

It's because they're all national broadcasts on FOX, just like the ESPN Sunday night games. It's still definitely worth it though -- $.50 a day to watch virtually any game I want? ;-D

Try living in Japan. Every game is blacked out. :~(

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

hey, if you do the 14.95 for a month thing; do you just get 30 days from whenever you buy it?

God I love complaining about MLB.TV...

I live in northern Iowa and I am blacked out to...

ChiCubs
ChiSox
Milwaukee
Cards
Twins
Royals

Is that not ridiculous? I can understand the Cubs and Sox, b/c their games are shown here on WGN and Comcast. We get most Cards games on WB or FSN, so I get that, too. We're actually closest to Minnesota and probably should get those games, so that's okay.

But KC and Milwaukee? Are you f'ing kidding me? I live nowhere close to these cities... and there sure as hell aren't any Brewers or Royals fans here. Actually, are there Brewers and Royals fans anywhere?

When none of these teams are playing each other, I'm blacked out to like a third of the games on the slate. Just not worth 15 bucks a month.

yeah. that sucks. i've only got to deal with marlins and d-rays blackouts, which usually isn't too bad. although as a braves fan, i'd really like to see the fish/braves serieses. :-/
