Anyone have this?

I'm thinking about getting it, and possibly going in with 3 other people if I can find them, since you get 4 logins. Essentially like $33 a person or something.

I tried last year but blackouts were annoying so this year I'm going to buy a proxy address for $4 a month so they think I'm somewhere like Europe, etc.

Just gauging how much people enjoy it? I think there is a mode where you can rewatch a game and only see at-bats, so games only take 30-40 minutes. Good after a long day of work I bet.

I really really love it. I can't get Braves games otherwise. The only thing that is lame is that I live in the Washington Nationals viewing area and yet somehow don't get any channels that carry them locally (how in the fug Brunswick County NC is Nationals home territory, I'll never know) and being a Braves fan it would piss me off when the Braves/Nationals games were blacked out - being as they are in the same division, it happened about 30 times a year or so. Otherwise, it was awesome.

Maybe you should look into buying a $4 a month proxy address to throw in your PC/PS3 etc, when they play each other? I'm a Cubs and Braves fan. Without a proxy I won't be able to watch the Braves. It's silly, in Charlotte the Reds/Nationals/Orioles/Braves are all blacked out. Besides the Braves, those other teams are like 10 hours away, stupid. Even the Braces, 3-3.5 hours away is silly to be blacked out. If you buy a service, there should be no blackouts. Last year, they lost $130 bucks from me. I was never going to be able to make any live game, so it's just a complete loss of money for them.

I usually just use a pirate site like vipbox for the few games a year that are blacked out.

I love it. I did not renew this year as money is tight at the moment. Lots of things going on but plan on getting back in around Memorial Day. I live nowhere near Boston so the only games that I really have to worry about blackouts are FOX Saturday games or if I want to watch the Rockies but firstrowsports is an easy option for those.

I do not understand why FOX wants the blackouts anyway. If I want to watch another FOX game they should be fine with that.

What do you mean you get four logins? My brother has it and if I can use him I will just float him some $$$

EDIT: Never mind, I figured it out.

In regards to the blackouts. I am not sure if things changed or what but I live in Denver, my bro (whose account I am using) lives in Tampa and last night both the Rockies and Rays worked for me

Just bought MLB.tv premium for only $56 bucks for the rest of the year.  Heck of a deal for others on the fence.  Going to have a buddy and maybe others split it since this is something you can do.  I also found a solution for blackouts that re-routes DNS for services like mlb.tv, etc.  It's like 4 bucks a month or so and if it works I'll posts my findings.  Pretty stoked.

Jesus it's only 56 bucks right now? Maybe next year i will wait until may and save 100 bucks. Not that i really care but with the Angels being as bad and dysfunctional as they are right now, I'm basically done watching baseball for a bit.

But yeah, it's awesome to have and being able to watch on your phone is a pretty handy thing to have as well.
