MLB.TV Blackout Workaround from Ghost Path

MLB.TV Blackout Workaround

MLB.TV is far and away the best sports streaming service that we’ve tried. The software and product are both great.

Our only complaint is the antiquated blackout policy that prevents us from watching our favorite teams, even though they are hundreds of miles away. The notion of a team’s “home region” is overreaching. For example, I’m a Braves fan. I can’t watch Braves games on MLB.TV anywhere in Georgia, the Carolinas, or North Florida. It’s probably the same for Tennessee and Alabama, but I haven’t personally tried there. The idea is that if you’re in the home region for a team you should be able to see the game on the team’s TV station on cable or satellite. The problem is that you have to have cable, which kind of defeats the purpose for having MLB.TV.

That’s where Ghost Path VPN comes in quite handy. By connecting your computer to our VPN you can make it appear as if you’re located somewhere else. For example, to get around a Braves game blackout I would connect to a VPN endpoint outside the southeast, like Denver. Once you’re on the VPN then you can use MLB.TV as you normally would.

MLB.TV on Mobile Devices

Unfortunately using VPN on iPhone, Android phones, iPad’s etc. won’t work. MLB.TV requires you to use location services (GPS) on your mobile device as a means of determining your location, and Ghost Path can’t help with that.
