    Out of Market Games

    For those who watch from Non-Boston Markets, how do you watch the games?


    My understanding is that Extra Innings OR MLBTV allows you to watch every game on NESN (In the past, I believe it was only about 100-125 games and half of those could be on the other team's broadcast; that's changed and improved now, right? I think with MLB TV PREMIUM???).   Is this accurate?


    But what about the Fox Sat games and Sun ESPN games?  I would ESPN is no problem since that is just 1 game they broadcast (although very rarely sometimes it is 2) but what about Sat FOX since they do 2 games - will you get Boston or the other game? 


    And most importantly, what about Post Season games?  Sometimes they split the feeds on one channel (ESPN, TBS, NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, FX, TNN, MLB, etc)...........

    Re: Out of Market Games

    Well, when they are good, they make regular appearances on ESPN.  I have DirectTV, and while I don't subscribe to the MLB package (all games), I do get the MLB channel, which has games most days/nights when ESPN isn't carrying a game.  Red Sox have made several appearances there this year.  Otherwise, if I am not doing something else, I will sometimes watch the last few innings via computer on the vipbox website.  Seldom watch a whole game that way.  Japanese commercials can be interesting.


     


    I live on the Illinois/Iowa border, so I'm blacked out from seeing Cubs/White Sox (although these are usually available via the Chicago broadcasts) as well as the Cardinals.  For whatever reason, both the Brewers and Twins claim this as home territory as well, so there's 2 more black out teams. Hence my use of vipbox.

    I think if you ordered the package and should be able to watch all games.  But sometime it could be black out and show it on another channel such as YES if you have one.  Since I live in NY State, once or twice a year, when Boston is playing the Yankees, sometime it is blacked out on MLB and YES at the same time.  Not sure what is the reason for it.  

    But you should be able to watch at least over 150 games if you purchased MLB package.  no way that more than 50 to 75 games is blacked out for you.   I would file complaint against MLB networking!!

    I have a regular subscription with MLB.tv

     

    I can't watch games on ESPN and I can't watch them play against Houston or Tex (I am in Austin, TX).

    I use mlb.com and hook the laptop to the TV via an HDMI cable, which provides a pretty good picture--a better picture than I was getting with the MLB package on verizon fios, which gave me a lousy feed of NESN.

    I have Xtra innings, and get every game; sometimes it's only the local team's broadcast, sometimes it's not on Xtra Innings because it's an ESPN, or Fox. For me, I like the NESN, but it really doesn't make that much difference if it's the NY or Toronto or whomever. It's the same game. I live in Ft Myers, so the Ray's games usually have to be watched on Sunsports, and the Ray's guys (especially some guy named Anderson) are really lousy. In that case, I grin and bear it, watch the game, sometimes turn off the sound, and hope the Sox kill'em!

    Also, remember, the Sox and Yankees games are usually on at the same time so, with XTRA Innings, I can switch now and then should I have the urge see what's going on with, I think, our main competitor.

    I didn't watch any post season games on xtra innings, last year. They are always on one network or another.

    so it seems as though you could watch nearly all regular season games and mostly on NESN.  only question here is when they play the yankees are stuck w/ the YES feed?


    then is the question of Post Season - it seems like the answer is yes but just to confirm, you get the Sox games on the national broadcasts?  world series and even ALCS I would think but the Wild Card series would concern me......so do you get every game??

    Extra Innings is the baseball package you can buy w/ most cable/sat subscriptions

    MLBTV allows you to watch games via streaming on your PC or you can connect your PC to your TV monitor to watch (via HDMI Cable)

     

    I think!

    I get MLB extra innings, have for years.  I don't always get NESN though. The O's and Nats are blacked out because they are on local channels.  The O's are on MASN, not sure what channel the nats are on because I don't like national league play.  


    I went to a couple of nat's game both at the old and new stadium.  Not impressed.


    If the game is nationaly broadcast then MLB extra innings doesn't carry it.  I pretty much see all the games but on rare occasions they are not on tv.  If not on tv I listen to them on the radio via my computer.

    Not necessarily.  I get other broadcasters not just the guys at NESN.  I don't always get YES when I listen to the yanks.  The YES guys are much better than they used to be.  Maybe the 3 WS wins helped with that! I think the rays announcers are worse than those at YES.

    No post season games are regional tv.  It's FOX, TBS, ESPN, etc.  The issue is what happens when say FOX has to broadcast 2 games at a time.  And you are out of market for the Sox but in market for say the Dodgers.  Which feed will you get???  And can you get more coverage by using MLB TV instead of Extra Innings?
