questionsdoes anyone subscribe to extra sports packages…


For MLB.TV there are free games you can watch every once in a while. They normally do it every week or so.

I do subscribe to MLB.TV and it is awesome. Last year I used it on my PS3 to watch the St. Louis Cardinals games. The best thing about it is you can watch up to 4 games at a time (if you pay for MLB.TV Premium, which you should to get the HD quality). In addition, you also get the Gameday audio with MLB.TV Premium. You also get to choose which broadcast you want (home/away). Type your zip code in to MLB.TV's website to find out which teams are blacked out. In addition, some saturday/sunday games are blacked out. But you still get audio from them. They normally display about 90 minutes after the game.

Keep an eye on MLB's Facebook page if you want to try it out. They typically announce what game they are giving for free.

If you have any questions about the service, let me know.

I haven't used any of the others unfortunately.


@hackman2007: Thanks! What excuse do they make for the weekend games being blacked out? That would be a bummer since weekend afternoon games are my favourite to watch.


@meh3884: MLB exclusivity.

Here is the exact quote:

"Regular Season Weekend U.S. National Live Blackout: Due to Major League Baseball exclusivities, live games occurring each Saturday with a scheduled start time after 1:10 PM ET or before 8:00 PM ET and each Sunday with a scheduled start time after 5:00 PM ET, will be blacked out in the United States (including the territories of Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands)"


Personally, I usually purchase the MLB App on my Android to get the Audio. That way I can listen to the games wherever I am.

I do have cable, and I'm a Red Sox fan, and NESN is part of the Expanded Basic plan here in RI.


for less than 10 bucks a months I get at least 20 blacked out NHL,NBA and MLB games depending on the day or the season. But if I want 40 soccer games, poker tournaments or local cable sports talk shows, I'm all set.


@mkentosh: Wait, what? What is less than $10 a month? Howwww?
