Bring me MLB and I’ll cut the cord!
It’s already there on Apple TV
Live games? I think not…
From Apple’s web site:
Catch games from spring training through the regular season live and in HD with your MLB.TV subscription.
Sorry for confusion but MLB.tv has local blackout restrictions so, yes, I can watch the 14 games a day I don’t give a sh*t about but I can’t watch the 1 that I do…
You wanted live games. Apple TV has them.
As for the blackout rules, I hear MLB is working on that for you. Apple is not the only one forced to blackout games.
There are a number of proxy and relocation services that change your network location allowing you to watch blackout in market games.
Have you ever tried using a VPN?
VPN will work just have to be careful what areas your von ip’s are from. Safest to use ip’s from the other side of the country. Also be aware that local games from whatever teams are local to the vpn you are using will be blacked out. For example I used vpn for work reasons and that vpn is an IP from NY. If I forget to turn it off before watching an MLB game I lose watching Yankee games. I love in NC!

Bring me MLB with a more reasonable cost and I’ll think about it…..the option for a la carte choice of teams would be even better!
I have been watching live MLB games on AppleTV for years. You sign up for the MLB at MLB.com costs are around $129 a year. Blackout restrictions do apply, so if your team is not local and they are playing your local team those games would be blacked out and only viewable on local cables channels.
now i wish they would offer individual live games to be bought on demand. i’d be willing to pay like $3-$4 to watch my favorite team play when they are only on regional coverage elsewhere
As i indicated last week in a review ….. This client software SUCKS !!! Almost ALL the content requires you to sign up to pay… NO.
TAKE IT OFF….
This is NFL NOT!
I don’t want live teases and history clips. I want to but any game, anytime, for one price. Like buying a song or movie on iTunes.
Until that happens … snore.
… buy … sigh.
