Who among you guys and gals has paid out your $110 bucks for MLB.TV on the computer in the past? I posted this on Facebook the other day, and I’m wondering how it’s worked for others.

So I’m thinking of subscribing to MLB.TV to watch games on the desktop this season until I look at the blackout restrictions for my zip code (and state, for that matter):

The below-listed Club(s) is within the searched home television territory, and MLB.TV is subject to blackout for all regular season live games for these Club(s):

Oakland Athletics
Seattle Mariners
San Francisco Giants
San Diego Padres
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
Los Angeles Dodgers

Cool. I can watch all the games for all the teams I have no interest in whatsoever, but anything on the West Coast is verboten. Keep your $109.99, MLB.TV.

What a load of BS. Like I’m gonna hop a plane and fly over to watch the game so I can’t be given access to it on TV lest I hurt the paid gate.

As you can see, I’m annoyed by this. Has anyone tried it?

Update: Jon SooHoo has posted a number of great pictures from today’s activities at Camelback Ranch on his official Dodgers Photo Blog.

Update: Dodgers – Angels Gameday.

    used only MLB radio I have directv and all the regional sports channel package plus i pay for MLB extra innings.

    I’m hoping the new Dodger TV channel (TWC) follows the Lakers new channel (TWC) which has broadcasted all their games to even include some games by the big networks (TNT, NBA tv, and ESPN). I now don’t have to pay for NBA league pass

      Apparently we won’t know how that’s going to work until next season.

    Kemp looks might trim in the Soohoo pix. Great to see Vinny and the gang. Can’t wait for opening day.

      He weighed in at 214, 1 pound less than Crawford.

    Just out of curiosity, what is the situation as regards blackouts for “regular” TV?

      We get Prime Ticket throughout the season. The only games I don’t see are either not televised at all or on KCAL.

    I had a friend fall into their trap similarly. Though he was 800 miles from the team he wanted to watch, Vegas was considered local market for the Giants. Based on his experience, I’ve never even thought about it.

      A case of insult to injury.

    Kershaw looked sharp (so did Cruz with his HR) :)
