As you are probably aware, the Major League Baseball (MLB) will blackout live games from your home (or even nearby) states. The reason is that the local broadcaster has the rights to show the game.
There is an easy, cheap and effective way to get around the MLB blackout, and that is to use a US proxy service to give yourself an IP address in a different state.
MLB.tv uses your IP address to determine your likely geographical location. The blackouts are then applied to the required areas, and all IP addresses that are known to be in those areas.
As a permanent workaround, you can buy an exclusive proxy from USAProxies.net which will give you a high-speed proxy in a different state (either West Coast or East Coast). The proxy is also quite cheap at only $2.20 per month with no setup costs.
The proxy is fully anonymous so MLB won’t know a proxy is being used which will prevent both your account and the proxy itself from being banned or blacklisted.
Once you’ve signed up for your proxy you’ll be given the proxy IP address, port and a username and password for access (usually setup within 24 hours). All you need to do is configure your browser (IE/Chrome etc.) to use the proxy, and when you connect it’ll prompt you for a username/password. Enter in the credentials supplied, and you’re good to watch your game!
USAProxies.net stand behind their service, and if your given proxy doesn’t work, they will give you a different proxy in another state to ensure you can get around the blackout.
