Wednesday, August 3, 2011 Blackout - Truth in Advertising At Last!

A while back I wrote a post about Major Leage Baseball's archaic blackout policies which disallow fans from watching their own home team over streaming services.  One of the mnost annoying things was the marketing from Major Leaguye Baseball which promised fans the ability to "Watch Baseball Everywhere".  It looks like MLB has finally gotten the message:

Of course, thousands of unhappy subscribers and complaints may have had something to do with it.

The new marketing clearly states "Watch every out-of-market game" and "Blackout and Other Restrictions Apply".  It's good to see baseball being forthcoming in describing their streaming media offering - it would be even better if they could get past the blackout market restrictions altogether!
