MLB Close to Ending Blackout Restrictions

Perhaps as soon as 2015, MLB will begin to ease blackout restrictions for local viewers.

According to  Forbes contributor Maury Brown, Major League Baseball is striving to make changes to their blackout restrictions for games that are viewed on mobile devices and computers. For many of us without cable television or satellite services, we are blacked out from viewing local team games on MLB.TV.

Even with a MLB.TV subscription the customer is asked to enter their local television provider to view home team games.

The blackouts also extend to regional televised games, such as when your hometown team has a nationally televised game.

Brown, President of Business of Sports Network, tweeted an example of what is seen when viewing a home game on MLB.TV
