I'd like to see some of the games from Vin's last season, as we missed it thanks to this fuckery.
last time i ate at tgif i couldn't even eat the food it was so gross
islands has stepped up its game some jalapeno big kahuna burger and a nice sports bar, at least by me
my tech guy helped me solve my issue to make them and their bs a non issue so i can watch and then this
Any Dodger fan who is fervent enough to know who Vin Scully is probably didn't miss games because of this fuckery.
The real fuckery was removing the Dodgers from the mainstream pop-culture consciousness.
In other words, people had to make a conscious decision to see the Dodgers (switch providers, use streams, VPNs, etc.)
They were invisible to casual fans, channel flippers, and patrons of bars and restaurants.
If this continued much longer the Dodgers would slowly become a niche product.
The checks would keep coming in but the mainstream popularity and ability to attract new fans would undoubtedly suffer.
Now that they finally restored mass distribution in the satellite/cable space, I expect Spectrum to shift their attention to streaming.
The Dodgers are one of only 3 teams in MLB whose rights-holder does not offer a companion app for streaming games outside the home.
I imagine this was because they didn't want people using their friend's cable credentials to view games without having to switch to Spectrum or pressuring their providers to pick up SNLA.
That's what is so ludicrous about it. I'd GLADLY pay a high ala carte fee to Spectrum or SNLA or whomever to watch Dodger games. I'd fork over $100-$200 per season to get that channel. But those board room ubercunts haven't got a clue. I'll bet there are a million Dodger fans who'd spend the same money I'm willing to pay. Oh well.
The old stomping grounds!!!
I've been a part of that group for 6 years, cancelled mlb.tv when the season was postponed (planned to renew for less when the shortened season is announced) and cancelled my VPN yesterday, felt awesome.
thinking of investing now that the lockout is over
all the information/pricing information i’ve found is unclear of what package(s) i’d need and what the costs might be
anyone have att/directtv that can help a brother out?
thx in advance
You don't need a specific package, Irish...but you just call and order the Direct TV BB package to whatever else you get. It's seperate from what ever else you get. At least mine is.
It will go until the last regular game of the season, not one second longer. And be prepared not not see at all/ see very little of any post game show.
Just ask for the minimum you have to get as long as you have the Dodger channel. If you already subscribe to streaming channels, keep DTV to a minimum.
Irish lives locally though, no? He shouldn't need the bb package. SNLA should be included already.
Way over my head TB...I have no idea.
I just wanted to share my experience with DTV and their BB package offering.
Just that you could have minimum DTV and stll get the thing...
I tried ExpressVPN last season. It worked but it was spotty, sometimes it would just stop and i would have to contact support. Then i found these guys recommending Nord instead: https://www.anonymistic.com/mlb-tv-vpn-blackout-workaround/
It worked much better.
Nice first SPAM message, hasan... Lemme guess, Enweitok Kwajalein IP address?
BTW, I have found the VPN to be annoying when forget to turn it off and can't browse Amazon and other sites.
wtf is going on in here
thanks for all the help guys
Now grab ankle, bitch. And Brando ...
GET THE BUTTER!
