Huge props to MLB.tv and TBS
Over the past few days, I've been enjoying the hell out of some playoff baseball. That's pretty normal, except...
I don't have cable. In all likelihood, I will never buy cable again. Instead of blacking out US and Canadian residents, MLB and TBS have agreed to allow MLB.tv subscribers to stream games over the Internet (instead of forcing me to just use a proxy out of country, like I normally do to watch games).
In a sports world that is blackout-crazy, it's nice to see organizations try to work with modern users instead of fighting them and forcing them to use back alley channels just to watch a damned baseball game.
If only more companies would show a little foresight and work with Internet streaming instead of keeping their feet planted in 1992.
