As we enter a third season of no Dodgers Baseball to 70% of the Los Angeles market, I wanted to make sure people know they have an alternative to Time Warner Cable and Charter. I don’t expect an agreement between Time Warner and the other TV providers such as DirecTV, Verizon Fios, AT& T U-verse, etc to happen this year once again. So what does that mean for 70% of Los Angeles? Well it means we are unable to watch Dodgers games once again, but there are a few options that we can take advantage of.

Many people have resorted to online free streams but when I have tried them they were very slow and many people said they got a virus from those sites and the numerous pop up windows. What I did last year and will continue to do this year once again was purchase a subscription to MLB.TV. Yes the subscription costs $109.99, but that is less than paying a provider every month for channels I don’t want. Also depending when you sign up for MLB.TV the price might be cheaper. Two years I believe I signed up in May for half the cost because I had watched one of the Free games of the day, so price can vary depending on start date. If you live in the Los Angeles market though we have the issue of Blackouts, but that is where a service like UnBlockUs or Unlocator comes in. What these services do is simple, they hide your geographical location so you are able to connect to something that may be Blacked out in your area. Both these services offer a one week free trial and charge $5 monthly after that. Its up to you if you want to pay entire year or for just the duration of the baseball season. I used UnBlockUs last year and had no issues. You can connect through a computer, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Apple TV and many other devices. They both have a full list of devices on their websites and easy install Instructions.
This is the solution I would recommend to anyone that is tired of this ridiculous TV situation. I no longer have words for the situation and had to find alternative means to watch the games. Give it a shot, try the free trials what do you have to lose? It is not like the games will be available anytime soon.
