A lot has been said about the Pirates game tonight and the black out rules that apply to it. So I picked up the phone and called MLB.com customer support.
I was able to verify that the game will be blacked out in the Pittsburgh and Milwaukee markets, but it will be available to MLB.tv subscribers who do not reside in those markets.
Still a really, really stupid rule, but at least some people will be able to see it. If you subscribe to MLB.tv and you are in the Pittsburgh market, then you are out of luck, unless you can do something to fool MLB into thinking you aren’t in the area.
