What If You Live Outside the Pittsburgh TV Market
If you live outside the AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh broadcast area, it won’t be in your channel lineup. This is true of whether you use streaming services or subscribe to cable TV.
You can use MLB.TV and have access to not only every Pirates game live, but every game played by every team. The only drawback is games are blacked out if they are being shown nationally or if you live in an area where that game is being broadcast on a regional sports network like AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh. So we put together another guide to watching the Pirates online. The same is true with the Penguins being blacked out if you use NHL.TV live in the Pittsburgh TV market. However, you can get around that using this TV blackout workaround.
