If you live in the Baltimore Orioles TV market, most Orioles games are on the Orioles’ regional sports network, The Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN). AT&T TV offers MASN in their Max package channel lineup, but it’s $80 per month. If that is too expensive, there is a more affordable way to watch O’s games. This article will explain how to watch all your Baltimore Orioles games if you don’t have a satellite or cable TV subscriptions.
Watching Orioles Games Online
If you don’t live in the MASN broadcast area, then you can easily watch Orioles games online using MLB.TV. I explain how to do this in my guide to watching MLB games. MLB.TV airs every game, from every team live, as long as you don’t live in the team’s TV market, and the game isn’t nationally televised. In those cases, there is a several hour delay before you can watch the game.
So Orioles fans living in the MASN TV market experience that live black-out on MLB.TV for Orioles games. Luckily, you can get around this inconvenience by using a VPN to get around the black-out.
MLB.TV figures out where you live based on your IP address. If you want to watch the Orioles game live on MLB.TV but live in Baltimore, MLB.TV sees you have a Baltimore IP address and blacks out the live game. However, you can use a VPN service like IPVanish allows you to join a Virtual Network in another part of the country or world. The VPN makes it appear as your computer is in that part of the world as well.
- Sign up for IPVanish.
- Once you sign up, install the IPVanish client. After that, it is simply a matter of starting the client, logging in, and click India as your location on the map to turn on the VPN.
- Your computer now looks like it is in India and won’t be subject to MLB.TV black-outs.
I chose IPVanish because there customer support is excellent, and they will walk you through setting this up if you have any issues. They also have a 30-day money-back guarantee. Currently, you can get the service for $6.49 per month if you sign up for a whole year.
Once the VPN is set up, you can sign up for MLB.TV. You can use your current billing address. The VPN will still open up all games by presenting you living in a location that does not deserve the black-out from the perspective of MLB.TV. Furthermore, you now have access to a VPN service for added security.
Also know, that while this works, it’s likely a violation of terms of service with MLB.TV. Basically, this would give them rights to terminate your MLB.TV service if they wish.
