    Well, I have always used VPNs to servers outside the US. That might be the issue. I never tried to shift location INSIDE the US. Your second option I understand in concept, but I would have to study up to execute it. Finding a vpn with IPs not on the blocklists may be a bigger challenge if MLB upgrades to Netflix standards. In any case, there always seems to be a way if you are willing to spend the effort to learn how to do it.

    If DISH drops a Regional Sports Network, don't expect them to get it back. Ever.



    Their business model is to cater to the budget conscious. Live sports drives the cost, so Dish's plan is to let them go. The sports fans will find their fix elsewhere; those who don't want to pay for sports will stay...


    I believe Ergen is on the record saying he has no intention of ever chasing a RSN he's lost over a cost dispute... The customers will not come back, because they've already moved on (to DTV, or some other platform).


    Sometimes I think old man Dolan had it right back in the not too distant past... Want a RSN? It's a premium channel; pay accordingly.

    Why do you have to do all that?

    You can stream Sling for $30/month with YES. Unless something changed, I did so last year. Had to be inmarket though.

    I live in Maryland. MLB.TV fulfills all my NYY needs (and I unlocate my AppleTV streaming device to pickup when they play the O’s, because MASN/2 aren’t on any streaming options, either. But that has to do with Angelos never entering any negotiation in good faith with any provider (ever, really).

    Sling box will be discontinued. https://www.slingbox.com/discontinued

    Too bad. This was a great product especially to get around in market blackouts
