Consumer devices[ edit ] Consumer devices that enable television subscribers to transmit their home television feed outside their host area to a remote location over the Internet , a practice called placeshifting , have drawn the ire of MLB. MLB's position is that subscribers who wish to watch MLB telecasts while traveling either settle for the local telecasts available or subscribe to MLB's own broadcasts for an additional fee.
Consumer advocates insist the practice is legal, since the remoted content is already purchased and is merely placeshifted by the subscriber; they claim MLB is asking fans to pay twice for the same content.
MLB counters that travelers utilizing placeshifting technology are undercutting the blackout rights MLB grants to local and national broadcasters, as well as MLB's own internet service.
As part of the new network, MLB has told owners to reduce their blackouts due to outrage amongst fans and letters pouring into MLB's offices. In particular, MLB is looking to address the availability of regional sports networks outside teams' immediate home markets.
Additionally, radio stations including flagships are not allowed to broadcast any MLB games in the live Internet streams of their station programming or on out-of-market radio affiliates that carry the station's main signal. MLB makes its own streams of the team networks available for a fee.
Some stations will replace the game with a recorded message explaining why the game cannot be heard on their stream. Others will simply stream the station's regularly scheduled programming that is being preempted by the game.
