MLB.tv Blackouts Are Annoying!

I am a huge fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Major League Baseball in general. Becuase I live away from my home in Southern California while in college, I sign up for MLB.tv every year so that I can see my Dodger games. Normally, the service is great and I have few complaints. However, one thing that I find very annoying is when I am blacked out of a game that I have no way of seeing!

Case in point: I go to school in Utah. Utah is zoned by MLB to be blacked out of games played by the Colorado Rockies and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Since both of these teams are in the Dodgers' division, they play each other often. When LA plays Colorado, I simply turn on Fox Sports and I can see the game. However, when the Dodgers play the Diamondback, I have no way of watching my team because the Arizona games are not shown on TV in Utah! Nevertheless, I am blacked out of watching the game via my MLB.tv subscription.

Luckily, there is a was around these frustrating and poorly implemented blackouts. See my post on circumventing MLB.tv blackouts here.
