What is MLB.tv, and how can I watch it?

MLB.tv is the best way to stream all of your out-of-market baseball without missing any of the action. And now, with StreamLocator, the annoying issue of blackout games has become a thing of the past.

MLB.tv, the streaming service at mlb.com, provides online access to all the season’s baseball action over various apps and platforms. There are plenty of nifty features for the avid baseball fan to enjoy during games and plenty more content to access on demand. As well as live gameplay, there are documentaries, interviews, highlights, insights, and discussions galore to watch, as well as classic favourites from the baseball history vaults.

Despite MLB.tv bringing all of your out-of-market games you want to watch into one place—instead of signing up for three or four different channels with your satellite or cable provider—you still have to find a way to watch your in-market games.

Until now.

StreamLocator fixes the blackout issue for everyone

Whether you’re in the US or Canada, it’s the local providers (your Regional Sports Network) that holds the viewing rights to your local games. That means yet another service to sign up to for your team’s home games.

Streaming services conform to the same restrictions as they do on TV, but this time, using geo-location tracking to spot where the streams are being accessed. Sadly, it’s the same outcome—if your games are in-market, you’re blocked!

With StreamLocator providing a virtual out-of-market location, your local games are beamed seamlessly into your home and to your devices. How’s that for an all-inclusive solution to an array of viewing problems?

How can I watch MLB.tv with StreamLocator?

MLB.com’s servers need to know precisely where their viewers are, to know which games they’re permitted to watch. Online, they do this via a system called geo-location tracking. They detect the viewer’s IP address, which places them in a specific country or region. With that information, they block in-market games but permit any out-of-market for your location.

StreamLocator communicates with the MLB servers and provides them with an alternative address for its subscribers, making them appear out-of-market for their blocking software. Better still, it does it without you even knowing it's happening. Just sit back, sign in, and soak up the action!

No complicated settings or software installation required

If watching baseball is all you care about, then you probably don’t need to know how our system works, but when you do, it could open doors to all kinds of alternative content you’re currently missing out on.

We designed a system where our subscribers don’t have to download software or input complicated profiles or settings on all of their devices. We also made sure it would work with the Smart TVs and closed system devices that VPN and Smart DNS services didn’t provide apps for or workarounds. That means you can wave goodbye to all the usual complications, and you don’t have to remember to turn it on or work your way through the locations until you find one that works, either.

If you’re a full-on sports addict, StreamLocator provides blackout workarounds for football, hockey, and basketball. How attractive is our little white smart hub looking now?

As well as sport, it unblocks masses of other location restricted content, from different country’s Netflix and Prime catalogues, to British, African, and European services, from mainstream shows and movies to specialist documentaries and news.

We believe that our smart hub is by far the best plug-and-play system on the market. Given it works with your WiFi router, it automatically includes all iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Apple TVAmazon Fire TVChromecastRoku, and games consoles.

Finally, StreamLocator doesn’t limit the number of connections you use at any one time, either. If everyone in your house wants to access a different service in a different country at once, on every device they’ve got—they can!

How to watch MLB.com from anywhere in the world

Providing a virtual location to sidestep geo-blockades used to be best left to VPN and Smart DNS services. Now, the times are changing; we’re here to provide a better, more efficient option.

Our system never slows down your Internet speeds, unlike some VPN services that route you through busy or slow server locations. If we say we’ve cracked the service you need, then you’ll always get the access you need, even when other services prove unreliable.

There’s nothing more frustrating than buffering and bad connections during a big game, so why leave it to chance? Leave the heavy lifting to StreamLocator, and you’ll never be disappointed.

How to register for MLB.tv from outside the US

There are a couple of subscription options for MLB.tv. For an All Teams pass, you’ll pay a yearly subscription of $129.99 US. A Single Team pass is only $10 less at $109.99 US.

You can subscribe directly through the MLB.com website or via Amazon Prime through the MLB.tv app.

Many US services require a native credit card to subscribe but don’t panic; we’ve thought of that too! If you’re having problems signing up with your national credit card, visit our Statescard.com page, and we’ll walk you through the system to get you up and running without a hitch.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch MLB.com from outside the US?

While, until recently, they’ve been the commonly accepted methods for bypassing location blocks, they haven’t been the only ways to get around the geo-location tracking problem.

As you now know, we believe StreamLocator to be far superior to all methods, making light work of accessing all the games you want to watch, wherever you are.

How to unblock MLB.com

Setting up StreamLocator is simple.

When your smart hub arrives, plug it into any of the open ports on your WiFi router; follow a few simple instructions to activate your subscription, and that’s pretty much all it takes.

From then on, instead of connecting using your regular WiFi option, you’ll find a new one—STREAMLOCATOR— in your list. Switch over to that, and that’s it. We do the rest. Just access the apps and websites as you normally would, and leave the rest to our ingenious system.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch MLB.tv for free?

You’ll always need a subscription to access MLB’s range of streaming services, but what you won’t need from now on are subscriptions to different TV channels and networks to watch your team’s regional and national games. They’re all—finally—available in a single, easy to access platform.
