So these playoff games count as national blackout games. What the heck is with that? I'm not going to watch MLB.TV if I had access to a television! I got MLB.TV so I could watch in the damn office!

This really has to be addressed. Internet is not a competition with TV. You think I really want to watch the games in choppy, low-resolution if I had a choice?

(Sorry... had to rant here).

Nationally televised games are never on the web, especially playoff games.

That said, you can watch, for free, a live feed (http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/hotcorner/index.jsp).

That sucks, I could've sworn one of the things MLB.TV was advertising was 'the rest of the regular AND the entire postseason'

I got burned by this same issue last year. I made sure I cut my subscription before it renewed today.

That's on purpose. It's not meant to televise the games online as much as to augment the TV broadcast. Thus, you get ambient sound with different video feeds [pitcher, hitter, dugout, whatever]. It's a cool feature, sure, but they should have both.

MLB has been a huge pain in the butt for me. Between blackouts (I don't have cable) and a huge lag/ choppiness, it was a huge waste of money for me. That TBS stream is useful. I would have went to class today if I would have known I could have watched the game online.

They always advertised the postseason as Gameday Audio, and games video archived 45 minutes after the game concludes.

The only negative about the Hot Coner is that the cameras are fixed...you cannot see what occurs in the field. You see the pitcher throw the ball, the ball get hit then you just have to wait to see if the guy stays on base or if he gets thrown out...
