Depends on where you are. If you are in Chicago, yes, it will be blacked out. If you live somewhere else, you should be fine.

Crap, I just checked and apparently I am wrong. I could have sworn I remember watching an ESPN Sunday night game on MLBTV last year. Where are you exactly? This is the message I got:

We're sorry! Your data indicate that you are prevented from watching this game LIVE due to national live broadcast restrictions. During national TV broadcasts, fans in the US, Japan, US Virgin Isls, Guam and S. Korea are blacked out. These games are indicated on the schedule with a grey icon

If you are not in one of those countries, then you should still be fine. If you are, sorry for getting your hopes up. :(:

Ok, good. If you go to the MLB.TV page and click on the game right now you should know for sure. If you don't get that blackout message, you should be fine.

This game is blacked out everywhere. ESPN and FOX games are blacked out everywhere. Gotta go to Singleton and Farmio. Oh well, at least Farmio is still around.

Check your credit card statements or online balances over the next few days.

I was charged for the MLB.TV and Gameday Audio (authorized yesterday)even though I cancelled both in March. I called today and they will refund my credit card in 7 - 10 business days. If you buy any MLB.com broadcast service it is conveniently automatically renewed unless you cancel prior to the start of the following season.

I went with the Sox Pride Fan Club package with Gameday Audio included.
