Now, since spring training is mere weeks away, the long drought of watching real time baseball is over. Sort of.
Being as how the congregation here is fairly astute and savvy, I wanted to open up a discussion on what options people go with. Maybe cable, with cancelling as soon as the season ends is actually the best option. Perhaps someone knows a great way to circumvent MLB.tv blackouts that don't involve intricate use of proxies that destroy picture quality. Maybe there's a top secret way to just purchase a subscription to SNY.
First though is my fail method from last season. I live in Brooklyn and don't have cable. I ordered MLB.tv, but only used it to watch out of market fantasy relevant games. Ran it through a crappy old PC, so the quality was often kind of choppy. When it came to Mets games, first I tried using P2P torrents of live games, but most of the time they were delayed a solid five minutes and the picture quality was so bad I couldn't follow the ball. I built my own HD antenna, so I could watch the six or seven regular tv games ok enough. Went to bars for a few games, but with the amount spent there I may as well have gotten cable and stayed home.
What about you guys/gals?
