MLB.tv is an American subscription-based service that brings you live Major League Baseball matches. However, MLB fans in the US who already bought a subscription don’t get to watch all the games on MLB.TV due to blackouts restrictions. In order to circumvent this issue, fans of the sports can turn to Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.

How to Avoid MLB.TV Blackouts Using Unlocator Smart DNS

If you live in a territory that’s broadcasting the game on television, you’ll notice this error message when you stream your match:

“We’re sorry. We have determined that you are located inside one of the applicable Club’s home television territories and are therefore blacked out of watching the game you selected. Live Audio of this game is available as part of your MLB.TV subscription.”

Unlocator allows you to bypass the MLB blackout restrictions by simply changing to its DNS. All you have to do is create a free trial and then change the DNS on your device according to the setup guides. Once done, you can watch any game from MLB regardless of when and where the team is playing.

How to Bypass MLB.TV Blackouts With Unlocator VPN

Unlocator VPN is another way to avoid the blackout restrictions imposed on MLB.TV. It simply does that by enabling you to use an IP address different from your own. For instance, if the game is not being broadcasted on TV in Detroit, then connecting to a server there is your perfect solution. Upon connecting, you’ll receive an IP address in that territory and you’ll be able to stream MLB matches despite physically being in a blacked out district.

Not only that, but Unlocator VPN also enhances your device’s security when connected to the internet. It uses the latest military-grade encryptions that shield your connection from any possible cyber attack or monitoring attempt. This, of course, protects your data and anonymizes your internet approach even in countries with high internet censorship.

All you have to do is sign up for a free Unlocator trial, install the application on your Mac or Windows, and connect to a server where your match is not being aired on live television. Eventually, you’ll be able to stream MLB.TV anywhere in the world without going through blackouts again.

Please note that the MLB app for iOS and Android is not supported due to the use of location services, which can’t be bypassed. This includes Fire Stick/TV, Nexus Player, Kindle, and any other Android-based device.
