Watching the Dodgers on TV In LA

Watch the Dodgers on MLB TV

Watching the Los Angeles Dodgers on TV, or online, in Los Angeles, is impossible if you do it by simply paying for MLB At Bat and tuning in. Why? Because, in the era of cord cutters, Spectrum or Time Warner Cable require that you sign up for their bloated TV package. If you have MLB At Bat the game will have a blackout in LA. For the 4th year, I will be forced to watch the 2019 baseball season by using a DNS service.

The same can be said for the St Louis Cardinals because of their deal with Fox Sports Midwest. Using an OTA (over the air) antenna? Well then you won’t be seeing Goldschmidt hit bombs in Busch.

Workaround for MLB Black Out

For 3 years I have used a service called Unlocator. I am in tech so I am going to have a much different setup than most but they do offer guides for every device you can possibly imagine. I have this service configured on my router vs my devices and prefer this method because I configure it once and allows us to watch the Dodgers on MLB At Bat in Los Angeles without having to subscribe to a cable plan. It would also work for other areas where MLB blackouts exist in local areas

I don’t want to beat you over the head with technical details unlike other solutions used to workaround MLB blackouts. I want it to “just work”. If you are interested in the details check the FAQ page on the Unlocator website (link above)

Go Dodgers! Bleed Blue!

  1. Is your feed working tonight? I was using unlocator on my apple TV yesterday (opening day) no problems. Today it’s blocking me on Spectrum internet in LA. If use Auto DNS it says blackout. With Unlocator it’s says contact support. You have any tips? Thanks.

  2. I have had no issues, Spectrum internet, also in LA, the only difference is I use a Fire TV. As far as I know the Apple TV uses location services differently. Did you ever get it to work?

  3. I did get it to work. They recommended I go to the unloactor site and toggle the ESPN/MLB setting can’t remember exactly which setting it was. Their support is great. They got back to me within the hour. I also restarted the modem. Between the two I was up in plenty of time to see them blow it in the 13th! Thanks for following up. Go Blue!

  4. FYI Unlocator is not working again today. I am not sure if MLB is actively thwarting them but may have consider a VPN if this keeps up.
