I live in the Los Angeles DMA and can't receive the Dodgers (due to a carriage dispute with Time Warner Cable SportsNet) on DIRECTV, even with the MLB Extra Innings package. Since DTV now includes MLB.TV, I decided to fire up my Apple TV and use the MLB.TV app. To my surprise, I can watch Dodger games! I can also use my iPad and Android devices to see the Dodgers.  This only works at home; when I am at work I get the usual "this game is blacked out in your area" nag screen.

Are you watching it live or the reun several hours after it's been on air? And is it the Dodgers home broadcast or the other teams?

Sounds to me like MLB.tv's server is "seeing" boogie's home IP address as being outside Dodgers territory, for whatever reason.
trainman is Jim Ellwanger

As I posted in the other thread, I am seeing odd blackout enforcement.
