    Today's London game does not have blackout I'm about to watch on local fox and 721

    I know blackout rules usually apply to the night game "baseball night in america "

    It was available for me on 721 & my local FOX Station as well. That said, So Much for if it is available on your local FOX it will be Blacked Out on the Extra Innings Channel.

    The only time that blackout happens on fox is when your local team plays they treat it like it’s on your regional sports network and you will be able to see it not Looking at broadcast maps too see who’s showing what across the country

    And that very thing is what’s wrong with that MLB on FOX deal. If you live in a teams territory and your local FOX station doesn’t carry the team in your viewing market, you cannot see that game. It has been happening to my area alot this year.

    They need to change it just like the NFL. If your local FOX station is carrying one of the 3 FOX MLB games on a Saturday Night the other 2 games that aren’t on your local station should be in the clear on Extra Innings Channels. But it’s not that way.

    Looking at my DIRECTV guide for Tuesday night, no, MLB channel is not carrying the game. Just Fox.

    FOX is Exclusive for the MLB All Star Game & World Series.

    "Fox Sports Go" is the app for all Fox RSN's and Fox College Sports.

    "Fox Sports" has a separate app for the Fox Network, FS1, FS2, BTN, and Fox Deportes
    The ASG will be available there.

    Surprisingly, the game also appears on the schedule for the MLB.tv app.

    Don't those require verification that you subscribe to those channels via an authorized provider? And since Fox has been removed from his DIRECTV package, will he be able to watch those streaming channels?

    Interesting thought ... so my NBC (wavy10) is also part of Nextstar dispute but I'm able to log on to nbc app to see nascar race ...

    So app authentication must be different ...

    The question hasn't come up before, so not sure what will happen. Maybe no one updates the database of who is authorized during these 'temporary outages?

    So, are you able to watch the game?

    My mlb.tv account on my Fire TV and Roku both said I had to watch on Fox. I went to the FOXNOW app on my Fire Tv and after re-validating my account with DIRECTV, I could watch it on my Fire TV.

    Yes watching via mlb.tv as the feed is faster than fox sports app . Mlb.tv was like 3 seconds behind OTA. Fox Sports app had a huge delay . But both worked


    Yes I did have to "link" mlb.tv to DirecTV, I did that before the game started based on the message


    The best part of the national /online feed is I dont have to see that dispute banner like on the OTA feed

    Nice to know that DIRECTV doesn't bother to remove your access while there is a contract dispute.
