Since it appears that 2012 will be like the rest of the previous years and we will not get Comcast Philadelphia. I was looking at options for being able to watch the phillies this summer. One option would be to set up mlb.tv on my Samsung BluRay player. The only problem is, since I am in the Phillies "blackout" area, I would not be able to use this service without a workaround.
Can anyone give me any ideas on how I can watch the Phillies this summer?
It is not specific to Roku. This is simply the MLB.TV account that allows you to access games online. You can use your PC, mobile devices with the At Bat APP, Roku, AppleTV, PS3 (which is by far the best steaming device for MLB.TV), XBox360 (new this year), Boxee, WD TV (new this year), some blue-ray players, and TVs that have the MLB At Bat APP.
In order to use any of these devices, including the Roku, you have to have the premium account.
There are "IP Spoofers" that can be used so that box can appear to be at another locale.. (MLB uses ISP IP addresses to determine where you are)..(u could watch on a pc atleast)
I use location spoofer on my iPhone and iPad and it works perfectly. I set my location somewhere in Mexico and none of the games are blacked out, including the post season, Fox Saturday games, my local teams, and Sunday Night games.
