UNITED STATES (INCLUDING THE TERRITORIES OF GUAM AND THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS) AND CANADA

Regular Season Local Live Blackout: All live games on MLB.com At Bat™ are subject to local blackouts. Such live games will be blacked out in each applicable Club's home television territory (except for certain home television territories for which MLB.com At Bat™ may offer in-market subscription services). If a game is blacked out in an area, it is not available for live game viewing. Games provided through MLB.com At Bat™ may be available approximately 90 minutes after the conclusion of the game as an archived game (archived games are blackout free).

In addition, note:

  • These blackout restrictions apply regardless of whether a Club is home or away and regardless of whether or not a game is televised in a Club's home television territory.
  • All live Toronto Blue Jays games are blacked out throughout the entire country of Canada.
  • Additional teams may also be subject to blackout in parts of Canada based on their region.
  • All live games will be blacked out in the U.S. territories of Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands during the MLB regular season.
  • Select condensed games may be made available on MLB.com At Bat™. Condensed games are blackout free.

Please note: MLB.com At Bat™ live game blackouts are determined using multiple reference points, including GPS. MLB.com At Bat™ uses the Core Location software of your iPhone. If this software is not functioning properly, MLB.com At Bat™ may not be able to determine your location correctly. The zip code search is offered for general reference only.

If you think we have inaccurately determined your blackout restrictions when you try to watch a live MLB game on MLB.com At Bat™ you can let us know by opening your MLB.com At Bat™ application and going to Extras, clicking on Tips and Support and tapping on Email Us.
