mlb . tv

Does anyone know what the "subject to blackouts" means when ordering mlb.tv? Assuming it means that some of the games will not be aired, but how many would it be? The blackout team for MN zip code is the twins so how do you know what games will be shown and how many or are all the games blacked out? thanks,

Blake

I can't recall how it worked, but I don't think you will be able to watch the twins games if they are broadcast on FSN.

I use to have MLBtv when i was at school in Madison and got all the twins games, but i have never tried it living back in MN.

I would call someone and see what they say about getting twins games in your homestate...

The thing that really ticks me off is when the Twins aren't on TV, they are still blacked out on MLB.tv so you can't watch them there either.

You use to get games that weren't on FSN but you would have no announcers...just a fixed camera.

It was something else.

My interpretation of MLB.tv is that if you live in a blackout zipcode for that team then you can't view ANY games even if they're not aired here.

You can however watch the game once its completed, just not live!

kind of defeats the purpose of it them for me. Would of liked to have been able to watch all twins games, but can you watch every game they play after its completed then or just some of them?...thanks for the info,

I think you can watch everyone other than a nation blackout (not 100% sure) I do know they have a lot of those Afternoon games that are usually radio only!

If i remember right, if its a radio only game you get the away team announcers or no announcers at all...its wierd...kind of like a town team game.

      You can use the clam plate with the k-drill, they make an adapter. The K-drill recommends a minimum of 725 or 750 for torque, so you almost have to get the higher end drills. The newer Clam has the gear box which will double your torque with a 2:1 gear ratio. You can pick up the conversion box for $70. They had a deal on those at the show last weekend, as well as the K-drill. The K-drill cuts through the ice like butter, if you get the clam plate and conversion box, you should be able to still get double the torque then. So Clam plate $70, plus the Clam conversion box ($70), and add in the K-drill ($215), and I already have a drill. Brings the total up to $355. But don't have to purchase gas or propane or, light weight, no fumes. I will let everyone know how it works out.
