Thanks to high-speed broadband and mlb.tv‘s streaming video service, I’m about to watch, live, from Korea, the Red Sox take on the Cardinals in Game 2 of the World Series. All for $2.95.
or so I thought: after paying and logging in and watching a pre-game
show, I got this message: “We’re sorry! Your data indicate that you are
prevented from watching this game LIVE due to national live broadcast
restrictions. During national TV broadcasts, fans in the US, Japan, US
Virgin Islands, Guam and S. Korea are blacked out. These games are
indicated on the schedule with a grey icon.” Turns out it’s on
TV. How silly do I feel? Not to mention $2.95 poorer.
Who needs this internet thing, anyway.)
