The MLB blackouts are extremely annoying to say the least. However, there is a pretty nifty way to bypass these blackouts on any device.
The solution is Unlocator, which is a DNS service that will allow you to hide your real location from all the major streaming services including MLB. Unlocator works on Computers, Apple TV, iPad, iPhone, Roku, Smart TVs, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and many other devices.
Guide for Bypassing MLB Blackouts
In order to start using Unlocator to bypass MLB blackouts please follow these few steps:
- Create a free Unlocator trial
- Follow the setup guide for your device
- Restart your device
- Enjoy MLB without any kind of blackout
This is all there is to it. Apart from removing the MLB blackout you can also use Unlocator to change Netflix region and much more.
So How Does Unlocator Bypass the MLB Blackout?
The Unlocator service is a DNS service. DNS is the technology used by all Internet connected devices, which tells your device what servers to connect to when opening apps and websites. Unlocator routes the few DNS requests used by MLB to detect your location outside the US. As a result the MLB blackout will not kick in even if you are located in a location that would normally be blacked out.
The great thing about this approach is that your Internet connection is not slowed down and all the streaming between you and MLB works as it normally would.
