On Friday, it wasn’t.
On Friday, there were hardware issues with MLB.TV and I think half of the games lost their feeds and audio for viewers. A lot of fans were frustrated that they could not watch their teams play. And if they did, they were forced to watch the feed from the opposing team’s broadcasters.
(For those of you who don’t know, MLB.TV is a service you can get from Major League Baseball to watch out of market games of your favorite teams. Since I live in Los Angeles now, getting my fix of the Oakland A’s through MLB.TV is a huge blessing to me.)
A’s on the left, Giants on the right.
A couple nights ago I was working a late shift at NFL Network and it was a slow news day. So in order to get my fix of my Bay Area roots, I decided to watch some baseball.
As you know, I am an A’s fan so I had to watch my team play. Fortunately I am subscribed to MLB.TV so I easily got a chance to stream the A’s-Jays game on my computer screen.
And since the Giants were playing the Dodgers, they were on local TV and I got a chance to enjoy the awesome voice of Vin Scully.
Very glad that even though I am away from the Bay, stuck in LA, I still have access to my hometown teams.
