    I dont have cable and last year I wanted to get but I found out that since my IP address was from Massachusetts all of the Red Sox games were blacked out.

    What's the easiest way to get past this issue?

    I had a DD-WRT router where I connected part of my network to a VPN service like this one:

    Then I used AppleTV to watch MLB. I only had part of my network connected to the VPN because the Internet download speeds through the VPN were only 1-3 mbps if I remember right. A much simpler setup is to just connect to a VPN through your computer and watch MBL through your web browser.
