Nope.

"Postseason Live Blackout: Due to Major League Baseball exclusivities, during the MLB Postseason, all live games except for those games for which Authenticated Access is available, will be blacked out in the United States (including the territories of Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands) and Canada. If you are an MLB.TV Subscriber in an area subject to blackout each of these games will be available as an archived game approximately 90 minutes after the conclusion of the applicable game.

Postseason.TV: Subscribers to Postseason.TV, available only during the MLB Postseason, will be able to view live alternative video feeds (excluding the broadcast feed) from MLB Postseason games without blackout restrictions.

Live Audio of those games subject to the blackout restrictions reflected above is available as part of any MLB.TV subscription, as part of MLB.com Gameday Audio."

I wonder if any of the dns services would support this. As the playoffs are available as long as you are outside of USA and Canada? Or do they tie your account to how you paid?

I reside in Toronto. Does that mean even during regular season, most Blue Jays games are blacked out?

No, you will get to watch all Blue Jays games.

Does anyone know what the picture quality is like with this subscription on Kodi? Have been getting by watching 480ip on Sports devil but may bite the bullet for the mlb.tv subscription if the quality is better.

Can anyone confirm if you sign up with a Cdn credit card / address and use Unblock-Us that you can get around the black-out? This is a great deal to watch the remainder of the Jays season and potential playoffs (but only if they are not all blacked out!)

Yes, DNS services support MLB.TV.

Like Netflix, MLB.TV uses your IP address to find out where you are connecting from.

"Note MLB.com live game blackouts are determined in part by IP address. MLB.com At Bat live game blackouts are determined using one or more reference points, such as GPS and software within your mobile device. The Zip Code search is offered for general reference only."

From those that have this, how much data/bandwidth does streaming a game (HD or SD) usually consume? Does that number at all differ if watching on web vs mobile app (assuming you get the premium)?

No need to use Unblock-US, I've been using MLB.TV since the beginning of the season in Mississauga and no blackouts of any Jays games.

Blackouts are determined by local broadcaster, Rogers lifted all blackout restrictions for MLB games in Canada 2 years ago.

Does that include playoffs? $25 including post season would be amazing!

This guy on Reddit says yes, playoffs and World Series, but only because Rogers lifted all blackout restrictions in Canada

This is probably the only time I'd ever say this in my life but... good on Rogers.

Quality shouldn't be dependent on app (likely dependent on bandwidth). I watch games on the At Bat app on my phone, the MLB.TV app on Xbox One and the MLB website on my laptop and all are in HD.
