OT: Streaming Tigers Game on iPhone
Fox Sports has all the rights and it pretty much is impossible to find anything that has it. Some people will suggest some shady 3rd party links but I wouldn't feel comfortable using them.
I just watch the mlb gamecast and it is pretty up to date (much better than ESPN).
Not sure if it works during game broadcasts because it may be blacked out but if you get the tunein radio app and stream 97.1 The Ticket (Detroit) you may be able to get the game.
The legal way is you can bite the bullet and get the MLB at bat app for the iPhone or android. If you live outside the broadcast zone you can pay the full 125 for the year and watch all the tigers games. Otherwise, you can pay the radio gamecast price which I think is something like 3 bucks a month and you will get all the home and away streams for every game.
i use tune-in radio and was able to listen to the opening day game on 107.3 out of grand rapids, i hope it wasnt a fluke.
I imagine any App that carries their station (there are a few) would carry the Tigers game.
They usually end up blocking it shortly after it starts and it is way behind. I listened to the first game on Tune-in and eventually went to the Jim Rome show.
I stream every game from At Bat '12. It costs $15 for the whole season, and I love it! Plus I get to follow my Cubbies on off Tiger days :-)
Throw 'em the heater Ricky
Get At Bat '15. Not that expensive either
I think At Bat is the one with audio too, so you'll be able to listen to Tigers radio
I gave in today and just paid for the MLB At Bat subscription. It was getting too frustrating trying to find a site that would stream it and I get horrible FM reception in my office.
How often is the game blacked out? I bought MLB TV Premium for the year to watch the games, but since I live in the Toledo area it is blacked out. Will this happen often?
I am pretty sure they will all be blacked out. I think Toledo is within the blackout radius for Tigers games on MLB TV Premium. There are ways around it but I think it would be frowned upon posting them here.
I just went ahead and paid the 15$ for the At Bat app. Thanks for the help !!
