MLB To Show Games Online, But Blacking Out Local Areas: Major League Baseball plans to Webcast nearly 1,000 games this season — but it will use Internet-location technology to black out most viewers’ home teams. The service, called MLB.TV, is expected to be announced as early as today by New York-based MLB Advanced Media. This service, which will only be available to computer users with broadband Internet access, is expected to cost $14.95 a month or $79.95 for the season. A pay-per-view option will cost $3 or $4 a game. Spring-training games will be available at no charge starting Thursday, and for-pay service will start March 25.
