What are one's options for watching games other than those broadcast by ESPN?

You can watch replay of the games on Twitch through https://twitch.tv/kbo1 to kbo5. The commentary is in Korean.

They used to show it live through Twitch but that may be region locked now.

My desire to root for the Lions because I have a hat from them because I liked their logo is going poorly. I hope that people still watch when MLB comes back.

My choice of the Giants is paying off! 3-0! Julio Franco can teach anyone to hit.

I enjoyed the interview with Eric Thames, he came off as a likeable guy, so that tipped the scales to root for the Dinos for me.

Not a big deal but with that in mind, in the OP I guess it's Eric Thames that played for the Dinos, It says Marcus Thames, who played for the Tigers and Yankees and is a different guy.

i noticed this and thought it might just be a Melvin/B.J. deal and i hadn't been paying attention for long enough to remember that his name used to be Marcus

I think this is a pretty good draft class overall. It's really shaping up that way because of the water types.

I wonder how much of it is that they are literally just talking over someone else's broadcast

I am genuinely surprised with all the money ESPN has that they cannot manage to get their own feed of the game

It's probably not worth it for them. The time and expense it'd take just to get a feed of a league nobody's going to watch as soon as the MLB starts wouldn't make a lot of sense.

I am thinking of literally keeping track of how often the announcers actually talk about what is happening on the field

It has to be like once every 11 or 12 pitches and maybe like 1 hit a inning

Yeah seriously, it's annoying hearing the constant comparisons to MLB and how every foreign player is just yearning to get back. We know this isn't the MLB, show us what is different and who the big stars are.

It reminds me of watching American commentary on lucha libre vs. the mexican commentary

But at least the American commentary there has the hosts eat shrooms before the event

Korean soccer also started today but there is no USA broadcaster.

I thought the announcers were trying to acclimate the western audience to the game with all these interviews but man... if they are showing disrespect as posts have mentioned... gently caress off espn.

To give the announcers a break, they might not be used to waking up so early to broadcast games so that's why they are crap now.

It's region-locked in Canada, at least, and we don't even get ESPN. Which is actually why I came to this thread: I'm bored and I crave watching sport, is there any way to watch KBO live and legitimately in Canada? I'll pay money at this point.
