Streaming Seattle Mariners games on Root Sports

Will Comcast allow live streaming of ALL Seattle Mariners MLB games in Oregon for 2018?   Also, if subscribed to, would ALL games be available on Root Sports . . . or will there be blackouts for home games?

No. No streaming locally. Very frustrating. We live in NW washington and subscribe to MLB AtBat and are Comcast Xfinity customers with MLB Xtra Innings to watch the SF Giants as well as the Mariners. When we travel we can watch the Giants on MLB or on Xfinity Streaming. But for the Mariners when away from home MLB TV says to login through your cable provider. We log on through Xfinity streaming app and it says you must login through Root Sports. When we login through the Root Sports App it says it is unavailable for your provider (Xfinity). What!!?? Root FAQS suggest you contact Xfinity. I contacted them all and they all apologize but say Root has no contract with Xfinity, or Dish Network. So it appears we are stuck listening to AtBat.

Yah, that stinks, but all you have to do to get around blackouts when travelling is log into your home DVR, which you can do from anywhere in the world, start recording the game, and then just watch it (practically live) by playing it from your DVR.

You can no longer schedule recordings remotely
