Idea: Use the Buddy System to Get Around MLB.tv Blackout Restrictions

Can anyone confirm if this is possible?

If you know someone else that wants to purchase the MLB.tv video package, but both live in the cities your favorite teams play in, it might be possible to purchase the subscription, then simply trade accounts.

Example:

I’m in Brooklyn, Gavin’s in Baltimore. I want to watch the Yankees and Gavin was to hate himself by watching the Orioles. I give Gavin my login information and he gives me his. That way, my account is from NYC and shamefully watches Orioles games and Gavin’s account is from Baltimore and triumphantly watches Yankees games.

Commenters, please help me out if this is possible!
