Ray Velazquez, 44, of Lucerne Valley shows his love and obsession with the Dodgers as he arrives for opening day against the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium April 6, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

Monday's opening day at Dodger Stadium marks the start of the season, but there's nothing new with the Dodger TV dispute.

About 70 percent of fans won't be able to catch a game on their TV this season, KPCC's Ben Bergman says, and while that's been a burden to many blue-blooded fans, it's been a boon to some sports bars and restaurants.

While Echo Park establishments like The Gold Room say business has remained steady, others have seen a slight uptick in patrons.

"We still get a lot of people regardless," Julia Blum, who works at Charlie's Trio, said. "But this year, it's even more. I've gotten about 20 calls from people today asking about the game."

Of course, your local watering hole isn't the only place to catch a game. Major League Baseball streams games online for paying customers, for $129.99 per year or $24.99 per month. Those games are in high definition and can be streamed in Spanish, according to the MLB's website.

But before you reach for your wallet: the MLB app only streams "out-of-market" games, meaning you can't watch Dodger games live in Los Angeles.

In the spirit of opening day, we offer a list of venues around our listening area where you can watch the season's games. We've called each to be sure they're planning on screening every game, but you might want to call ahead to confirm before going out of your way,
