How does mlb.com determine which market you're in, so it can apply the black out restrictions for mlb.tv?

makes me think it's the zip code your credit card goes to, but this question
makes it sound like it's ip-based. So how is it done?
I'm a life-long Cards fan, but since I live within their market, I can't watch the majority of their games on mlb.tv. If it's a matter of credit card zip codes, I have a sympathetic uncle in Portland, OR who would gladly let me use his credit card. If it's ip-based, however, I'm not sure if I'm techie enough to create a successful work-around. Any ideas, guesses, and/or suggestions?
