What happened to this app 3/5
I have been using this app for a few years and had been very happy with it during that time. It was very reliable with very few problems. That sure has change this season. The app crashes almost every time I use it. Not sure what has changed, but it definitely is not the same app it used to be. Too bad.
THIS APP IS WOW
Cool app, but always crashing and junk interface on apple products 1/5
Always one day away from canceling and just streaming off internet sites. App should make things easier but just frustrating for 24.99 a month
Update, yes, it’s up to date, restarted, brand new Apple TV with premium wi fi. Sometimes it even has the sound from one game on while the sound and display is another game. I know, reset it, but why does it have to do that? I restart the app and Apple TV before using and I still have to do it eventually during the game. Interface with Apple TV is problematic
No HDMI Out?!? 2/5
By brett bollman
A recent update has removed the ability to use an HDMI adapter with iOS... stating that you can’t watch video while screen recording is going. This is a major bummer. I frequently would play games for my boys in the back of our van via my phone and HDMI... bummed this has been taken away.
There are so many ways to screen capture video these days... how is taking this feature away from iOS going to stop people who want to capture video?!?
Last year I buy this app!!! 1/5
Not happy when I go to watch a video highlight I have to watch an advertisement first!!!!!
When double tapping the home button and switching back to this app from another app when you were on the Gameday tab—sometimes the app crashes.
Also how many times do i have to hide the same ad only to have the exact one appear minutes later?
Great App with one MAJOR issue 3/5
I love the app, it gives great insight into the game and has amazing features and content. It is an excellent app for anyone with a deep interest in baseball. However, the app has one huge problem: it crashes ALL THE TIME! Sometimes if you try to open it it crashes. Other times you try to launch a video and it crashes. Also, recently I have been watching videos of highlights and they launch fine, but if I try to rotate the video so it goes full screen, IT CRASHES. Once again, it’s an excellent app baseball and content/feature wise, but it crashes WAY too often.
Can't turn my phone sideways 1/5
Works great watching games until I turn my phone sideways and it crashes. Every. Time.
Can’t access games !!!!! Cubs are playing right now and can’t access !!!!!! Why am I paying $25 a month and not getting any better service ?? Could not watch Houston play in Texas yesterday .. I live in Alabama !!!!!
Great app; not currently stable 3/5
By Hiking Lizard
I’ve used this app for years - it’s a “must have” for baseball fans. Unfortunately, this years version is not stable on an iPad. Come on MLB - step up to the plate.
this is baseball !!!! 5/5
By stupefy kadavra!!
honestly first my dad gave me this app on my ipad and I did not know what this app is but now I use it all the time it has great coverage of all the baseball games that are going on it lets you do the game of the day and you get to watch games it shows you everything like the standings videos scores and you’re team I really suggest this app for any people who is in to baseball
Dropped SONY TVs 1/5
Every year I watched games on my Sony smart tv. This year I could log on but not watch any games on one TV. On the other I couldn’t even log on because the app never opened. It took a long time of writing back-and-forth before I finally got someone to admit that this year, 2019, MLB stopped supporting the app being used on Sony TVs. Why? I don’t want to watch it on my computer, or my iPhone. I bought my ginormous TV because it had the MLB app. This is so disappointing.
Great app 5/5
What happened to the live look-ins
You pay to watch ads? 1/5
I pay the yearly fee to follow games and watch highlights. However, this year every highlight has a 15 second or longer ad first. So I’ve stopped watching highlights on the app. I used to love this app but if even the paid version makes you watch ads, I’m done.
By Monkey 66
MLB At Bat is the worst app in all of professional sports without a doubt! You can’t even listen to the game through this app, you have to pay for it. This app needs a HUGE modern update to it.
Lock Video to Landscape 2/5
Every other legitimate video streaming app has figured this out, but not the MLB team. Why do I need to enable device rotation to view the ballgame in the right orientation? I have never wanted to watch the game with massive black bars above and below with my phone in portrait mode.
Outside of this major headache, I dislike the fact that whomever controls the stream often resumes the stream in the middle of the inning or ends the stream immediately after the last out is recorded. We want to see the celebration, the post-game interviews, and the rest of the broadcast.
Great app 4/5
Have the app for all iOS devices. Works great on all but Apple Watch. The newest alternate audio feature is nice to have on mobile finally. MLB.tv works great. The things that are missing are Pre & Post game (Tv &/or radio), Audio archive for mobile devices, Strike zone channel, Fantasy player tracking. The PIP feature is really nice, Quad screen for the iPad Pro would be really nice. Also Gameday audio on the Apple Watch thru Cellular is needed.
App has really gone downhill this season.... 4/5
Until the 2019 season, I thought this was the best sports app available. This season has seen significant deterioration. The app has become nothing more than a glorified promotional platform for whatever MLB is promoting at the moment. Pay $20 for the ad-free version and you’ll still get ads promoting MLB events and the like. The game recaps have gone from in depth news stories recapping the game, highlighting stories or key outcomes for both teams, to the 2019 approach of offering fluff stories about only one of the two teams, and often only about one play or one player. Also, I would like to see the option to view game scoring summaries without embedded videos- using an on / off switch to toggle videos being included or not. To be fair, this app is still one of the better sports apps - and certainly superior to the NFL and MLS apps in particular, but the app is certainly less excellent than in the past.
Keeps reverting to "hide scores" on AppleTV.
Keeps logging me out on carplay.
No local games. 3/5
The live feed is s l o w. Waiting on next pitch and MLB Tonight on TV breaks in to give an update for the next batter. Don’t subscribe until you check the blackout notices. The two teams within 200 miles of Austin are 100% blacked out for all regular season games.
The only streaming app that I have issues with 2/5
I stream YouTube tv and occasionally stream other apps along with mlb at bat. MLB AT bat is the only one that consistently has lag issues. It’s unwatchable about 80% of the time. Extremely disappointed considering I spend so much money on this every year.
Amateur Hour 1/5
By jack West
What a joke. This app is so broken it needs to be flushed. Whoever developed this app needs to be sent down to A ball.
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE BEEPIN’ ME.
Crashes Too Much 1/5
Have this app on both the iPhone and iPad...crashes on both about 50% of the time when it’s verifying. Have to restart to get it to work. Extremely frustrating especially when considering the cost of the subscription.
Can’t stream to my tv?! 1/5
It’s dumb you can’t stream using the hdmi adapter. What’s the point of the subscription then.
Apple TV interface is buggy 2/5
By Not Connected
The Apple TV version will not remember my selection for hiding scores. Occasionally it won’t let me switch games if a commercial has begun in the current game.
This app lets my daughter watch the Indians while she is away from the house
Red Sox 1/5
Can’t get Red Sox games home or away, blacked out and the only games I paid 115.00 for. Really stupid, will not buy ever again, save your money
Can’t even watch a game 1/5
If I could give it this a negative star I would. I subscribed so I could watch my Yankees play since I live in Washington but all that keeps popping up is it saying it’s all star weekend for only 40 bucks for the rest of the year I click on the price and it pops up saying your already subscribed. Does anybody know how to fix this issue?!?
Braves games 2/5
I am very disappointed in MLB at bat. Get rid of the ads at the bottom of the screen!
Why am I seeing ads in an app I paid for? 3/5
By Brigadier Gerard
Great app, but for one thing. I didn’t “buy” At Bat, I pay a yearly fee to use it. But after paying that fee, I am still seeing ads for things unrelated to baseball. Other apps offer ad-free versions for a one-time fee, but not MLB. What gives?
Good but not good enough 2/5
The content offered is great. Unfortunately, black out restrictions killed it for me. Located 300 miles from Houston and 450 miles from Dallas but I’m blacked out on Rangers and Astros games. And I don’t live in TX. Cumbersome most times logging in to my account. I felt certain I had chosen not to auto renew but was auto renewed.
Questionable update 5/5
I love MLB and use it daily! Please get that awful Outback Steakhouse commercial off. It makes me seasick and I have to leave the room! 🤢😂😂
Has to be one of the poorest apps I use. Half the time it doesn’t keep up with what’s going on in the game I am tracking plus doesn’t keep the other scores update.
Black outs 1/5
I thought I could watch my team. Very deceptive to find out after purchasing that I can’t watch my games and there is no refund.
They don’t want you streaming 1/5
I never want to know the scores beforehand!!!
I always set the app to hide scores. It never stays set and in some way or another they give away the scores in hoping I will not stream the game! Utterly shameful ploy and totally ruins this app for me.
This app was pretty good, until recently they have decided that my selection of “Hide Scores” isn’t what they want me to select. You see I stream my Yankees (because living in California the Dodgers are always blacked out for live games). Then at the end of the baseball day I stream recapped or condensed games by AppleTV or RokuTV. Now they change my selection after watching maybe one or two recapped games and display all the scores of the games!!! They even display the scores on some recapped games before making the final selection of deciding to stream the home team or away team. My guess is if I see the scores maybe I won’t stream the games as much because now I know the outcome, and why would I?
Put the standings back at the bottom of the screen, that’s incredibly annoying
Apple TV error 1/5
Constantly getting a generic error on the Apple TV app. Can’t even watch a game. Terrible
Spontaneous shutdown 3/5
Rely on this app a lot since games usually blacked out in our area but many times while app is open it will just spontaneously shut down.
Broken App 1/5
MLB.TV worked on every device until a week or so ago. I have access thru cable Extra Innings. MLB.TV no longer recognizes my access. MLB.TV customer service says solution is to uninstall and reinstall app on one device and sign back in with MLB credentials. That works—for a day. Have to delete, reinstall every day. MLB says call cable company. Cable says call MLB. FIX YOUR BROKEN APP!
Standings removed to promo gambling 1/5
MLB shows it’s true colors by hiding a useful feature so it can promote gambling.
Great Watch, but glitches 4/5
Really great product. Only issue is glitches. App often stops being able to open at specific innings, leaving you to search for your place again. App also has trouble opening at times.
MLB Is The Best 5/5
By Kiss My A Double 8
I love MLB. My dream Is to be on the Astros.
Apple Watch Won’t Update 3/5
7/5/19: for at least a week now the watch portion of this app will not properly update. It is still showing it’s the top of the 9th inning for a game which ended 10 hrs ago. Watch/phone have been in range the whole time, app is up to date, closed & opened both & when fully opening the app on the watch it gives the right info, just not from the modular view
4/4/15: off and on for a week now it won't let me login to watch or listen to games. really frustrating!! this is before and after the update that just came out today. please fix immediately!!
Audio Issues 3/5
Every time I watch a game on my Apple TV and want to switch to another game I still hear the broadcast from the first game even if that is over. Very annoying.
Used to work great, now it stinks 2/5
I don’t know if MLB fired their app developers but this app has worked like absolute garbage this year, across all platforms. Constant crashing on iPhone, Apple TV, and bugs on Fire Stick. Dunno what happened.
When you get an alert for a news story or video - something that’s not a scoring change - from the app and you tap the alert, it takes you to a viewing window which offers no way to either pop the story out into Safari or to share it. That’s such a weird missing feature! Because I know MLB wants people to share their stories, so why do they make it impossible for me to do that? If I see a story about how Jurisckson Profar got a grand slam and I want to share it, I have to go to google, search for the story, and share it separately. Totally frustrating and counter to enabling social engagement - which I know MLB wants. Add this feature!
Apple TV App Still Fails 1/5
By Super Snarfer
For months now, the hide scores option on the Apple TV app keeps turning itself on. MLB has been told about the problem countless times through these reviews and phone calls to their technical support line. They won’t even acknowledge the problem exists, let alone fix it.
They also seem to have convinced Apple to delete negative reviews of this app, mine included. Go ahead, MLB. I’ll just keep posting new ones until you fix the problem. You can’t squelch the truth, much as you might try.
shoddy and expensive. 2/5
This is the most expensive, and worst performing app I own. Little things like the calendar heading always says it’s February. Really, I want to gripe about the TV app. Hide scores does not work!! MLB works harder to find ways to keep you away from the game, instead of helping you be a fan. Money money money is all they care about.
Love the app, but 1 huge issue! 3/5
I love this app! I would give it 5 out of 5 stars but there’s been 1 huge issue over the course of this 2019 season! Every time I open my app I have to restore the purchase so I can watch highlights without ads popping up every time! I pay $19.99 at the beginning of each year and every time I log in it doesn’t recognize that and I have to restore the purchase! Everything is perfect except for that! Wish they could get that worked out.
