Apple Watch support useless 2/5
I want to second the previous review about the Apple Watch being non-functional. It is now 3:20 pm and the watch still says the game will start at 1:05 pm. Sometimes it works, mostly doesn’t. Pressing the watch face in the app brings up the never ending “spinny thing”. The functions are good ideas but somebody needs to make them work.
What did my $20 pay for? 1/5
I paid $20. I still can’t see live games. What was that $20 for?
Ads! Ads! Ads! 1/5
They changed things this year with at bat. Now you have to watch 15 seconds of ads to view each 15 second highlight video. What?!
The app has been really good. It’s radio broadcasts are what has made me a recent baseball fan. This makes it less enjoyable to follow. There should be a buy out for the ads or something. The app went from great to frustrating...
Ads play over Videos 1/5
Can't watch the videos because the ads play over them. All I get to watch is an ad and no baseball! Boo MLB. Boo Ads. Boo paying for something and only getting to see ads instead of what you pay for.
Watch Complications 1/5
The watch complication still does not work properly. This is the third year in a row I’ve been trying to use it. It is supposed to show current score on the watch face but it just won’t cooperate. It will work fine for a game or two, and then not update at all for days. Then work for a few innings and then go back to not updating the score. I’ve reinstalled numerous times, toggled settings, notifications, data usage... anything I can think of to get it to work. I thought for sure by last season, after all the trouble in 2016 of tying to have it work consistently, they would figure out the issues. But no. All of 2017 was bad. Now it’s 2018 and STILL not working right. Why? I’ve seen others complaining of the exact same problem. So it’s not just me and my watch/iPhone. This is an MLB app, not some cheap 3rd party app. This should be fixed quickly and easily. So frustrating year after year.
Notification issue 4/5
By Tyler Palkovitz
I tend to get the same notification twice in a row. I’m wondering where this came from and I can’t figure out why. Can you please help me on fixing this issue? Also, I only get a few notifications before not getting any.
Too many ads 1/5
Same ads, every break.
Ridiculous blackout policy. If I were near a TV, I could use the tv.
Watch app scoreboard doesn't work. Just spins.
Canceled my MLB.tv subscription due to bad customer service.
Volume overlay needs improvement, but good app 3/5
MLB, I love you and this app, but can we talk about the volume overlay? Other video-playing apps are integrating volume controls that don’t cover the middle of the screen. It would be really great if MLB At Bat would join that esteemed group. Thanks!
Stupid app, too many ads! 1/5
Way too many ads. I've tried to watch a few videos once in a while, but whenever I do, it plays ads when the video is playing, and you have to watch a 15 second ad to watch an 8 second highlight, so the clip isn't even there when you finish watching the buffering ad!! It gets frustrating! I paid for this app, so I expect to have no ads and full access, but I get none of that! Come on MLB!
Cheated me out of $20 1/5
By Mile High Mess
Purchased MLB.tv in At Bat app, still not authorized to watch live games. Cheated out of $20 and now I have to call to cancel to prevent auto renewal. Very disappointed
New Update randomly closes...Please fix it. 2/5
Using latest update on my iPad Pro (iOS 11.2.6) and the app just randomly closes while streaming game feeds. This has happened also while listening to audio only feeds and game day content. Please check this out MLB as opening day is fast approaching. 👍
Former 5 star subscriber 1/5
I have always loved MLB at Bat I use it daily and have been a premium subscriber for as long as it has existed. With this seasons updates they have introduced advertising which is not only obnoxious but is also interfering with the functionality of the application. If MLB wants to annoy those users not paying for a subscription so be it. But I have been a paid subscriber as long as its been available and I do not appreciate flashing annoying advertising embedded within the app. Please fix this.
“Commercial in Progress” and “Resume” on Replays 1/5
Commercial progress on Replays????why is that. Baseball is long game, could please cut the commercials on replays. And no Resume option on Replays?????and please importance on Android TV.
A Step Back From Last Year 2/5
I have this app on my PS4 I get it every season starting with spring training so I can watch every game. Why would u get rid of the old fast forward feature? We used to be able to just skip by the half inning now it’s a fast forward bar ? It’s a huge step in the wrong direction because that was a great feature that you had last season. I really don’t like the set up of this years at all. I’m hoping there’s an update that fixes this b4 opening day
Have been mlb subscriber for years. Usually there are no buffering issues. Every preseason game thus far with chromecast has buffered so much that I can barely watch. It pauses every 5 seconds. I have 200mbps service- so it’s not speed. I also cast Netflix and Hulu with zero issues. Please, mlb- fix this issue. Otherwise I will have to cancel service as it is impossible to watch
Love the app but why did I pay 20 dollars if I can’t live stream? 4/5
By Matt iPhone 5c
Love the app but I paid 20 dollars for the annual subscription and I can’t watch live feeds? Did I misunderstand something?
Solid app, but audio on Chromecast needs to be supported 4/5
I love MLB At Bat. I love baseball on radio and this app is perfect for that. And it’s reliable. But although it has Chromecast support for televised games, it does not have it for radio games - nor does it support Chromecast Audio. In this day and age this seems a glaring oversight; with Chromecast I’d have no concern about an incoming call interrupting the game the way I do with Bluetooth.
Death by ads 1/5
It’s a little ridiculous that you get to pay $90 for MLB.tv and then have to watch 15 seconds ads before you can see any highlights on the app. Make an ad free MLB.tv only app or stop the ads for subscribers.
Lots to fix before opening day! 1/5
When you cast a game to your TV it starts at the beginning of the game with no ability to go live. When watching live on your phone there are only options to go forward or backward 30 seconds. With no ability to go back an inning!
The MLB.tv website isn't much better with the removal of quad game viewing!
Distorted audio on the Cubs games Cubs feed. 1/5
The announcers are distorted every time they say something too hot and the stream sounds worse than an MP3 and I have a lot of bandwidth! There’s no reason for there to be distortion this day in age. You guys need to figure out at what point it’s distorting and correct it, whether it’s the input or when it goes through the app... it needs to be looked at. Get your engineers on it...
Crashes since last update 2/5
By Worlds of words
Until this last update, this app was my favorite. Now it crashes. I can’t listen to games. I can’t see scores.
What the hell 1/5
I paid $20 for MLB at bat for the year and the app just stays on the MLB logo loading screen. Ridiculous
It’s crap - $20 and you can’t watch games or listen! 1/5
I paid for the premium or what I thought it was, $20 and it’s the same as the free crap! Waste of money!!!!
Can’t watch games in your home town team 1/5
By Hungry guy still waiting
App will not let you watch home games from the city you live in ... with a subscription
WHY DID YOU GET RID OFTHE PITCH ANALYZER?? 4/5
By Slugga and Balla
not sure why you guys got rid of this but there was a time on mlb.com and on the app where you could look at all the info on the pitcher and what he threw and how often he threw it and also how much break each of his pitches would have. You also had a feature which showed his go-to outpitch and his pitch tendencies. It’s all gone now and idk why you guys did this. Instead it just says “Called Strike”, with no pitch track and no info on the pitch that was thrown. Idk wats up with that but i would like to know ASAP because it seems like you guys cut back on the features of the app and didn’t add anything in. You should be lucky i gave u guys 4 stars and not 2 or 3. Please assess this issue soon.
Doesn't work 1/5
By Biggest Yankees fan
I can never get on and it never gives me the correct states
Great app 4/5
Love this app on my phone. When I'm not able to watch a game because I'm at work it's great to be able to check the app for game stats. I really like checking standings, roster info, and getting club-specific news.
I pay yearly for MLB TV so I can games through the app on my phone, TV, and computer(they do offer a generous student discount.
My only disappointment is in regards to the watch app is that it doesn't update quickly at all. The game will be over and my watch still says its in the 5th or 6th inning. Also it has inaccurate standings. It will say my team is 7-6 when they're 7-2. I am a huge baseball fan and work during many games so being able to have accurate and up to date scores on my wrist would be nice. It otherwise defeats the purpose of the watch app.
I cant watch anything 5/5
I upgraded my account to premium and i cant watch anything. It tells me i have to upgrade my account which i already did. What do i do
Crashes frequently 1/5
By Public Radio Fan
This latest update of At Bat 11.01 crashes frequently when I try to view Gameday and Previews. Please update and fix.
Crashes CONSTANTLY 1/5
I love this app, and the service that .tv provides but this latest update crashes incessantly. Whenever I’m watching a game and switch the overlay screens it crashes. Sometimes it crashes randomly while reading. Incredibly unstable!
No box score? 4/5
Love this app but in-game box score feature was removed this year? Don't understand this. Baseball is a game of numbers.. give us our numbers!
Behind other sports apps 2/5
By Jake 1738375
Love watching/reading/listening about baseball but this app makes it harder than it needs to be. If the MLB wants to connect to younger fans (I’m 22) they should probably get their app fixed
Roster glitch 5/5
There is one glitch that I think should be fixed - sometimes when attempting to check a team’s roster, no players show up whatsoever. Is there any way to fix this?
Need downloads 2/5
The app is good but can be a lot better. One star lost because because nobody at mlb.com understands that Hawaii is in the SoCal market so I can’t watch my SF Giants live!! Second star lost because we aren’t able to download the games and watch them offline. And the third star was lost because nobody responded to my emails.
No me abre 1/5
Desde que le di la actualización en este mes de marzo no me a querido abrir la use todo el año pasado y me fue excelente pero la actualicé y no abre se queda pensando pero me llegan todas las notificaciones del App pero no abre esto me tiene molesto porque él cobro sigue llegando mes tras mes
You cant even watch the videos. Endless ads, terrible quality videos, and lots of glitches and bugs. Good if all you want is to check scores and stats. Terrible for highlights and videos.
Why is there no scrubber?
Why is there no jump to live?
Whenever I cast the game to my Vizio it always starts at the beginning....?
iOS 8 stuck in November 2017 1/5
By Roam Redway
Don't want to upgrade to super slow iOS 9 on my otherwise perfectly good iPad 2. At Bat worked fine through last game of 17 World Series. Calendar now stuck on that last game date. Tried deleting and re-downloading but no difference.
App stopped working 1/5
The app stopped working the other day after the update. Whenever I try and open it, it just stays on the loading screen with the spinning loading indicator indefinitely. I have tried killing the app and retrying, but to no avail. Now I have paid my $20 for the at bat subscription and can't even use it.
At Bat app worth $20 a year 4/5
By ME RBRT
I enjoy listening to the radio feeds for every team, home and away, that MLB At Bat provides. And the instant access to scores and in-game box scores is useful too.
One thing that needs improvement: the At Bat app does not send you an email that alerts you to an expired credit card. So your access to the app expires, and you have no idea why.
Update Video Content 2/5
There seems to be an issue with the updated content under video search. Mlb Network segments haven’t been updated since Feb. 19th. Catching up on missed segments is a big reason why I pay for the app. Please address the issue.
Over priced 1/5
I canceled my MLB package this year which also includes MLB At Bat because of the price and ridiculous amount commercials to watch the videos. Baseball has priced itself out of my life. Maybe others are waking up to just handing over more money each year to pay these over priced minor league skills who play in the Major Leagues now. Not one is worth what they are paid.
Apple Watch App is Garbage 1/5
Issues with the main app aside (it works at delivering content and ads galore) the watch app is simply pathetic. It is the only app I must consistently force quit. Trying to retrieve scores puts the app in perpetual loading limbo. Heck, I can’t load MLB news unless I search by individual team. C’mon MLB, get it together. This is embarrassing.
Charter Spectrum 1/5
Why isn’t Charter Spectrum on the list?
What Did You Do? 1/5
When trying to watch on my iPad there are 4 overlays that basically take up the whole screen. Even when I double tap to hide they keep coming back randomly. If I swipe to hide, they keep coming back randomly. It’s pretty impossible to watch a game on the iPad app.
Confused 🤔 1/5
I absolutely love this app. It’s hard to watch tv when you’re constantly working, but this app lets me stay up to date. However I paid $20 to watch the game, but it’s not allowing me to do so. Now I’m just confused as to what I even paid for.
App doesn’t load 1/5
This application has not loaded for at least a week now. It will load and load and load for days if I didn’t force close it. Such a shame considering I pay a monthly subscription to watch baseball that I can’t even watch.
No updates 4/5
This version is not sending in-game updates to my iPhone. Can’t figure out why not. I have selected the updates I want to receive in settings. Otherwise, the app is as good as in past years. Please fix.
Live play by play 1/5
I’ve noticed the live summary does not update like it used to. Just freezes. Also keeps putting up wrong inning and wrong info. Disappointing. Please fix.
MLB TV 5/5
I see a couple comments about watching live games. You need MLB TV for that. It’s 115 a year or 25 a month. It’s not included with in the app purchase of 20 bucks I believe that only gets you the audio. If you know anything about sports you would know that your not going to be able to watch every game anywhere for 20 bucks a year that’s just ridiculous.
