    Updated review: OKthis app is the best app I have ever used. It's so fun to have literally every detail of every team right at my disposal. They have details I didn't even know I wanted! It is SO THOROUGH infact that I have learned a TON about the game and I am so into it now!!! MLBTV is a life saver, too, because they don't play my Cardinals here in California but I NEVER miss a game cuz of the app!!! Love it!!!

  • Video function fixed; notifications still MIA May 4, 2019

    By Scooter_Pi
    UPDATE: I owe MLB half an apology. I hadn’t updated my iOS; I did, and video highlights are fixed. So that one was my fault. However, my next notification about a condensed game will be my first this season. (And I did everything: logged out, uninstalled, restarted iPad, reinstalled app, logged in and redid settings again. I’m now done trying to make this app work the way it’s supposed to.) So we’re up from 2 stars to 3. It’s nice; it just doesn’t do what it should. When this app works, it’s fantastic. But all year I keep seeing “No highlights currently available.” Uninstalling and reinstalling fixes that problem, but I’m not about to reinstall an app (and log in, and set my preferences) every day. The treatment of condensed games was a mess for several weeks. Now they’re finally showing up in the right place, but I STILL haven’t gotten a single notification all season that a condensed game was ready to watch. The videos, especially condensed games, are my favorite part of the app. So I’m sure you can understand why I’m miffed. Simply put, a well-conceived app is performing very poorly.

    This app works great. It's filled with lots of useful information and streams video very nicely. If this app had a Dark Mode I'd give it a full 5 stars. With its mostly white background it's brighter than I'd prefer, especially in low light settings. Even the latest ad for the app shows a dark mode, but not on my Galaxy S9. Too bright!!!!

    Yes. Removed and reinstalled the app. All devices are updated. No change. Only have one problem w the app. When I'm enjoying ANY game, live or replay, on Chromecast, after 2 hours or so, it lags VERY often. Every 3 to 4 minutes, it buffers and pauses the game. Quite annoying. My only recourse is to watch without casting. Dunno if that's my phone, Chromecast or this app. This app is, however, the ONLY one that lags that way. Otherwise, I use the app in appreciation of our great pastime.

  • VR BASEBALL Jul 29, 2020

    By Djslider
    Some things I’m upset about watching in VR is when watching the field view it would be great to watch where the ball is flying to and watch the players cards move around the bases. And maybe even minor cards for the infield and outfield defense to watch how they move around the field interactively. The other thing I’m upset about is pictures that come across the plate take about 15 seconds to register on the screen. And when a batter changes and even when a runner goes to base it takes about 30 seconds for their player card to move either to a base or having been struck out for it to change to another player. So even though the technology is here the actual transition from it being logged in, however it is being done, to the graphics in VR takes way too long it’s not real time. So when I’m listening to the radio broadcast when it’s a blackout game or even watching on the screen with a televised game that’s happening at least 30 seconds before The graphic shows the play or runners changing bases or batters changing by at least 30 seconds.

  • The app is good but Jul 22, 2019

    By Imported to Detroit
    For this app it used to really good but all it is the idea of paying $125 for ads. When I first started to purchase this app years ago there were few ads but now there are way to many. The ads are also very repetitive most of the time for one restaurant the whole game or one politician at every ad brake. I run an blocker also on all my devices which prevents me from seeing a ton of ads with other apps or services but it seems to not work with app. Bring back the out of date highlights during ad brakes. Another thing is they are through sponsorships making so that the app is useless because there is the free game of the day and a free game of the week on other services along with days were every game is free. In conclusion, not only do you have to put up with the broadcasters ads and the ads around the ballpark, but now there are ads in game brakes also which are becoming to much. I got the app because I was sick of the ads on my TV because at the time there were to few but now there are way to many, the games are uninteresting, and baseball is becoming the sport of the old and not the young because it has lost its appeal.

    First off I can't rewind for some reason. Second thing is there are commercials you can't fast forward once they start. It freezes pretty often and when I hit resume from last point watched (might be called something else but suppose to do that) it never does. It's either earlier in the game or later in the game. It ruined the Cubs vs Sox game for me because it skipped me 3 innings to the end. When it works right It's enjoyable but should be much better.

  • What’s with all the ads??? Jun 10, 2019

    By Jondotter
    UPDATE: I’m taking another star away because it’s worse than greed. It’s apathy evidently. They acknowledged this is actually an issue but aren’t able to resolve and I guess I’m just left with a poor user experience?? Not even a “we’re aware and working toward resolving” or giving any indication they intend to address an issue they admit I am having. Here’s the rundown - I contacted support through the app and was advised as an MLB TV subscriber I shouldn’t be seeing ads all over the place like I am. I was advised to logout and back into the app. No change. I was next advised to uninstall/reinstall the app. No change. It seems that’s where they plan on leaving it. Last email said if my issue persists to contact Apple support... Original Review: MLB must be struggling because this out of market fan can’t watch a single highlight without a preroll ad anymore. Having paid over $90 to follow my team and still get these and now in app banner ads near the bottom menus??? Really frustrating and annoying. At least watching games is flawless but outside of that the user experience just reminds that you’re nothing but a set of eyes to blast ads at, even as a paying subscriber...

    I got this app so I could watch my favorite team even though I don't live in the market. I was able to watch maybe 80% of regular season games, minus national TV games on Fox or ESPN which was annoying considering the price and what I got it for but not a deal breaker. Then the playoffs got here and I am able to watch 0% of playoff games through this app. They are all blacked out. No wonder this sport is being passed by by the NBA and NFL.

  • Much of the app doesn't work if you don't have iOS 12 Apr 21, 2019

    By Anon7809
    It's nearly a month into the 2019 season and the MLB At Bat standings and stats still have not been updated. Instead of current 2019 standings, the app still shows 2018 standings. Same is true for stats. And when I called up MLB support, I was told that if you don't update to iOS 12 you will not be able to get current standings or stats, even with the paid app. I chose not to update to iOS 12 for a good reason - many of my favorite apps will not work at all with iOS 11 or 12. It's a Catch 22 situation. I don't blame the developers of these other apps for not wanting to change their well-designed and perfectly functional apps simply because Apple updates the iOS. MLB needs to fix the app so that standings and stats will continue to work even without iOS 12. Ironically, the MLB At Bat features that continue to work without iOS 12, such as Gameday, are much more sophisticated features than standings and stats are. I can get current standings, stats, and scores on the free Yahoo Sports app and CBS Sports app, so why bother with the MLB app at all? MLB: FIX THIS APP!

  1. Know everything there is to know about every single player from all 30 MLB clubs
  2. Use the Scoreboard to quickly check the standings & Live Look-In to get video coverage of key plays
  3. Gameday provides a complete baseball experience! Enjoy watching review video clips, live hit tracker & comprehensive Statcast data

  • Crashes Jun 15, 2019

    By StuJay270
    Edit. The new update has fixed the crashing issue for me on my Apple TV and because of this I have updated my rating to 5 stars. It’s back to being the great app it was before. This has to be the most interactive app on my Apple TV. The app crashes, I grab the remote and press a button a few times. The app crashes again and I grab the remote and press a button a few times. Anywhere from 10 to 45 minutes the app will crash, so make sure you keep your remote handy because you will be grabbing it often. But other than the crashing, the app is great. The picture quality is very good on 4K HDR TV. The app is very easy to use and it works well with Apple TV. It also works well on my iPad where it hasn’t crashed.

    MLB does a great job with the app and rarely have any issues with buffering or lag issues. As for the COVID-19 shortened season and the cost of a subscription, I'd complain loudly except T-Mobile provided a complimentary subscription.

  • Making an outstanding app even more outstanding! Jun 28, 2018

    By Gene 10000007
    This is really my favorite app, bar none. I enjoy watching the game progress, when I’m just kicking back or if I’m also watching the game on TV. Just love it, but what I would like to see on the game day feature, is that when the batter hits a foul ball after two strikes, instead of coloring the ball red, color it yellow, so we instantly know he didn’t strike out. When we see the fourth green ball we instantly know it’s a base on balls; I would like to see the third red ball to instantly mean he struck out. I feel that this would make an outstanding improvement to an already outstanding app. Thank you for all you do.

  • Baseball is my sport and really enjoy this App. Sep 26, 2017

    By Parakeet Mama
    I get all the latest news right here, as it happens, and better than reading the newspapers. Baseball was a game I played, growing up in a neighborhood of boys and having a younger brother who enjoyed it also. I am now 74 years of age and still like this game. Being a girl, I never played it in school, only softball, which I did not enjoy. The Cubs became my team when Sammy Sosa and Mark Grace and all those great players were on the team. Even after they had all left the Cubs remained my team. Along with several others. Go Cubs!!!! Let's make it two World Series winning years in a row!!!!!

  • Great App! Apr 13, 2020

    By Bucky_Badger94
    Overall, love this app! Huge Brewers fan, and this app makes it really easy to stay up to date on what’s going on! There is one thing that would really make this app better, at least from my perspective... I am really critical about the way my iPhone is displayed, especially the wallpaper that I have. I usually use one of my favorite teams/players, and I often get those from my team apps, such as my Bucks and Packers apps. My app has a Brewers cover, but one of my relatives gets wallpapers instead of the app covers. It may be because that person has a Samsung phone, but I’m not sure... I think that, however it may work, there should be both available for both types of phones. But like I said before, great app. That one thing would certainly bring my rating up to 5 stars.

  • Great app Mar 7, 2018

    By smiller44
    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.

  • At Bat Review Mar 29, 2018

    By Lakebeck
    I enjoy the app very much, but I have a Very Hard time having to listen on a phone. I noticed that some Cable Co’s include the At Bat App w/the paid Subscription to MLB Network. Xfinity does not do that. So I have to pay two places to get games. It’s very sad to me to pay out $180 a season to see what games they want me to watch. It’s 3pm & they haven’t showed a game all day. During Spring Training they didn’t have a problem picking what game would be played. At least they played one. But thanks to At Bat, I was able to hear the “Cubs” just got the “W” on Opening Day. I’m in s fixed income, so I can’t afford to pay for the games to physically come over my phone. I could play whatever game I want to watch if it was on my phone. I could plug into the tv & watch that Way.

  • Great but needs one more thing Apr 15, 2018

    By Uscklydbfjcdtsf
    I love this app. It’s my go-to for when I wanna check a score or stats on a particular player. I like checking the league leaders in ERA, batting average, RBI, etc. but one thing that should be added is advanced stats, such as hard hit percentage, fly ball rate, strike-out percentage, WAR, and other stats that are being looked at more these days. I love seeing the home run leaders and stuff but I also want to know things like who has the most total bases or highest contact rates. I know some of this info is available under the stats of each player profile, but it would be great if they were listed in order like they are with the stat leaders under the stats page. Team totals stats for these metrics would be great too! Other than this the app is great

    Ok app. Notifications can be late or just plainly never come at all. The biggest thing I hate though is the unskippable ads before every video are sometimes the same length as the video you're waiting to watch. It's very annoying and just causes me to want to use Bleacher Report instead. Everyone else allows for the ability to skips ads 5 seconds in so get with it or fall behind.

  • Bugs have become expected Sep 21, 2019

    By GeraldDP
    This service has been out for a decade. It seems like every year there is a different bug to deal with. They fix one and another comes up. When casting to your tv, hitting the forward/back 30 secs button on your phone starts the video from the beginning of the game; 100% of the time. The buttons just don’t work at all. If you’re already watching the game on your phone and click the cast button, the attempt to cast errors out about 50% of the time. This doesn’t happen if you cast, then click the play button. When casting, close games become unwatchable in late innings. It must be due to server traffic (lots of people start watching close games in the 8th or 9th). Clearly they’re server throttling. Very annoying. I did update my rating from 2 stars to 3 because this year the bugs are less annoying than last year.

  • Too many UNWANTED notifications!! May 7, 2019

    By I'MGONNAWRECKIT!!
    I used to have far more notifications settings turned on in seasons past, but it got really out of hand this season, including notifications that straight up spoiled the end of the games I was watching (apparently the broadcasts I’ve been watching are a bit behind). I started to get super aggravated at the spoilers and over-the-top number of news notifications, so I just trimmed it down to game start for the teams I care about. However, I’m finding that I STILL get multiple news notifications per day, and it’s not even for teams I have on my list! I even went to verify that my settings were correct (and they were). I’m super close to deleting this app, especially from my watch since the persistent tapping for stuff I don’t care about is SO ANNOYING. Please respect user settings on notifications!!! Some of us are busy at work and unwanted taps are extra irritating and distracting!

  • STILL Garbage! Jul 9, 2020

    By TheMacDaddy
    Update: ads and ads and more ads. This is worse than watching live TV. The app is confusing to navigate, I can't find in app purchases and the service is useless. The app and the service reminded me of why I stopped watching baseball...it's all about money, politics, and juicing the fans. They don't care about the fans or our experience. I Subscribed to At Bat. Realized you get almost nothing for your money. Subscribed to MLB Premium. Couldn't watch the live Yankee game tonight because it was blacked out even though I'm in-market. I could watch games from other markets but not my own market(???????). Still Can't watch the Yankees game from the archive. Still blacked out. But I can watch a live game from the west coast. Makes no sense. This app is garbage and the service is garbage. You're paying for MLB's licensing politics where the fans don't matter and get screwed coming and going. I now remember why I stopped watching baseball. Dirty business that gives the fans the short end of the stick every time. This app is just another example and the service is yet another one. Pass
