    Why we chose MLB:

    • Free app for scores and updates, but to watch live, you need to subscribe for $24.99 per month
    • Tons of live games available to watch in the app, however, some games are subject to blackout restrictions, so this app is best for people who want to watch out-of-market games.
    • You can also listen to audio of games, or use the Gameday feature, which describes the action via images of the field, lineups, and text descriptions of the game.
    • Lots of articles and other info about your favorite teams
    • Access to other MLB.com features like ticket purchasing, trivia games, and more

  • Great app but... Jun 16, 2019

    By Rainy.Windy
    The MLB At Bat app is great; beautiful picture quality on Apple TV and iOS. I really enjoy it. However, there is one glitch that is driving me crazy. I reported this glitch to MLB and got a cut-and-paste response, so now I’m going public. The “Hide Scores” toggle keeps clicking off. I watch from overseas and very rarely get to watch live. I have the “Hide Scores” toggle on so I don’t see the final score of a game I’m about to watch. But when the toggle clicks off, you don’t discover it’s off until you get a screen full of final scores! This ruins the entire experience for me. Why would you want to know the final score before watching the game? I would like to see a change where the app hides the scores for the team(s) you follow for 24/48 hours after game time, regardless of the “Hide Scores” toggle setting. At Bat is a 5-star app, but this glitch lets it down for me.

    4/21/21 What happened to the score of the game when you first launch the app? Using audio in Android auto your favorite team is not set to default load. Pretty distracting to go through the menus to pick your favorite team that you already have it set to in the app
  • Video function fixed; notifications still MIA May 4, 2019

    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.

    I love the app and the VR app as well but I think it's messed up that there are so many blackouts and especially for my giants. I cna barley get any of the games and it's upsetting even though I'm not paying for since I'm a tmobile customer. Imagine how the people that actually pay for the service feel. Change the blackout restrictions and give the fans what they want and pay for.
  • 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.

  • has what I want but very buggy Apr 19, 2021

    By Katz's Itunes Accounts
    I would give it five stars if there weren't so many technical issues. I have the latest iPhone that is updated. The first issue is the schedule at the top of the screen always shows dates in the past and isn't current. The only way to see the current schedule is to click on the calendar. If this can't be fixed I'd rather have it removed as a feature. The second problem is incredibly annoying and making me consider canceling my subscription. The issue is white the phone is connected to my car by CarPlay, It is not possible to listen to the radio even if the app is not open on my phone. It continually tries to play MLB audio. The only way to play my radio is to disconnect my phone from CarPlay. I don't even have the MLB app as a option in CarPlay so I don't see the icon in CarPlay. So something is going on with auto play and this app. This has never happened with any other app but always happens now. I've tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling it several times that does not correct the problem.

    This is for the version on my Sony Android TV. My phone app would get a 4, at least: Up until today, you could be watching a game and use the down arrow to see the line score and the box score. Today that's gone. I want it back. There's also the matter of having to log in again because the app got updated, but that only costs 0;.2 stars or so. I want my box score back!!!!

    This app has been total garbage for Sony Android TV. The app either refuses to connect to a game or displays a Network Error. Throughout the game, the app will just crash. After trying to re-open the app, it will never connect again. I have to either restart the TV or don't bother watching. I have been a subscriber for 3 years now and have not had issues in prior years. I have a 1Gb Internet connection with Google Fiber and my PC will connect via the website with no issue. I have to assume there are other subscribers with the same issue and a class action lawsuit is probably a good idea at this point.
  • Going downhill quick Apr 11, 2021

    By Bradh02
    This app used to be the gold standard of sports apps. Now, it is really buggy at best. There is a vast amount of information if you can get the app to function well enough to get to it. I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max that has been fully updated so whatever issues exist, they are by the app developer. I expect better from a multi billion dollar organization. UPDATE: Took away another star because the videos are so dysfunctional, it is ridiculous. All of the videos have to load because MLB wants them to auto play for whatever reason. Not only is this a terrible, clunky, buggy experience, but it’s just a bad idea because a lot of the videos have the other team’s highlights mixed in which I am not at all interested in. I used to come here to check the standings, but I have to dig for those because MLB wants me to play some game instead presumably so they can generate even more revenue. My app has been deleted and reinstalled and my iPhone 11 Pro Max is as updated as it can be. I’m done trying to solve the MLB app problems on my end. Time for them to be better. The easiest solution to this problem is to just use another app for the standings and do without the highlights. They’re not worth the frustration anyway.

    This is for the Phillips Smart Tv version. Worst app. Works great on my iPhone. Android version won’t even let me sign in half the time. Signs me out every time I close the app. And is just generally too buggy to use. It’s easier for me to set up my MacBook and stream it through that than actually try and use this app on the tv itself. Such a shame since it’s a great app for Apple devices.

    The updated app is quite pretty, and has all of the information and radio/tv feeds you could want. Note: It would be even better if you could watch games for the teams in the city that you live in. My biggest gripe has to do with the Google TV version which is repeatedly forgets my log in information and forces me to log back in. This doesn't happen with any other app on my Google TV device, just the MLB.tv app. This has gotten to be extremely frustrating.
  • Hilarious… May 8, 2021

    By another someone
    So tonight I got a notification from the MLB app to take a survey. I thought, great I have some things to say. So I tapped on the notification, and it opened the app to my team’s home screen and … nothing. No survey. I laughed because I should have expected that. Most of the notifications I tap on these days just take me to my team’s Home Screen and fail to load the story or video that the notification alerted me to. And before you say to delete and reinstall the app, I did that last week. I deleted the app, updated my software to 14.5, installed the app, restarted my phone again and then opened it. It still fails to load articles or videos from notifications. At least I ca get recap and condensed game videos to load now, but it’s still a win/lose. Setting notifications in the settings is still a pain. Sometimes the change saves, sometimes it doesn’t. And no matter how many times I’ve tried I’ve never received notifications when the condensed game is available. MLB used to be at the cutting edge of iPhone development, but those days are long passed… Much like like the pace of the game. Slowerand slower each year… I love baseball so much, but even I’m getting bored…
  • 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.

UPDATE 4/6/21.i see the app was updated yesterday on my Google player device, but I still get the same error message. FAILED TO LOGIN. not sure what's going on hopefully it gets fixed soon. 4/12/21 still unable to login, it's been over a week now not being able to login to my account.
  • 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...

  • Glitchy May 6, 2021

    By heymlbusuk
    If I had a dollar for every pixel these streams have I’ve have 75 cents. Slow. The only thing that comes in clear without lag are the commercials. Will not start at the point in the game you want to start. Will completely drop the stream toward the end of the game leading you to a screen with all the scores so only watch live if you don’t want the stream to stop and ruin the ending for you. The reason it isn’t one star is only because it’s slightly better than nothing. I’m currently watching a game where the “Dodgers vs Cubs” cyron at the bottom of the screen has been on since the beginning of the game because it will pop up whenever the stream cuts out and there hasn’t been 5 seconds of this stream not glitching out for it to go away. This is the only streaming service I have an issue with. I think the pirated streams have better quality. May cancel subscription and give that a try because this is annoying. Update: I have confirmed that the pirated stream for this game is a much better quality stream than the one I am paying 30 bucks a month for. Canceled subscription.

  • 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.
  • 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!!!!!
  • Bad Update!!- Now fixed and good. Apr 17, 2019

    By GnPostal
    I have paid for this app for a long time and really like it but this year the app is crap. Now there are stupid advertisements. Every time I want to see a video I have to see an advertisement before I can watch a highlight. I do not pay to see adds!!!!!!!!! I guess I will make Yahoo sports my go to app from now on and will not pay for this anymore!!! After getting an email concerning my rate, with the suggestion to delete the app and reinstall it, everything is good again- no adds when watching videos. Thank you for fixing the problem.
  • Live, in-game updates Aug 12, 2018

    By Jellerbee
    The live, gameday updates for each game is spectacular. Each game is unique and makes you feel like you're spectating the game from behind the batter right next to the umpire. The backdrop of each game accurately replicates the look of each home stadium, complete with flags, green spaces, logos, walls, etc. The interface is similar to modern baseball videogames in that it shows you the batter's "hot" and "cold" zones, boatloads of stats, and a real-time pitch graphic that shows you where the pitch lands inside/outside the strike zone. It really is the next best thing to watching the TV broadcast.
  • MLB at Bat Mar 6, 2020

    By Runner Ray I
    MLB contacted me after I sent the below review. I apologize to MLB. Not be a tech savvy person, I mis understood how to get to the app. A young man Nelson was very kind and patient with me. The issue has been resolved. I am a big Cardinals fan, since 1954. I have paid for the app since it came out. It was used continuously. I was able to listen to broadcast of games. I thought I had it on auto pay, maybe not. The app has disappeared and I can not re-download it. I have sent 3 emails to the support people. I have not received a response. Highly recommend you forget about the MLB app.
  • Love MLB App & Love My Dodgers! Aug 21, 2019

    By Dodgers-Grandma
    I guess I’m the odd one here. I hardly ever have trouble with this app. I’m a 70 yr old Dodgers loving grandma. The tv ads are only during the innings or a long timeout, changing pitchers etc and I’ve only had 2 blackouts so far. I was able to see those on cable. My son has been a Dodgers fan since he was little. He shares the App with me and I love it. I curl up in bed and turn the game on. It’s my nightly ritual. I’m so thankful to be able to enjoy the Dodgers and to watch them having such a great year. I give the App and the Dodgers a full five stars!
  • Fixed, very happy now Mar 30, 2019

    By eho99
    Update: its fixed now, very happy Very disappointing that the app used to be better. It really stinks that there’s no way to get pip on the latest 2018 iPad Pro. Worked fine on my older iPad Pro. Also, what happened to the button to jump to live broadcast? Seems like I have to skip 30 seconds ahead with no slider bar even. How can newer versions be worse??? Hope somebody reads this and fixes these things. I used to always use pip when watching games. Not as useful to me anymore.
  • Great app but... Jun 16, 2019

    By Rainy.Windy
    The MLB At Bat app is great; beautiful picture quality on Apple TV and iOS. I really enjoy it. However, there is one glitch that is driving me crazy. I reported this glitch to MLB and got a cut-and-paste response, so now I’m going public. The “Hide Scores” toggle keeps clicking off. I watch from overseas and very rarely get to watch live. I have the “Hide Scores” toggle on so I don’t see the final score of a game I’m about to watch. But when the toggle clicks off, you don’t discover it’s off until you get a screen full of final scores! This ruins the entire experience for me. Why would you want to know the final score before watching the game? I would like to see a change where the app hides the scores for the team(s) you follow for 24/48 hours after game time, regardless of the “Hide Scores” toggle setting. At Bat is a 5-star app, but this glitch lets it down for me.

    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.

    On Android TV app, please remove inning indicators on the time-bar when spoilers are off, otherwise pressing any button to skip/pause/play is a spoiler!
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Pretty great on the whole Mar 27, 2019

    By jmy9595
    I have a couple gripes and suggestions about the app. I saw that there were some updates to the video highlights and I hope it addressed my first gripe but it does not. I am an able to share the video highlights with in the game either during or after it via Facebook messenger. It says something like content is not found or does not load. This would be my main way to share highlights with my sister and I wish it would work. Also I hope that it is now possible to move the closed captioning somewhere else on the screen so that it does not interfere with onscreen graphics. This was a problem last year and before I assume. I don’t know if this has been rectified or not yet.
  • Delayed Notification Option Please Apr 27, 2018

    By Greggy Jo
    I live within my teams market so unfortunately I can’t use the app and subscribe how I would like due to those annoying blackouts. However, I still use to listen to the radio broadcast and general stat usage during game. Always been an app that stays ahead of the curve on app updates and taking advantage of new features right away. Biggest complaint is that when I’m watching the game using virtually every medium, I get a scoring change notification 10 or 15 seconds before I see it. I don’t want to have to manually turn on and off notifications each time I watch the game. I would love an option to delay notifications by a minute or so to avoid spoiling the plays.
  • 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.

    I love the app and the VR app as well but I think it's messed up that there are so many blackouts and especially for my giants. I cna barley get any of the games and it's upsetting even though I'm not paying for since I'm a tmobile customer. Imagine how the people that actually pay for the service feel. Change the blackout restrictions and give the fans what they want and pay for.
  • 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.
  • has what I want but very buggy Apr 19, 2021

    By Katz's Itunes Accounts
    I would give it five stars if there weren't so many technical issues. I have the latest iPhone that is updated. The first issue is the schedule at the top of the screen always shows dates in the past and isn't current. The only way to see the current schedule is to click on the calendar. If this can't be fixed I'd rather have it removed as a feature. The second problem is incredibly annoying and making me consider canceling my subscription. The issue is white the phone is connected to my car by CarPlay, It is not possible to listen to the radio even if the app is not open on my phone. It continually tries to play MLB audio. The only way to play my radio is to disconnect my phone from CarPlay. I don't even have the MLB app as a option in CarPlay so I don't see the icon in CarPlay. So something is going on with auto play and this app. This has never happened with any other app but always happens now. I've tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling it several times that does not correct the problem.

    This is for the version on my Sony Android TV. My phone app would get a 4, at least: Up until today, you could be watching a game and use the down arrow to see the line score and the box score. Today that's gone. I want it back. There's also the matter of having to log in again because the app got updated, but that only costs 0;.2 stars or so. I want my box score back!!!!
  • Can’t hold the live feed May 4, 2021

    By tired of spotty livestreaming
    I really want to love this app but it’s too frustrating. Watching live games on chromecast using the app has become nearly impossible. Everything starts out fine but after a couple of innings the buffering begins. Only buffers for a few seconds but it happens almost continually. I have a new iPhone 12 Pro, updated. It’s not a bandwidth problem because I’m pulling in close to 100mbs. Live stream on most other apps works great. After a couple innings of all the short buffering breaks, the stream is no longer live. Watching on the website with my laptop works great, but I can’t cast direct to the tv from the website. Update: this problem happens when I cast to chromecast. Works okay on the phone, but whenever I cast, it starts to pause and lag. I can cast from my laptop and it works fine, but it won’t work well to cast from this app. Lots of other apps I have cast livestream just fine. But this app doesn’t work well with chromecast.
  • 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.
  • Customer Service issues May 23, 2018

    By ChefSmithers
    I am updating my review, I left the original review below for reference. Customer service reached out to me after I left a 1 Star review to address my concerns saying “they could not replicate” my app crashing scenario. So far they have come back with two fixes that have not worked but to their credit they are communicating & in a timely manner. Will update again with the conclusion. I pay for an annual subscription ... 4 updates ago the schedule started crashing the app. I have written & written & written & written no no avail. Customer service will not respond to my inquiries ... The app is great to watch baseball on the go or online but if you ever have a problem don’t expect to get help or a response, user beware. I can’t support an app that doesn’t support customers that pay significant money to use their service.
  • Solid MLB News App Jun 19, 2018

    By Must needs coffee
    Almost perfect. Easy to navigate and get what you want. Just want to catch the scores of last few game(s)? They’re right there. Got more time to dig into the recaps? Also there. Looking for the latest scoop, the ins and outs throughout the league? Just finger taps away. Articles, videos, recaps, box scores, stats, it’s all there in one clean, easily navigable and customizable app. My only gripes are: - it takes a while to load (forgivable given the amount of content, often video, being retrieved). - 12-28 second adds front nearly every single video, even those 8 second single play highlight clips that are only a fraction of the length of the adds that precede them! I understand the obnoxious reality of intrusive advertising is the way internet content survives, but really!? Does it have to be so imbalanced? This is absurd! Automatic full-star reduction (at minimum) for this. - the schedule/calendar view has been broken for quite some time now, causing the app to instantly crash and close whenever I click that button to see a whole month at a time. No excuses there. Been weeks, maybe even months now. That’s gotta be fixed. Full-star reduction here too.
  • Random Team Schedules crash Jun 2, 2018

    By MistaBernie
    I haven’t had as many problems as other people using the app, but the consistent problem is I can’t view my teams schedule (I get that there are other resources available, but if I have the app open, I should be able to tap the schedule button and have it work). I reported the issue, and got a respond kindly asking me to reinstall the software. Except when I reported the issue I talked the various troubleshooting steps I’d already performed (restart, reinstall, etc). The one thing I didn’t try was loading another teams schedule - and a couple of teams actually load. I’ve seen other people have good experiences when reporting issues with the app so I had hoped I would too and that simply wasn’t the case.
  • Apr 14, 2021

    By Thomas Wysocki
    The updated app is quite pretty, and has all of the information and radio/tv feeds you could want. Note: It would be even better if you could watch games for the teams in the city that you live in. My biggest gripe has to do with the Google TV version which is repeatedly forgets my log in information and forces me to log back in. This doesn't happen with any other app on my Google TV device, just the MLB.tv app. This has gotten to be extremely frustrating.
  • Hilarious… May 8, 2021

    By another someone
    So tonight I got a notification from the MLB app to take a survey. I thought, great I have some things to say. So I tapped on the notification, and it opened the app to my team’s home screen and … nothing. No survey. I laughed because I should have expected that. Most of the notifications I tap on these days just take me to my team’s Home Screen and fail to load the story or video that the notification alerted me to. And before you say to delete and reinstall the app, I did that last week. I deleted the app, updated my software to 14.5, installed the app, restarted my phone again and then opened it. It still fails to load articles or videos from notifications. At least I ca get recap and condensed game videos to load now, but it’s still a win/lose. Setting notifications in the settings is still a pain. Sometimes the change saves, sometimes it doesn’t. And no matter how many times I’ve tried I’ve never received notifications when the condensed game is available. MLB used to be at the cutting edge of iPhone development, but those days are long passed… Much like like the pace of the game. Slowerand slower each year… I love baseball so much, but even I’m getting bored…
  • 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.
  • Glitchy May 6, 2021

    By heymlbusuk
    If I had a dollar for every pixel these streams have I’ve have 75 cents. Slow. The only thing that comes in clear without lag are the commercials. Will not start at the point in the game you want to start. Will completely drop the stream toward the end of the game leading you to a screen with all the scores so only watch live if you don’t want the stream to stop and ruin the ending for you. The reason it isn’t one star is only because it’s slightly better than nothing. I’m currently watching a game where the “Dodgers vs Cubs” cyron at the bottom of the screen has been on since the beginning of the game because it will pop up whenever the stream cuts out and there hasn’t been 5 seconds of this stream not glitching out for it to go away. This is the only streaming service I have an issue with. I think the pirated streams have better quality. May cancel subscription and give that a try because this is annoying. Update: I have confirmed that the pirated stream for this game is a much better quality stream than the one I am paying 30 bucks a month for. Canceled subscription.

    MLB TV for Android app has a "Network Error, please try again later" bug. Continuously have to restart my Sony Bravia TV--VERY frustrating. Video quality on 150 Mbps Ethernet is great, but this "Network error" is AWFUL (contact Form sent to Devs on 5 Apr 21). ADD'L UPDATE 5 APR--MLB TV for Android Developers, the Contact Form is very limited how much detail I can give. NO TROUBLE accessing archived games on my computer Chrome browser; but CONSTANTLY getting "Network Error, please try again later" when using the MLB Android TV app for archived games, even though my TV has Cat7 wired Ethernet with 150 Mbps. There must be an issue with the app, or the connectivity or interoperability between the app and TV. Thx!
  • 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!
  • Love baseball. Hate this app Jun 17, 2019

    By CapnAHav
    It’s nice that I can watch my Mets while in CA. However this app breaks my CarPlay every time I use it. It makes any and all audio apps nothing but a black screen until I reset it the entire phone. Plus it will not actually play the game unless i open the phone while driving and press play on the app itself. Carplay shortcut just won’t work. How about just some minor quality of life issues? Why do i have to chose the english radio feed every time. I promise i never want to listen to the Spanish feed and if i do I don’t mind going into settings to changing that. How about letting me get right to viewing the game I’m listening to or watching a summary of without having to load a list and scroll through every game happening throughout the whole day?!? This is why we need competition. So lazy apps like this are held accountable. Because where the hell else am I going to go?
  • This App Could Be So Much Better May 2, 2021

    By sjsharksfan39
    Why hasn’t MLB updated the Apple TV app in like 3 years. The user interface could be so much better. One example is when you are watching the game and you want to flip to a different game, there is no option in the player itself to change broadcasts. If you want a different feed you have to go all the way to the main home page to pick the feed you want. That should be in the player itself. I also found out last week there is no support for Homepods. Basically my HomePod is useless in this app, which is inexcusable. Come on MLB, fix your app and make it better. It’s a new year and it’s the same it’s always been. UPDATE: Please fix CarPlay. I shouldn’t have to open my phone to use the app via the Car. I can’t help but think this app is getting worse and yes I just sent a lengthy email to MLB support about this.
  • Used to love this app May 2, 2019

    By NFLFFOOTBALL21
    I’ve had this app on my phone pretty close to the entire time it’s been available. Every season I purchase the radio subscription at $2.99/mo. Each previous year, I was able to enjoy the app ad-free because of my purchasing the radio subscription. This season is different...I have ads everywhere. I can’t watch highlight videos w/o having to wait on an ad to finish. On top of that, I’ve had issues with the app freezing up, locking up and I end up having to clear the app and start all over. Between the videos not opening properly, the freezing/locking up and the amount of ads that for some reason I now have to deal with, I’ve lost my interest. I’ll most likely utilize alternative options for radio and highlights moving forward. Try harder MLB at Bat...you used to be awesome.
  • Many bugs, poor support Mar 8, 2019

    By Royas16
    App worked great for a long time but suddenly any time I click on headline link to view a news story it just goes to a blank white screen and the story will not display. I uninstalled then reinstalled and then my audio subscription stopped working. It said that I did not have a subscription even though I have already paid this year. So I contacted customer support via email but it takes them two days or more to respond. When they do respond, they ask a basic question, so I answer and wait two more days. So nothing resolved yet. My audio subscription works on computer at website but not in app. Incredibly frustrating and the app is basically worthless if I cannot read stories or use audio subscription.

    This app has been total garbage for Sony Android TV. The app either refuses to connect to a game or displays a Network Error. Throughout the game, the app will just crash. After trying to re-open the app, it will never connect again. I have to either restart the TV or don't bother watching. I have been a subscriber for 3 years now and have not had issues in prior years. I have a 1Gb Internet connection with Google Fiber and my PC will connect via the website with no issue. I have to assume there are other subscribers with the same issue and a class action lawsuit is probably a good idea at this point.
  • Going downhill quick Apr 11, 2021

    By Bradh02
    This app used to be the gold standard of sports apps. Now, it is really buggy at best. There is a vast amount of information if you can get the app to function well enough to get to it. I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max that has been fully updated so whatever issues exist, they are by the app developer. I expect better from a multi billion dollar organization. UPDATE: Took away another star because the videos are so dysfunctional, it is ridiculous. All of the videos have to load because MLB wants them to auto play for whatever reason. Not only is this a terrible, clunky, buggy experience, but it’s just a bad idea because a lot of the videos have the other team’s highlights mixed in which I am not at all interested in. I used to come here to check the standings, but I have to dig for those because MLB wants me to play some game instead presumably so they can generate even more revenue. My app has been deleted and reinstalled and my iPhone 11 Pro Max is as updated as it can be. I’m done trying to solve the MLB app problems on my end. Time for them to be better. The easiest solution to this problem is to just use another app for the standings and do without the highlights. They’re not worth the frustration anyway.

    This is for the Phillips Smart Tv version. Worst app. Works great on my iPhone. Android version won’t even let me sign in half the time.

  • 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...

  • MLB app is full of glitches & they won’t take responsibility Mar 8, 2021

    By Charbz2121
    Update: Take a look at the recent reviews. Everyone is experiencing issues with the app. There hasn’t been an update in a week, but MLB says to delete and reinstall. That is MLB support in a nutshell. Everyone’s devices are the problem... not their terrible app. Hey MLB support how about you own your issues, admit the app is broken, and say you are working to fix it. The MLB app used to be the gold standard of sports apps. That has changed dramatically in recent years. They simply cannot get their app to function reliably. This is true for the 2021 season and their latest update. The videos under the scores tab do not work. When you are scrolling through videos it will automatically scroll to the top of the video list the second you take your finger off the screen. I attempted to contact mlb support about this issue and they responded with a completely unrelated answer. MLB continues to drop the ball. They simply cannot get their app to function properly. Avoid this app until the MLB demonstrates consistent reliability in app functionality.
  • 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!

    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
