In order to get free MLB TV you will have to wait. Other than that, there was an update to the MLB app a little over a week ago.I had MLB thru my T-Mobile account last season. Just fired up the app for the first time since October and it says I don‘t have an active subscription. Do I need to wait till 3/24 to re-up? I guess no Spring Training for me...
hell yeah, glad it stuck around for so long. Seconding the comment that a recent model iPad from 2017 or 2018 would be a great buy. Apple’s site often has refurbished models at a good price if you don’t want to deal with eBay. You can also often find the current generation iPad on sale for $250 pretty often at Best Buy, Amazon and the like.I'm back in the market for a new tablet to watch Sox games on for the upcoming season. I currently have a Nexus 9 that @donutogre was so kind to part with back in 2006, but it's on its last legs and it's time for an upgrade. I don't do anything on the tablet besides watch sports (on a nightly basis during baseball season). I don't need all the bells and whistles and don't necessarily mind used or refurbished. I'm open to any OS as well. I just want something that will last me (hopefully) 3-4 years like the last one. Any suggestions?
Ended up buying a current gen 10.2” iPad from Staples for $249 on Thursday. Amazon had the same pricing, but was out of stock when I went to checkout.hell yeah, glad it stuck around for so long.

Same here. However, I was watching some of the late February games. It quite suddenly cut off on the 29th. My understanding was the T-Mobile sub was one year and it would run through this year's renewal. So on Saturday I signed up for a free 7 days. Monday I called MLB and they said no, the T-Mobile is only for the 2019 season. I told them it made no sense. MLB.TV Premium is supposed to be a one year sub. This promo was for MLB.TV Premium. All I got was a "sorry..."I had MLB thru my T-Mobile account last season. Just fired up the app for the first time since October and it says I don‘t have an active subscription.

Ok - this is awesome and I am stealing it.I’ve known for some time now that I needed to reset my sports entertainment budget, as other fans have done.
Fans have choices to make in this economic system. It’s a system that has a few imbalances as all economic systems do, but it is a system overall that has led to spending a lot of money while supporting the Red Sox. It is not the system’s fault that I ended up in this position. I was faced with a difficult choice. I feel that this move gives me more flexibility in my sports budget. You can talk about dollars. You can talk about metrics and value. But in the end, even though I am consistently among the highest-spending people of the baseball fans I know, with this year being no exception, I have to make hard judgments about spending for the future as well as the present.
I felt that I could not sit on my hands and just spend the 20 bucks without getting enough value in return to help me on my path forward as a fan. I carefully considered the alternatives over the last year, and made a decision when this opportunity presented itself to save the money for the years ahead.
I did the same and got a ton back. I can always reup if warranted.I cancelled my subscription today and will get my $93.99 back. A shortened season is not my cup of tea. Plus, the Yankees will be on various networks often enough to satisfy my diminished interest.
Glad you cancelled. I was worried it was just me being cranky.I did the same and got a ton back. I can always reup if warranted.
The rep asked me why I'd like to cancel, and I said: "The contract was I gave you cash to watch live baseball. There is no live base ball. So I want my cash back."
I haven't seen any yet, but they did confirm back in March that they'd be doing it once the season started up again, it's usually in the tmobile tuesdays rewards the week before the season is scheduled to startIf anyone sees details of the free T--Mobile thing for this year, please post here.
Was coming here to post the same thought. They're already going to have to likely prorate the subscription price somehow. Make it $10 for the whole season and every baseball fan on the planet probably buys it.If they were smart they would put mlb.tv out for nearly free this year to hook more people for next year.
Even $20 or $30 is reasonable if you're getting all of the games. Anyone know if TMobile will give away MLBTV for free again like they have in year's past?Was coming here to post the same thought.

I don't think that schedule means anything. They are only doing intrasquad until 3 days before spring training ends where they do a three game series against the team they will be starting the season against.Today's games are postponed also...ugh
Apparently so to my dismay and gullibility....ugh.I don't think that schedule means anything. They are only doing intrasquad until 3 days before spring training ends where they do a three game series against the team they will be starting the season against.
Blackouts still apply also, for some reason.MLB.TV has set its price at $59.99 for its main package, featuring every team’s out-of-market games. Before everything was shut down in March, the streaming service was listed at $121.99 for the 162-game season (there was a monthly option for $24.99/month).
So, do the per-game math, and the new MLB.TV price is actually a worse value. Keep in mind that this is during a pandemic, and for a bizarre season that will be hard for many people to take as seriously, so it’s really not a great look.
Yeah that’s monumentally dumb. I‘ve been a subscriber for about 15 years and assumed I would pay no matter what. This seems awfully steep for what the product is going to be and the very likely possibility that the season collapses soon after they start.Every time MLB has a chance to put a good foot forward they take two steps back...

I'm on auto-pay and got the same e-mail.I got an email stating that my subscription would be $45.18. I can get a refund of $76.81 or apply it to next year's subscription. I wonder if the price is cheaper because I was on auto-pay?
I emailed them and tweeted my displeasure at @MLB @mlbtv and @robmanfred. I’m sure I won’t get a response, but it can’t hurt.I'm on auto-pay and got the same e-mail.
If MLB wanted to do something for the fans this year they would lift the blackout rule. It's not like fans can go to the games so what's the point?
Problem is, local is complete bullshit. I live in North Carolina and I’m blocked out of Braves, Nationals, Orioles and Reds games. The closest team to me is Washington which is 325 miles (5 hour drive) away. I have no idea why the Reds are on the list. Cincinnati is 425 miles away (about the same distance as Boston to DC or Boston to Buffalo). Only the Braves are available through cable or satellite here so it’s impossible to watch the other teams’ home feed without resorting to illegal streams.I think the point of the blackout rule is that people pay their local cable provider, not that they'll go to the ballpark.
