I'm guessing tomorrow or next Tuesday at the latest T-Mobile will announce the free MLB-TV package for their customers via the T-Mobile Tuesday app. I'll post in here if I get it tomorrow.

Just got an email saying that since I’m a prior subscriber I can get it for $15 off. So $45 instead of 60. Still high for what it is.

I have an extra from T Mobile that I will give away in exchange for a $50 donation to the Jimmy Fund. Message me if interested.

If there is a way to gift the sub to The Athletic, I have one for someone...

DM me.

For those of us unfortunate souls on Sprint, this apparently also applies (website says T-Mobile & Sprint customers in really small print). So maybe not so unfortunate...
Yeah, I'm Sprint too---download the app and you get a push every Tuesday with the latest offers.

They will shut off the account if they see it's being accessed from a non-T-Mobile subscriber. I had one I got from a T-Mobile person a couple years ago. It worked fine for 1-2 months (I was careful to never access it from the cell network) and then got shut off.

edit: This is in reference to MLB.TV, not The Athletic, just to be clear.

I know how to activate MLB.TV if I purchase through cable subscription. Can I do this in reverse? I "purchased" through MLB.TV--can I somehow log into Verison FIOS and make it so I can watch on big screen?

Or is it ROKU only?

Is Gameday Audio working for anyone? I tried on both my phone and my laptop, and while it says playing there's nothing but silence on all of the radio stations on this game.

EDIT: never mind, I'm an idiot and they're in a rain delay!

By watch on the big screen you mean on the extra innings stations on cable? If so then no, buying extra innings comes with mlb.tv but buying mlb.tv doesn't get you extra innings. Depending on your set up it's probably pretty easy to get mlb.tv to display on your tv though.

In case anyone didn't know, they do offer a military discount through Troop.ID, I got like $28 off or something, so I jumped on it.

Did any other season ticket holders (for any MLB team) get an email a week or so ago about having free access to MLB.TV this year? I'm almost certain I did, but I can't find the message now. If someone has it, can you kindly post the instructions for how to register and access? Thanks.

I've been "selected/invited" by MLB to take a survey about my experience with their app on Apple TV. Not sure how big of a sample MLB is going for, but if everyone isn't getting this I'm happy to add any Apple TV specific issues/requests you might have.

The only one I have is wanting the ability to quad-box and watch four games at once, instead of just two. You can do it on the MLB website and the ESPN and FOX apps let you do it on Apple TV. I'd have the same request for NHL.tv... it must have been a BAM thing during the development of both apps.

I feel your pain regarding the Oakland A's. MLB and any other network are prohibited from showing any game on Sunday night from 7pm to 11pm. It's not MLB's fault that A's games start at 4pm which bleeds into the 7pm dead zone. Of course being on the West Coast some of the Oakland games begin at 10 pm eastern. I love Mike Trout but he is hard to follow on the East Coast. Oh well.

MLB TV. I have had it for years and still, to this day. I can barely hear the play by play and then the commercials come on to blast my eardrums. And this year, the annoying, constantly repeating commercial is Roman. Every inning, every game.
I wonder if any executive that works for them has actually sat down and attempted to watch a game on this service?

This season, it appears that the PS4 version of the MLB.TV app now disables the pause, rewind, and fast forward buttons during commercial breaks. So, those of us who sometimes pick up the game late and try to catch up need to be really precise about when/how we try to advance things. The app also seems to randomly crash more often than I recall happening during previous seasons.
