MLB Positive Reviews
Great app but...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..Version: 12.3.0
Video function fixed; notifications still MIAUPDATE: 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..Version: 12.1.4
VR BASEBALLSome 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..Version: 13.5.1
Has what I want but very buggyI 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..Version: 14.1.0
Can’t hold the live feedI 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..Version: 14.2.1
Great App!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..Version: 13.1.0
CrashesEdit. 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..Version: 12.3.0
Great appLove 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..Version: 11.0.1
Great but needs one more thingI 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.Version: 11.1.1
Customer Service issuesI 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..Version: 11.2.2
At Bat ReviewI 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..Version: 11.1.1
Slowly gone downhillThere have been little issues over that’s few seasons that make this still the best app for MLB baseball, but not the stalwart it once was... Issues with startup and consistent loading have crept in, and finding and reading stories is often a problem...
On a separate note, I still have yet to understand how Des Moines, Iowa can be blacked out from 5 markets, which means that purchasing a MLB video plan to watch the Rangers is just dumb... The closest market, KC, is 3 hours away, and the rest are more than 5 hours... At that point I’m watching the game regardless, especially considering tickets and gas and concessions equals the cost of the .TV subscription...
You’re making it hard for me not to seek out “alternative” streams... Especially now that Bally’s is worthless in their streaming....Version: 14.2.1
Best Baseball appThis is the best sporting app there is. Has everything you would want to know about any team like it should. Plus multiple ways to keep up with scores, pitch by pitch analysis, or just watching each game!.Version: 10.6.0
V 14.2.1 (rescind initial review)The version plays MLB.TV.Version: 14.2.1
Default Language IssuesThis app is a pretty good way to watch MLB. I subscribe on an iPad from north of the 49th parallel. There are issues.
The audio for US video feeds(e.g. ESPN, YES for NYY feeds, or Bally Sports for other US feeds) defaults to Spanish instead of the native audio that accompanies the selected TV feed. In such cases I must select teams’ radio feed if I want to hear English coverage of that team. So no Dave Cone for NYY games. No Ron Darling for Mets games, etc. (NESN can keep Dennis Eckersley)
The picture-in-picture functionality is also flaky; the video has a tendency to sometimes disappear while the app thinks it’s still running. In such cases, device has must rebooted, feed must be re-invoked in MLB.TV and user must scroll forward to pick up continuity.
I like the bottom-of-the-screen game status bar that users can call up..Version: 13.10.2
Great except for one thing...Love having all access to any game and the stream quality is fantastic, however you cant close boxscores on the screen so it takes up quite a lot of the screen..Version: 14.4.0
👍Pretty good app
Baseball is the best
Good in CanadaI buy this for the playoffs in Canada. Roughly $30CDN for 60+ games. Nice. It works beautifully on Apple TV..Version: 13.8.0
Good appLike the game day feature.Version: 14.2.0
App now shuts downNever had an issue on my phone but on my iPad the app will close down anywhere from after 60 to 180 minutes. I will have another game playing on the tv then out of the blue, silence and there is the scoreboard. I only use the app on my phone for the radio so no idea if that would have the same issue. The app on my TV has no problems.
Please try to sort this out..Version: 14.1.0
Why...?For whatever reason, the MLB has decided that auto-play videos - with audio, mind you - belong on the home page. Because everyone loves that.
Mute the video that’s playing, and it reloads again, with the audio on. The only strategy now is to open the app and, as quick as possible, tap any link to navigate away before the video starts. It’s like diffusing a bomb.
Other than that, the app is fine. I’m not sure baseball is but here we are....Version: 14.1.0
Please bring back widget!I see that in the latest update (14.0.0) the widget is gone - I hope that comes back before opening day..Version: 14.0.0
