App has been broken for quite a few updates now. Listening to radio broadcasts is hit and miss anymore. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Want to watch the condensed game, video highlights or the game recap? Sorry, not going to happen. 95% of the time you try to watch a video it says “video playback error” “an error occurred during the playback of video” On the miraculous 5% chance you DO get to watch one of the videos, trying to rotate your screen to accommodate a full screen video is next to impossible. Want to read the articles? Good luck! It tries to auto play the videos all the time and you get the obnoxious “video playback error” pop up. Update: can’t even include enough information in the “contact us” form they asked me to fill out. Apparently has a 300 character maximum. Found that out after wasting time typing a lengthy description of the app being broken.
Getting to any games video feed is difficult because it is well hidden from a specific teams ‘home’ page and the ‘scores’ page on both iOS apps for iPad and iPhone. Also things like a navigating to a teams page, a teams roster, transactions, coaches etc. are also difficult to find and execute. Video highlights and full games don’t respond when you try to use the slider, the video freezes on the frame and the audio keeps playing. The app was great in the past but oh man does it stink and has taken sever leaps and stumbles backwards. Please fix!
Live this app and have for years but for 2021, when I try to stream, it says welcome back and asks me to press continue but this does nothing. Please fix and I’ll gladly change this review and select 5 stars Update: 1 week into the 2021 baseball season and the app still won’t stream games. Fix this so we are getting what we pay for!
30 second load times for 15 second ads to watch a 12 second highlight. Not cool.
The App does not allow full screen when watching live games.
So apparently in my area all of the Astro’s games are blacked out due to restrictions. While replays and clips work great, the live TV was going to be my main draw and it doesn’t work.
Half the stuff on this app doesn’t work, I have a new phone and latest Ios version... once again the mlb app falls short of all other sports apps
I don’t watch baseball because it’s such a boring game. But the reason I’m giving this one-star review is because of MLB’s misguided action in removing the All-Star game from Georgia. Hope their action takes a declining game into accelerated demise. Hoping their cancellation of Georgia Sparks the cancellation of baseball by more and more Americans.
Streams are decent on iPad, does have to buffer often which limits quality. But the app can barely stream to chromecast. Video freezes and buffers every 10-30 seconds causing delay and poor quality. After 30 min to an hour the stream will be a half inning or more behind live time, it’s pathetic and almost unwatchable. I basically only use the app to watch and cast games and this app has a hard time doing that. It’s unfortunate since I’ve been an mlbtv member for 5+ years.
It’s impossible to watch a game on tv when casting from the app. It’s constantly buffering. It’s been this way for years. It’s definitely the app because I have no other problems with other apps and casting from a laptop works fine when it doesn’t cause Chromecast to crash.
