    Thanks. I tried it and got "Authorization service was not able to complete authorization at this time. "

    Will MLB EI via D* still include MLB.tv for 2017?

    Right. I was going to post this since I hadn't followed up from my original post being worried about being locked out because MLB EI is slow to activate the MLB.TV link.

    So as long as you have a pay TV subscription to MLB Network, you were able to watch all games live, even if they weren't live on MLB Network. Still locked out of ST games with no end in sight even though I have the 2017 subscription showing up as auto-renewal activated on directv.com.

    If you really want spring training games you could buy an additional month of mlb.tv for $24.99, or in the off-season get the $10 off-season special, which includes spring training. Mlb and directv both told me mlb.tv with extra innings is only guaranteed to work in the regular season, basically they said when the ei mix channel appears it's guaranteed to authorize.

    Not worth paying extra for preseason games when most of them can be viewed on the RSNS. As long as it works when the season starts, that's what really matters. The WBC games are available online.

    Or, they could, you know, authenticate the service I am now being billed for.

    What Bradman said. Paid for and included-please authorize!

    According to Directv (I spoke to a CSR this morning) the preseason isn't included but access will be turned on when the regular season begins.

    I was able to activate this morning ...really activate go the subscription FAQ click on the last one select D* and log in ... my accounts are linked from last year so that's all I had to do ...but it works so March 25th this year, I bet they delayed it till after the WBC thinking that might get them more subs for March, if so it was a bad idea the more people watching baseball the better for baseball ... they haven't always believed that to their detriment.

    I brought my account out of suspension a few days ago(I only use DirecTV during the baseball season), ordered and paid in full for MLB-EI and I'm getting spring training via MLB.tv. I didn't need to re-authorize or re-login, it just worked.

    I have been authenticated also. It worked on my TV and PC. But I can't get it to work on my android phone (S7 edge).I get a message that tells me it won't work on a flash enabled phone. I called MLB and they told me it won't work until opening day. Anyone else have this problem?

    I had to login again to my mlb account on my S7 Edge before At Bat would activate. Maybe that will work for you too.
