I am currently trying to get a refund from MLB.tv. Don't believe the ads that say, "Watch all the games on your favorite device". I have all the requirements needed to watch games. I have an HTC phone with Android 2.2. They are now saying this phone will not be supported. Also the tablet I have was just able to get games.

If you want to go to MLB.tv, go to their support forums and make sure your "Favorite Device" can actually do everything they promise.

I have a Roku and have had a bad problem with rebuffering. The Panasonic Smart tv I have doesn't have any of the extras they promised, such as watching 2 or 4 games at once. They didn't tell me thayt until AFTER the date I could get a refund. My internet download speed is a consistent 8 Mps. The minimum they require is only 3 Mps, but it still rebuffers at least once an inning.

Some people have had a lot of luck, hope you do too!


Sorry you've had problems with MLB.TV. I've had absolutely no rebuffing issues on my PS3; the Roku isn't quite as good. No rebuffing, but sometimes the picture goes to what looks like wide-screen SD for a second or two before switching back to HD. Even in HD the PQ on the Roku isn't as good as on the PS3.

The PS3 was actually a really good investment for me; not only does it play games, but it doubles as a great blu-ray player and it's a gateway to Hulu plus the NHL, MLB and (this fall) NFL Sunday Ticket.

Good luck in getting your refund from MLB.TV.

Calling the number I provided should make it an easy process. I had mine instantly.

Oh no MLB I'm watching the normally blacked out Tigers Weekly because the Tigers game is in rain delay. Might want to black this out MLB, I'm ripping you off by watching this. You'd clearly be better off blacking me out so I'd switch to the NHL playoffs or shutting off my TV.

No, not usually. Sometimes they'll screw up and let you watch just enough to piss you off! As soon as it gets interesting, it's gone!

I have to tell u i'm really pleasantly surprised at the quality of mlbtv.com premium and watching the games on my HD Roku player and also can watch them on my apps on my Panny Viera HDTV it has mlbtv.com on it too. I'm so glad i went the mlbtv premium route and saved all the money b/c the picture quality with my high speed internet connection looks just like MLB extra innings. The games are HD quality. 114.99 mlbtv vs directv at 223.96. Over 100 bucks savings. Happy camper here!

mlb.tv has 1 free game every day. however that was the frist radio only game for broadcast they did.

I have MLB EI so i was able to watch the game. but i do check the quality of mlb.tv with the free game.

so far, I'm happy with mlb EI.

I have mlb.tv, too, and the video was available because I checked it. Maybe it was radio only for free.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

You dont have to record it. Its like a DVR, when you go to the game it will ask you if you want to start live, beginning of the game or I think there is another option. I also think they keep the games stored for a certain amount of time. Not sure on that one though. Hope this helps.

Yes. I think on the internet they keep the whole season. Not so sure how long on devices like xbox, roku, mobile devices.

You are blacked out of local games but they are available one hour after the last pitch for replay.

When the term "free game" is used here, what does that mean? How do you know what game is free? I have MLBEI already, but I'll be away from this weekend and if the "free game" happens top be the Dodgers on Sat/Sun then I'll watch it via MLB.tv on my brother's Roku.

MLB.com list the free game each day starting at 11 am. Just look to the left where it has the days schedule. The game that is free has a box around it saying free game of the day or something like that.

Okay, got it, thanks. It actually says "MLB.TV FREE GAME" in the box itself, today's game is Houston at Pittsburgh.

alot of afternoon games, travel days and god why in the world are we having 1pm games on a tuesday in the heart of the begining of the work week.

Ok seriously, can someone explain why MLB thought of having a pair of 2 game sets this week then starting 1 weekend of interleague, and the rest on june.

today astros phillies 1pm, they will try and get the game in, its been raining all morning and rush hour showers expected.

so come 4 or 5pm ish we are going to have showers, heavy in spots going home traffic and going home baseball traffic = hell on the roads.

More afternoon weekday games = more gooder. I wish there would be at least one daily.

I know for the local traffic, TV ratings, and attendance it sucks - but as an avid baseball fan, having games on more often is better than juggling watching 10+ night games.

I work retail so I have odd days off. Its nice to have a professional sporting event on in the afternoons when I'm off.

well having the new xfinity live complex up is a help. I haven't been to an afternoon game since it opened. But I am next month. I rather spend the 90 min that would be traffic time at a place and go home after the rush hour.

every afternoon between 4-7 the traffic is extremely bad, adding baseball traffic, work traffic, and now beach traffic, along with Rain is just bad.

Well, that happens with bad urban planning. Philly has dumped too much stuff into the I-95 corridor and the area around the sports complex especially with bad access and egress from the stadia themselves. A complete mess.

I wouldnt say that a complete mess,

they do have all stadiums in 1 section only city to do that. you have 2 interstates, in a tristate area.

Also close to airport, center city, train station, and you have a subway.

also tons of parking so it is done well, but your right their will always be the heavy traffic, it sucks and it sucks that i95 that bridge to cross the water is right there.

I always go with the subway it is the best way to travel. I park my car at a train station away from the stadium area.
