    It ended right after postseason for me. Apparently many other people don't have access right now either.

    I don't have access to MLB.TV either. I did after the season. Even watched some World Series replays on there right around Christmas, but I tried to watch a little spring training yesterday and was told I needed to upgrade my MLB.TV package.

    Preseason Games Blacked Out for me today. I am getting the dreaded "this program is not available in your area" message at the bottom of my screen when trying to watch the Angels vs Cubs Preseason Game and also getting the same message on Channel 669 for Brewers vs Royals Preseason. I thought Preseason Games were never supposed to be blacked out?

    Sounds like replays, or maybe replays that were on MLB Network, are being blacked out.

    No these were LIVE Games in the early afternoon at 2:00 PM local time. I know that in the evening sometimes the RSN’s show that days replay in the evening. But these games were LIVE.

    Same here. I had 2 DVR recordings set on RSNs today. One recorded, while the other cancelled due to blackout. Channel 692 was the one that didn't record. Doesn't make a lot of sense.

    I'm an Extra Innings subscriber for 2017, will the app MLB At-Bat allow for streaming this season as a Extra Innings subscriber with DTV?

    When I login to my DirecTV account, and go to the MLBEI page, it says I am already subscribed.

    Still cannot access MLB.tv either on my PC or through my Roku.

    And here was a weird one today.

    Angels are a home team for me, but I was able to watch both FSW and FSSW feeds of today's Rangers v Angels game.

    On the other hand, I was blacked out of the live feed of today's Reds v Brewers game.

    It's amazing there are teething pains every spring for a product that is now over 20 years old!

    Yes, it should. I'm also an EI subscriber with MLB.TV and I can stream the games through At-Bat.

    EI subscriber, and I've tried to access MLB.tv every day this week with no success, until today.

    Today it loaded on my PC, Roku, and Galaxy 6, without prompting for any authentication on any of the 3 devices. Nice that all my login information stayed stored from last season.

    If you still don't have access your can watch replays for free.. MLB has been uploading full games to their YouTube channel, and amazingly it's not limited to Spring Training games, I watched the Cubs come back win against the Mariners from August, and some other regular season Cubs games.
    i think it's amazing that MLB is putting full games on YouTube, but the NFL woudln't even allow their own teams to post snippets on Social Media.

    Just to throw it out there, those with T-Mobile can get the full MLB at at no cost on April 4th via the T-Mobile Tuesday app.

    The DIRECTV website finally has the price of MLB Extra Innings. No surprise at $172.74.

    I've been debating and asking myself if it is worth the 60 extra dollars or so to get EI on Dish. It would be great to not be tied down to a game on the xbox, so I could switch off mlb for the wife. Xbox One makes it easier if you have your HD receiver going through your xbox, you can switch between the 2 almost instantaneous.

    MLB.tv giveth, and MLB.tv taketh away.

    Saturday I was able to access MLB.tv on 3 different devices, but today I can't get into any of them.

    DirecTV says I'm already subscribed to EI, but when I click on the link to activate MLB.tv, a screen with a big white box saying ( Object Arguments) appears.

    And when I go here...

    MLB.TV - Authentication

    ...I get the dreaded message:

    Authorization service was not able to complete authorization at this time. Please contact your pay TV provider.


    Has anyone else lost access after having it?

    Yeah... I thought your original post was amusing as my access, which had been working for a week, stopped the day you posted.

    Unless something changes, the next data point is March 14/15 when the activations started working in 2016.

    I had the Cards-Twins game on FSNOR set to record today, but the recording cancelled itself as soon as it started because of blackout rules. I turned to the channel and it wasn't blacked out. I was then able to set a recording from the guide. Seems like it's always hit-or-miss with DirecTV.

    Having the same issue for about a week. I WAS able to access MLB TV games early last week. Tried watching some games Saturday and kept getting the same message after trying the link the account on several devices. I was on the phone with DirecTv & MLB.TV for about 2 hours that day trying to sort things out. I AM subscribed to EI this year. But when I called MLB TV they told my I am not subscribed after giving them my login info. I'm getting very frustrated. If this issue isn't sorted out by the start of regular season I'm cancelling.
