    I have signed up for extra innings this season. As a Yankee fan here in Ohio I have been able to watch the Yankees spring training games that have been televised on MLB.TV through my apple tv. I know there is supposed to be a link where you can link your EI subscription to MLB.TV but once the season starts I will not use MLB.TV to watch games unless the Directv signal goes out which does not happen to me very often so I guess I am lucky.

    I have been reading these posts. I have the MLB At Bat App on my iPhone & have been able to watch any Spring Training Game I want to linked with my Extra Innings Subscription. Of course I mostly use my DIRECTV service because of the delay. But I do get the games on my phone if need be. Haven't had any problems with any logins. I don't go through MLB.TV, I use the MLB At Bat. Back on like March 1st is when I linked my At Bat App with my DIRECTV credentials & have been linked ever since. You may want to try downloading At Bat and using that instead of MLB.TV.

    MLB At Bat is what I'm using. Linking my MLB account to my DirecTV account doesn't work. Others in this thread report the same issue. If you can provide step-by-step instructions of how you linked your accounts, I will give it a try.

    Open your At Bat App up. Click "More" at the Bottom Right Hand Side. Then from there click on "Account" up at the Top Right it should be in Blue. From there you should be able to either sign in with your name and password for the app or find where you can enter your DIRECTV credentials and link the app with your DIRECTV Subscription. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

    I called MLB support this morning after again getting a failure when trying to authenticate my DirecTV account. The support rep looked up my MLB and said it is not linked to my DirecTV account, and it has to be addressed by DirecTV. She said they have had a lot of calls from DirecTV subscribers about this issue. So I looks like DirecTV is going to make us wait until opening day to see if it works.

    MLB Extra Innings doesn't start until the regular season starts. It was just a fluke some people were able to authenticate through EI earlier this spring that was corrected. It has always been this way.

    If it's any consequence,
    legacy free accounts nor current 10$ accounts are able to *currently link either.

    They are aware.

    Mostly before the buyout where Directv employees had certain packages and/or services for free.

    Some (and bargained) Current Att employees are on 10$ all included ultimate, dog tv, epiX, hbo, hbo max, & Sunday Ticket Max perks.

    Correct.. The MLB.tv link through extra innings has never included spring training.. Always activates on opening day
