Anyone doing MLB.TV this year? I'm about to sign up again. I didn't need it last year as I was in WI, but I'm now out of state again and need to get the service.

Was there anything new last year? Have you seen anything new for this year?

Random question but I was able to sign in to my parent's fox sports go account and watch Brewer's games, the last few weeks of last year, when we moved.. It doesn't seem to be working now. Did they change something?

Not sure why Fox Sports Go wouldn't work as long as you have the log-in info.

It was using location services and then only giving me local stuff, not the WI sports. Maybe it was just being goofy that day when I tried it because this fall it worked.

This isn't all that helpful for you, but apparently a new perk of being a 20 pack holder includes a free mlb.tv subscription. I thought I'd mention for any 20 pack holders that haven't seen or noticed this perk yet.

As for fox sports go, I haven't tried a game yet this year but I would assume it should work normally. Probably just a weird day as you said. If they are in Wisconsin, they shoudl get FS Wisconsin and you should too on fox sports go.

I've had that perk from my 20-game subscription for several years now.

Hmm, maybe I missed the notification in prior years then. I swear my rep told me it's a new promotion this year. Maybe I needed to get a certain level of seniority to get it. That's interesting though, and disappointing as I would have definitely used it previous years.

I am a full season ticket holder and this is the first year I was told about a MLB.tv account perk. I even paid for it a few years ago when I was traveling for work a lot.

Just signed up today and tuned in to the game. I’ve really enjoyed the service over the years.

I got AtBat - the audio-only version for the past 6 years. But never got MLB.tv until this season.

I've had MLB.TV for the last couple of years since I moved to MN. However, this year I started my Master's degree, which makes me a student. Hello 35% discount.

Fox sports go will only work in the location you are currently in...IE,you won’t get brewers games using FSG if you’re in say Texas. Find a friend who has T-Mobile as they are giving away mlbtv to subscribers again this year.

I have MLB.tv and got the one team only subscription. Saves a few bucks off of the regular MLB.tv service. Sorry to the other 29 teams but I only care about watching the Crew.

I get MLB TV for free since I am a T-Mobile customer. Just a reminder if you are a customer of them that you have only a few days to claim the free subscription.

Sorry to dig up an old topic, but I received my yearly email for the free subscription to MLB.TV with my 20-game season ticket package.

For years, we have had the MLB Extra Innings package on Directv but I am seriously considering cutting that service (and the $183 price tag!) and using the free subscription with my Roku player.

I live in Arizona so the blackout rules for most Brewer games will not apply (I still will get the Sports Pack so I can watch pre- and post- game coverage, as well as the games in which the Brewers play in Phoenix.)

Anyway, reading reviews online are a crap-shoot. Some people love it, some people hate it. Some complain of buffering on 1gb super fast ethernet speeds. Some don't. I don't know what to believe.

Can I get any user reviews from you folks?

Thanks in advance!

I use MLB.TV through Fire TV. And on my laptop. It's great. I have few buffering issues despite running it over Wi-Fi. I will note that the broadcast tends to be about 20 seconds behind other sources so if you find that annoying it could be a downside.

Pitchleague, I've used mlb.tv for 5 or 6 years. I love it, and never have an issue with buffering. I don't have gigablast or anything like that. I love the versatility of having it streaming. When I'm out of state in my summers, I get Brewers games everywhere (except Wisco). My only issue was last year the Brewers games in San Diego were blacked out for some reason in Scottsdale. No clue why, I spent like an hour on hold. I was told it shouldn't have been. But never got an answer or apology.

I live in California and watched MLB.TV Brewer games for the first time on my Roku smart TV this past year.

Worked like a champ - smooth as silk.

I too am a big fan of MLB.TV. I'd say I've had the service for a good 7-8 years now. I've never had any issues with it, besides a random couple seconds here and there of the picture getting blurry. I'd say that is pretty rare now. I've got 100 mbps currently. I love being able to watch on the go, and also use the audio part of the subscription a ton. Perfect for sitting on the deck or in a boat, in the summer. I would highly recommend the service.

I use Apple TV and the app on my tv.

MLB.TV is a great product, and I like putting on other teams when the Brewers aren't playing, but MLB is stupid for blacking out local teams. I didn't know this, but someone told me you can't get Chicago games in Milwaukee, and in Iowa you can't get a most of the Central Division because of their location. Baseball's popularity is going down, and making it more difficult for fans to watch games isn't going to help anything. I don't know if this is due to TV contracts, or what, but it's so frustrating to say the least.

It is the tradeoff for the massive TV contracts that everyone signs--exclusive rights to the market. Most now accept that this is terrible for the long-term health of baseball, particularly attracting new and younger fans. But at the current time the TV contracts are too valuable to get changes.
