    Yeah it was weird that it wasn’t showing up. I called customer service and they said try the webpage, and that was fine.

    My other friend found it in the app as well.

    Oh well, now I will check both on Tuesday’s. Strange they would be different when they are both set to present based on the phone number

    As long as you were able to successfully redeem it that's all that matters. I had to use my mother's phone to redeem it and just login to my mlb account in her phone to complete it. It wouldn't let me tap on it in my app on my phone. Likely due to that I'm running the first beta of Android 10 and now anything on the part of TMobile.

    It won't show up in iOS, I assume because of Apple's rules.

    THIS STINKS Opening Day, I go to my Bolt to open the MLB.TV app I so enjoyed last season and it's nowhere to be found : ( Well, one less thing to be glad I have a Tivo about. The screen I want to watch on is not a Smart TV either, so I am out of luck. Nothing more frustrating than having LESS tech options as the years go by. I feel that way about some other things too. It's as if we enjoyed a decade of improvements and we've crested that hill and are picking up momentum in the other direction. (Sorry to be metaphorical, but I love baseball)

    This was MLBs decision to drop Opera and WebOS based apps.

    In a pinch, a laptop hooked up to your tv will do the trick, or pickup an Amazon FireStick, and since your TV may be just 1080p, you can get a stick for $19 in a couple of places on Amazon Warehouse etc. or get the 4K stick for $29-39, which has a faster processor and a little more future protection.

    Most of us are hoping that when Tivo has a hardware partner come out with an Android TV based model, that TiVo will also support (at the very least) an upgrade of the bolt and mini box to Android OS. If that occurs it wouldnt special apps for the TIVO anymore since Android TV OS is quickly becoming the standard for MSOs using IPTV services.

    That said, right now I am not sure the odds of getting that kind of upgrade will be offered since TIVo needs to continue to focus or shed staff in the short term due to loss of earnings. I truly hope I am wrong.

    The Roku app is updated. More navigation within a game.

    With the Apple TV app you can do a split screen, and watch 2 games at once.

    This is my 3rd year getting MLB free through T-Mobile and I was disappointed to discover they don't support my LG OLED TV. I thought okay, then I'll just watch via my TiVo and was disappointed again. Thankfully I have an Xbox One X and MLB still supports it. So now I have to turn on yet another device, when it used to be so simple when I could get it just through my TV. Get your crap together MLB!

    And they conveniently dropped their support forum in advance of this, knowing that a lot of people would probably be very unhappy about the decision.

    MLB.TV actually dropped the support forum before the 2018 season, at the time they dropped my PS3 (and others I'm sure) as a supported device. I know because I had to use their chat line to figure out how to apply the radio overlay using my newly purchased Roku Ultra.
    Speaking of audio on the Roku MLB app, anyone else notice that the radio overlay is about half the volume of the TV audio? I have to ratchet it up and then mute it during the regular TV audio volume commercial breaks. I don't recall having that issue prior to this season.

    MLB TV on the Apple TV 4K is by far the best. The video quality is amazing. For those that can afford that device, I highly recommend it.

    Actually the best was straight through my LG OLED 4K TV, without having to use another box.

    Fair enough, I have an lg set too and can stream it all there too but all the streaming apps are better on an Apple TV...and the mlb atbat app on the Apple TV has been superior in terms features to any other tv or box...radio audio overlay, dual screens (two games on the same time), and it does it at 60fps.

    Maybe the features are better with an Apple TV, but I'm not going to buy one just to use MLB. And Apple charges too much for their content, to use it all the time. Also pretty sure when the MLB app was on my LG OLED TV, it was 60fps.

    Apple charges nothing for there content. If you buy a Apple TV there is no on going charges
