how much is it this year? I live in state so don't have to worry about buying it, but I'll buy the MLB at bat app to listen to some of the day games at work.
They blackout local games which sucks

Its $129 for the premium $109 for the regular. This will be my 3rd year and as a Braves fan I love it.
I didn't think I would use the service to watch non tiger games, but I find myself tuning in to good pitching matchups and games against division leaders.
On Sundays in the summer, I am usually at st Pete beach listening to dan & Jim at 1
Had the streaming MLB radio feed last year which was nice, the previous year I tried the MLB.tv package and was disappointed due to blackouts and the online feed was bad at best.
I'll probably just get the radio feed again this year, $110 is a bit much especially when you miss most games due to other obligations.
Gotten it the past 2 seasons so I can watch the Indians. Great service. I like being able to tune into big games and potential no hit bids and such.
this is going to be my third year with it. first year HD was included on the standard version, last year they made you buy premium to get HD. Still worth it. Can't wait. Also I shared my login with 3 people by the end of the year. Worked everytime.
I like it.. here in Cali is nice..
Get the premium- the mlb app is sweet.. tv/radio for all the games on your phone.. and hook it up with the PS3

I had it the last two years I was in Baltimore for the Tigers. For the amount of games you get, the price is ridiculously good. The only problems I ever had were with Fox blacking out games on Saturdays in the summer, but that was only a few games a year.
Now that I'm in Germany, I'm not sure I'm going to get it. Does anyone know if they do games On-demand that I could watch the next day?

This was great last year on my xbox. I'll probably get it again. The HD feed seemed as good or better than some of the local broadcasts of Phillies games.
the MLB native app on my AppleTV is only like $3.99 for the season.....what am i getting for that? Or is that just Apple scamming more money from me, and its an activation fee and i still need to purchase MLB.TV
I am pretty sure that is just the MLB At Bat App. You can use it to look up scores and stats. You would need the MLB.tv package to be able to watch games.
I have used it the past few seasons. I might just get the baseball package from my cable provider this year. I had connection issues last season and there were times it wouldn't even work. It's great though because you definitely get your worth out of it.
Do you know if the TV subscription includes a licence for the At Bat App? My dad gets the cable sub every year, I'm wondering if I can use his subscription to listen to games on my phone at work.
I had it last year when I lived in Charlotte so know a little bit about it. With my subscription I got all out of market games and and the app for free. The app is included with the subscription. I watched it on my Xbox and had great picture on it. The HD is great. I loved having the app so I could listen to games on the golf course, at work or in the car. If you live in market though, I believe all you need is a radio app to get the broadcasts. They library all the games to watch whenever you want. Also games blacked out due to MLB rules become available to watch after they finish. They also offer 5 minute recaps of games. I found these to be sweet for games I didn't have time to watch. It's just a far better alternative to waiting for SportsCenter to show you 45 seconds of the game. You can also toggle between home and away announce teams. So I always got Mario and Rod and I could listen to John Miller call Matt Cain's perfect game.
If you are thinking about getting it, my advice is to first check the MLB blackout map below. The MLB blackout rules might be the most absurd thing ever. I lived in Charlotte which is a complete cluster f on that map. It is technically in market for Atlanta, D.C., Baltimore and Cincinnati. That means when the Tigers played those teams I did not get them live. That came out to 9 games last year. Not a ton of games but still significant and frustrating when you still cannot watch because you don't have the Reds' and Oriole's networks. This might not be a deal breaker in some parts of the country but if you live in Iowa the Cubs, White Sox, Brewers, Twins, Cardinals, and Royals. Having 3 of the 5 AL Central teams games blacked out is really going to limit how much you can get for your $120. Also, remember the Tigers are a great team and likely to be nationally televised on Fox and ESPN quiet a bit this season.
I still think it is sweet. I live in market for the Tigers now but I am going to split it with my buddy in D.C. so I can watch out of market games. But check the map before you get it.
I've thought about doing this but my problem is my internet connection slow enough to the point where I'm concerned about all the buffering that would probably happen (and the internet is thru my building so I don't exactly have options). So that, along w/ the fact that I'm usually not home by 6pm CT for first pitch, has led me to go the regular TV route w/ the MLB Extra Innings package. More $$ and fewer HD games for sure, but I just DVR the games and start watching after I get home.
You can watch any game at any time with MLB.TV, it's not just live, you can start and stop live broadcasts, watch full replays of games and it skips commercial breaks, or watch a highlight they put together of all archived games.
Ahh.....good deal. If I move later this year (and it involves a faster internet connection :) ) I'll for sure look at this seriously.
Do i get this through my cable provider, mlb.com or through my ps3. I saw some people mention their xbox. So my main question is, how do i buy this?
Yeah, I'm in Ohio and I used it last season and loved it, the only issue was when it was on Fox or it was against the Racist Logos and I had to watch it on TV, which meant going to the bar because I don't have cable, but hey, I didn't mind using the excuse to watch a game at the bar. And as far as the picture, I have the lowest cable speeds that Time Warner offers (mostly because Time Warner is shit and I know they don't give you advertised speeds so not much point paying for higher bandwidth when they throttle it so much) and I never had a game not in HD. It's better than Netflix as far as picture is concerned as I sometimes have issues with Netflix.
