  1. Windows Central Question's Avatar
    Windows phone app store used to have the MLB.TV and MLB At Bat app, but I no longer see it. This app is quite important to me as I can watch games while on the train commuting. I don't want have to switch to an Android phone for the apps. Just last year they were available, anybody know what's up and if they will come back to windows phones?

    We'll have to wait and see what happens. I also sent a tweet to @mlb asking the same question but I didn't get a reply

    If I remember correctly, MLB for Windows Phone didn't arrive until right around opening day last year. I'd suggest waiting until the season starts to see if the app becomes available again.

    It actually was a little worse than that last year. They claimed they weren't going to release an app at all, so the first month and a half of the season we went without before they caved.

    Got the same response and a return for my annual subscription fee. Hopefully they come around. I just want a way to listen to games. If MLB, Tune-in Radio, or Sirius would get their act together and publish a UWP app I would be happy and gladly give them my money for a monthly or annual subscription.

    Tunein replied to me on twitter that their Universal W10 app is coming soon. That could be an option for listening to games but won't help if you want to watch.

    It's painful that the season officially started yesterday and yet, it seems like it is nowhere to be found. The kicker is that the iOS and Android apps were updated last week(!) for the season.

    They responded to my email about two days after I emailed them. I tweeted at them twice but they haven't replied

    Tune in is updated, but you can't use Tune in premium on Windows devices so you still can't listen to games on there. Their twitter response was "Hello! I believe it's in the works. Stay tuned."

    Still no viable option.

    Sucks there's no WP app. I'm on T-Mobile and get a free year of MLB.TV premium. Using the Lumia 950XL.

    Similar thing happened in 2015. At Bat was out for the 2014 season, but for some reason, they bowed out for 2015. Suddenly around late May / early June, At Bat 15 showed up in the store. Beggars can't be choosers, but the app was the exact same as the one that was released for 2014, save the name change. I don't see why they can't just do the same thing for 2016. I still have the app from last season installed and at least it's good for push notifications, however it doesn't seem to want to show scores or schedules anymore.

    Hopefully if people keep bugging them, we can at least get them to re-release the old app, just updated for this year. I travel a lot for work and it really stinks not being able to at least listen to the games on the road.

    Same here. At least last year there was an MLB app. Hopefully, if enough people complain about it they will get their act together and release At Bat for Windows Phone this season.

    It seems like it should be an easy thing to do, just update the existing app with current dates.Everything else in the app is current, I get score updates, and it has daily highlight videos. Just update it so I can listen to my games all ready MLB!

    I wish we had a universal app for Windows 10 but in the meantime check out the "MLB Streamer" app in the store. It's 3rd party and doesn't support video, but allows you to stream the audio feeds for your MLB.TV account. Lets you listen to the game on the drive home if nothing else.

    Just a shout out to the developer of MLB streamer! This was the only thing I was missing (others would be nice, but this is essential!!!!)

    I emailed them again and was very specific. I said that I have last years app and was waiting to renew my subscription when the app is updated. I asked if they were going to update it. Here's the response.

    Thank you for your inquiry. At Bat is available for supported Apple, Android and Kindle Fire/Fire Phone mobile devices for the 2016 season.

    If you have any additional questions, please contact Customer Service at 866-800-1275 (US) or 512-434-1542 (International).

    Sincerely,
    MLB.com Customer Service

    It's not going to happen, unfortunately. That's really disappointing

    Yeah, I had a renewing annual subscription and told them that I couldn't use it. They asked if I had another device to use, and when I said no, they refunded me. MLB Streamer works great for radio broadcasts, which is all I used previously.

    I just noticed the part about the Fire Phone being supported. Why? Isn't that more dead than the Windows Mobile apparently is?
