On Monday, At Bat 2010 users with an MLB.TV subscription will finally be
able to see streaming video
The best thing that ever happened to MLB.comâ€™s â€śAt Batâ€ť app for iPhone and iPod Touch was the addition streaming live video via MLB.TV subscription. The ability to watch games from the mobile platform was a benchmark that every other league has been working toward delivering on a regular basis.
So, when â€śAt Bat 2010â€ť was released just a short hour before Spring Training games started at the beginning of the month, one of the first thing fans zeroed in on was the day pre-season games would available for At Bat. â€śMid-Marchâ€ť the message in At Bat said, and here we are about to enter the last full week of the month, and still no streaming games.
On Monday, that will change when iPhone and iPod Touch users (sorry, Blackberry, Android, and Palm users, no streaming video for At Bat, yet) that have At Bat 2010 and an MLB.TV subscription will be able to start seeing games. Remember, there are still those bothersome blackout restrictions, but at least youâ€™ll be warm in knowing the functionality is there almost three weeks before Opening Day. Batter up.
