MLB at Bat sides with T-Mobile for season-long free streaming

Back in March the Major League Baseball developers updated their popular MLB.com at Bat app for Android in time for the 2013 season, and today we have even better news. While their app is much better than previous years, it's the new partnership that will get you excited. T-Mobile customers will be happy to learn they'll be able to stream the Game of the Day, each day, for free.

All those die-hard baseball fans that enjoyed Spring Training and are ready for things to get into full swing, this will be your perfect companion for the entire season. As long as you have a signal from T-Mobile to keep those video streams running smooth. Their newly launched 4G LTE networks should help, but they are few and far in-between.

The app is free to download, but you'll be spending $19.99 or so to enjoy live streaming of the games to your mobile device. However, if you're on T-Mobile just sign up (or sign in) and you will be getting that same awesomeness absolutely free. Here's the little popup appearing for many. - Thanks @WinDroidGuy!

It sounds like you'll need to download the app before June 30th, which is the day this promotion expires from T-Mobile. So don't delay. T-Mobile customers will get MLB.TV free Game of the Day streaming - not all games. Live audio of all home and away broadcasts, and much more. This is not a full MLB.TV subscription, as that costs a bit more and lets you watch every single game. Those on T-Mobile just got a nice treat, now if only the NFL and Verizon would do this, then I'd be happy. Enjoy!

    Not sure this gives you streaming for every game. If the screenshot is to be believed, this is giving you the full AtBat app for free (which is normally $19.99). This entitles you to ONE free streaming game per day.

    Which is still a pretty sweet deal.

    EDIT: Research elsewhere indicates what I say above appears to be the case: The app is free, you get the video streaming for one game each day (blackout rules apply, however). You do get the radio broadcast audio for every game, every day, no blackouts.

      Yup. I guess we could word it better. We stated “T-Mobile customers will get MLB.TV free Game of the Day streaming. Live audio of all home and away broadcasts, and much more.”

      Game of the Day video. The rest is audio
