A few days ago Major League Baseball released the 2012 version of its MLB At Bat app. The app, which is a huge hit amongst Baseball enthusiasts lets fans watch and listen to games from their mobile device while also providing play by play coverage and informative graphical overlays alongside televised games.
And with Spring Training around the corner, here’s what all you Baseball die hards will be able to access:
- MLB.TV Premium subscribers can watch live video of over 150 Spring Training games
- MLB.TV Premium subscribers receive At Bat 12 for free
- Listen to available radio broadcasts of Spring Training games
- Follow batter-by-batter action for every Spring Training game
- Breaking news, schedules and interactive rosters and player stats for every team
- Customize At Bat’s home screen to feature your designated favorite team
- Enhanced video library archive, searchable by player, team or keyword
MLB.tv Premium membership costs $ 124.99/season or $ 24.99/month and lets users watch any game from the MLB website. These users can get the same service on their iPhone or iPad for $ 24.99/month. So essentially, you’re paying extra for having the convenience of mobile. These users will be able to access games via their Apple TV as well.
If you’re not an MLB.tv Premium member, you can make an in app purchase for $ 14.99/season or $ 2.99/month that’ll get you radio broadcasts from all the games and GameDay features. Essentially, you get everything minus the live broadcasts, though subscribers are granted one free broadcast game per day along with “live look-ins” that will let you check out live games when something important is going down.
You can check out MLB At Bat on iTunes as a free universal download – the above subscriptions are served as in-app purchases.
