Can someone smart help me here - ALCS/WS viewing
« on: March 11, 2018, 03:04:43 pm »
Earlier in the winter, I had just used my mlb.tv app (on the Apple TV) to re-watch the playoff games. But once Spring Training started, the calendar flipped to February 2018, and if you go in and select 2017 it lists all games starting in March 2017. It takes forever to load a new batch of dates as you scroll down; basically it's terrible and I haven't been able to get to the October part of the schedule without it crashing.

Has anyone else tried to watch recently via mlb.tv/apple tv? I know the games are available on Youtube, but I'm hoping to be able to watch on the actual TV, without having to do screen mirroring (which never works that well) from a laptop.

MLB has loaded all of the post season games on YouTube, for free.

Recently?  I could not get to many of the Boston games and some of the NY games previously.

So I just tried, and I can watch any game from last year, *except* the postseason.  For some reason, those tell me I need to be a MLB.TV subscriber.  Which I am.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Back in January I watched the whole post season on Youtube.
And she turned around and took me by the hand and said, I've lost control again. And how I'll never know just why or understand. She said I've lost control again.

I watched it all on my MLB app through the end of Feb.  Not sure why it's locked out now.

Is there not a YouTube app for Apple TV? I know my Roku has one.

The YouTube app for Amazon Fire recently disappeared, so it might not be available for Apple TV either.

Unless it was removed it does.

Thanks for this.  I found a couple more thanks to your suggestion.

What is NYA?  And, what would you search for for Boston and LA?

New York American. And search BOS and LAD or LAN.

This worked perfectly. Thanks! The YouTube app was further down the menu screen, where I rarely looked.

Outstanding.  That needs to be stickied in the gamezone section for easy reference.  Can't tell you how many time I've watched some of those games.  Others, I'm not sure I've ever seen twice.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"
