MLB Puts Out Update to At Bat for iOS, Android in Time for Spring Training Games

Posted by at 7:38 pm on February 21, 2013

Today we just got some of the first Spring training games and you could see them live, now that MLB Advance Media has released the latest version of At Bat.  At Bat is available for download from the iOS App Store and Android Google Play store. This season, pro baseball’s app is now offering a cross-platform subscription.  The 2012 season app hit 7 million, which surpassed the downloads during the 2010 and 2011 seasons combined.

How to Get The App

ip5_spring_2013To get the 2013 version of the app, iOS users simply have to download the update in the App Store — no need to download a whole new app. Returning Android users will have a choice depending on the app they have installed. If you had the app called At Bat, you just need to look for the update; if you had the At Bat ’12 app, you’ll have to look for a new app to download. (I’ll update this story with the direct link as soon as the app goes live.)

The app is free, but to unlock access to live games for the 2013 season and World Series, it requires a one-time in-app purchase $19.99 subscription fee — or iOS users can pay in month installments of $2.99. However, as with last year’s version, subscribers to the league’s MLB.TV subscription plan for watching games online can get At Bat 13 for free.

Android owners can subscribe for a one-time annual fee of $19.99 for the entire 2013 season, Spring Training through the World Series or login with their MLB.TV . Premium subscribers receive At Bat 13 for free.  Live video and full game archived video only is available on compatible Android devices running OS 2.2 or later.

This year, At Bat is offering some cost-saving deals for subscribers. Previously, fans had to pay separately for access to the mobile app as well as live game audio through the MLB.TV desktop website, but At Bat 13 subscribers will now get GameDay Audio (MLB.TV’s most popular feature) for free. And for subscribers who may own both iOS and Android devices: one subscription works on any platform now; you no longer have to pay for access on each.

androidNew Features for 2013 Spring Training Update

  • Multi-platform live audio access for At Bat subscribers, offering account portability to listen to live games on Mac/PC desktops and laptops.
  • Universal iOS and Android support for At Bat subscribers, full feature accessibility across all supported smartphones and tablets.

While they are not yet ready, a version of At Bat for Blackberry 10 and the Kindle will arrive by Opening Day.
