    They could be waiting for the release of 4.3...and then they'll update it again.
    Maybe? Hopefully.

    I was hopeful as well. But my guess is the AirPlay update isn't coming until March 31st; opening day. Come on MLB we all want AirPlay support NOW!!!!!:D

    When I updated it the update description said something along the lines of "compatibility across all iOS devices". I took that to mean when 4.3 is released the video will become airplay enabled.

    As a college student whose internet provider blocks airplay (and doesn't even let me access my itunes library) is it possible that the iOS update might make it so that MLB At Bat runs like Netflix does on the ATV?

    Airplay from MLB At-Bat would put me very close to dumping cable TV. What would be even better would be an MLB At-Bat app directly on the ATV2.

    How can they block airplay? You wouldn't even need an internet provider to use AirPlay on your local network.

    Does anybody know if you can use a cable to connect an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad to a TV and watch a game on the MLB app?

    Not as convenient as Airplay, but it would do in a pinch.

    iPad 2's HDMI adapter and screen mirroring would seem to make this possible.

    Certainly does make one think about dumping cable. I got MLB.tv the other day after I heard that the Samsung blu ray app had been updated to allow streaming of spring training games--it is a nice service although resolution is not always great depending on the feed. Now I just have to update my lite At Bat and I'll be set for the season. Now if only the NFL would have something like this but of course they would charge a lot more than $20 a month.

    I'm forgetting about MLB blackout rules, that apply to the At-Bat app. If you want to watch your home team, you'd have to connect through a proxy.

    I guess this is why the app isn't available to airplay.

    Can we log into multiple AppleTVs at the same time to watch our paid MLB.TV subscription?

    how would you connect the app on your ios device through a proxy?
    the ios devices like iphone and ipads use the gps to determine if you are in a black out area

    Ah. Didn't realise they used the built-in GPS for location.
