    Anybody with an MLB.TV subscription able to pull up the few spring training games? I can pull them up on computer, but my ATV2 app seems to be stuck in replays of last season's games. I've logged out and back in a few times, and have fully updated my ATV2. According to mlb.tv's site:

    Watch every-out-of-market game LIVE in HD quality with MLB.TV Premium on your Apple TV. Don't have time watch the live game? Easily navigate to archived games. Spring Training games available early March.

    Seems like they should be available in the ATV2 MLB.TV app.

    I have noticed the same thing here regarding the Apple TV. I am able to watch everything using the app though.

    I was wondering about this as well. According to the MLB.tv support forums Spring Training games won't be available on ATV for another couple days.

    Ok. I was starting to think that the ATV app was hard wired for last season and it would take another ATV update with the proper MLB app included.

    Nope same problem for me. Seems you can watch them only on the At Bat app and airplay. Odd.

    Same issue here. I understand that the ATV App will be receiving a refresh - new interface and hopefully new capabilities. I imagine that we're not getting the spring training games yet because MLB/Apple is waiting on the update. Looking forward to it!

    Which if true is bs because they billed us in Feb specifically to include spring training games.

    I agree. Hopefully it rolls out this week with an ATV3 announcement. As someone else mentioned though, you can AirPlay from an iPad or iPhone to watch the spring training games through ATV. I'm looking forward to a new ATV interface for MLB.TV though, because the current one is lackluster at best.

    They could be waiting for a revamped ATV interface. Stocks are running low for ATV2 at most retailers and it is highly expected to see an updated at Apple's media event on Wednesday.

    Releasing any information early could cause a leak in new features for ATV.

    Edit: mrcourt123 beat me to it.

    Does the Live Free Game of the Day for At Bat 12 subscribers apply to spring training?

    Thanks for the heads-up. Checked my ATV last night and noticed that the spring training games have gone live. Still hoping for a spiffy new update soon!

    I don't know if this is because I'm a new subscriber, or because my ATV is jailbroken, but anytime I click on any of the games it says 'Mlb.tv is unavailable'.

    Is anyone having the same issue?

    No, it's working fine for me.

    I've upgraded to iOS5.0 which I assume you haven't if you've jailbroken, so it could be a problem with that I suppose.

    Thanks for the reply. I've unplugged my Atv and when I plugged it back in MLB.tv is missing from the menu.

    I guess I'll have to wait unto next Friday when my the new ATV arrives to see if it works for me.
