    From my understanding, yes, if you have one of the currently supported phones. I do, but living in Cincinnati, there's no need (that I'm aware of) for me to buy MLB.tv.

    ooh. big fat liars....

    this page says WATCH 150 games live on android phones.

    http://cincinnati.reds.mlb.com/mlb/s...ns/devices.jsp

    this page only mentions audio for ST, live video IF you are a MLB.tv subscriber after opening day. iPhone users get the live video as part of the app, which hardly seems fair.

    guess I'll start saving cans or pop bottles.

    Yes, but not until opening day. There will be no spring training games on video. Did you check to see that your droid has live video?

    Within my version of the app, I go to "information", then "Tips/Support", and it says "What devices support MLB.TV"? and the answer is:

    Spring HTC Evo
    Verizon HTC Incredible
    Verizon Motorola Droid X

    Additional devices are expected to support MLB.TV as new devices are released.

    That should work.

    If not, I would try this: mlb14@maileu.custhelp.com.

    Has anyone tried the MLB At Bat app for an iPad yet? The past couple of years, I've enjoyed the app on my iPhone, but was was wondering if it's worth it on the iPad?

    I imagine that it works as good and more then likely much better on ipad.Just a guess though.

    A note about an other Apple product.I have the new Apple TV and a few days ago installed the latest update.When I rebooted I was very pleased to see a new MLB app that allows me to actually enjoy my mlb.tv subscription on an actual TV.

    Got a droid in part because of this thread as my current contract was up and I was due an upgrade. Sure have not been disappointed and the mlb app is soooo good it is almost beyond words. Three quick screen taps to reds baseball (or any other game). Just so full of win.

    Re: Listening to Reds' Games on an Android Device?

    I bought the ap for my Droid Pro, which is not on the list of supported phones, and it works great The only problem I have had is that the volume is low when driving. I am trying to find a way to broadcast the stream through my car speakers.


    Any ideas?

I definitely got my $15 out of it last year.

    I was going to ask about this because I see the Iphone App says you can get all the spring training games. This is great but I wanted to double check that I can get the regular season radio feeds too right?
    I mean I can get them without re-subscribing?

    FM Transmitters for MP3's

    I used to use one of these to transmit podcasts to my car stereo back before I got a radio with an aux input. It worked pretty well, you just have to make sure you are on a frequency that isn't occupied (surprising hard to do here in Cincinnati). Just make sure you get one that uses the regular audio jack as the source and not the Ipod specific ones that plug in to the sync port of the Ipods.
