Fellow sports fan over here and I would like to learn more about what is going on, Flashhuge. Have there been any recent updates to the device? Are you experiencing any other issues with other applications or functions?

Make sure under Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services (must be on) -> At Bad (must be 'Allowed While Using the App'

If location services for the app get turned off, it doesn't know where you are logged in from geographically and will black out all games by default (regardless if on cellular or wifi for streaming).

No updates at all. I can still stream Netflix and Amazon with no issues...just MLB is messed up.

GPS is turned on as always.  Nothing has been changed which is why it is so puzzling to me...

@ flashuge


 Thanks johndoe for the awesome recommendations. When would you notice this change? have you reached out the MLB app support team?

I have actually spoken with the MLB support staff.  They stated that it would have to do with the GPS location on my phone/hotspot/etc at that particular time, and that if it changes (locations) that's when their blackouts happen...???  So I am still trying to figure it all out.
