MLB.TV's popular live video streaming app has been available on a variety of platforms for the past two years, and is finally available on the Xbox 360. Baseball fans on Microsoft's best-selling console now have access to all available out-of-market regular season games and several advanced features that go well beyond what's provided in even the best television broadcasts.

In this article, I will look at the MLB.TV app's requirements, discuss available options, and show how to maximize its usage with either the controller or Kinect.


To use MLB.TV for Xbox LIVE, the following are required:

  • An Xbox LIVE Gold membership
  • At least 100MB of available storage space
  • The MLB.TV app

There are two basic membership types that apply to the MLB.TV app: free and MLB.TV Premium. Free does not require an MLB.TV login and lets you set favorite teams and watch highlights from both the 2012 and 2011 seasons. A paid MLB.TV Premium subscription gets you the following additional benefits:

At present, subscription options run $124.99 per year, or $24.99 monthly. If you purchase a subscription on your Xbox 360, only the annual subscription option is available. If you want to pay monthly—which is a good option, for instance, if you don't know if your favorite team will be any good this year—register or sign in via web browser at http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/subscriptions/index.jsp?product=xbox and select the per-month option. All major credit cards are accepted.

If you ever want to cancel, you can do so via the MLB.com website or e-mail subscriptioncancel@website.mlb.com before your next billing period. Keep in mind that annual subscriptions are set to renew annually on or about March 1st at the prior year's regular yearly price.
