The Many Error Messages of MLB.TV

The one where it says too many people are using my account was my favorite. What actually happened was the MLB At Bar 2010 app totally froze my iPad. I had to reboot the thing. I then got this message. I couldn’t get it to work on my computer, either, probably for the same reason. That HELP button you see? It’s not any help AT ALL. The HELP button on the “blackout” check error was no help, either, unless you didn’t know what the blackout restrictions are. And don’t even get me started on blackout restrictions. People in Eugene, Oregon can’t watch Giants games. That makes a LOT of sense.

I’ll post a more thorough rant about how horrible MLB.TV has been this year at a later time. I’ve got lots of video samples I shot that show just how frustrating it can be to try to watch a baseball game using this service that cost me $115 (plus $15 for the iPad app).
