We paid for this, of course. And now we are not able to use the product that we paid for. It worked fine in April. I used it nearly every day to listen to ballgames while gardening or to watch when I was not home. Now that's all gone.
Customer "service" is no use. They've had hundreds of calls but they won't do anything about it. I sent an email to customer "service" at first. It took a week for them to respond with this generic nothingness:
There's no apology, no explanation that this is a widespread problem. I know it is from the dozens of people who have said they had the same problem on Twitter. Here are a few:
Same problem with no response. #Frustrating— ⚾️Dodgers All Day Every Day ⚾️ (@steevo33) May 10, 2018
I have sent multiple complaints. No response...— Karen Engle (@boxorama11) May 9, 2018
and mine is now broken. It must have added another update.— Hingle McCringleberry (@orioleslifer) May 9, 2018
I just asked for a refund.— Harry Yeprem Jr. (@HarryFromCBus) May 9, 2018
They DM'ed me trying to "once again" fix the problem.
I just kept responding "No. I want a refund".
So I guess I am getting one.
The https://t.co/clWpAC3jJJ app stopped working on my phone this weekend as well.— RePeTe (@Cincypiano) May 7, 2018
It's not working for me either. @mlbatbat— Ashley Davis (@AshleyDavis32) May 6, 2018
You get the picture.
When I finally broke down and called after a week, the support guy didn't seem to care. He transferred me to technical support. That guy didn't care, either. He told me they've had many calls about it but he didn't care. He just assigned a ticket number.
This is what happens when I log in through my settings. (I have cleared credentials multiple times and re-logged in. Each time it says I am good to go.
But when I try to listen to a game, I get this:
And when I try to watch a game, I get this:
Now, I worked in a place where we released an app update that was broken, and you know what we did? We pulled it from the Playstore and put up the old version until we fixed the new one. It took one day.
It's been two weeks and MLBAM has not only not fixed it, but they haven't apologized, haven't offered a refund, and haven't given any indication that they are going to fix it at all. IT'S BEEN TWO WEEKS.
I paid for an MLB.com subscription, as I have for a dozen years or so now. At Bat is part of that subscription. It does not work anymore. You make it work FOR ME. It's not the other way around. I'm not supposed to go get a phone that fits your product. I'm not buying a freaking iPhone. I so hate corporate America. There is literally nothing we can do. I will file a complaint to Consumer Affairs or whatever, but nothing will come of that. We are powerless against big corporations that don't give a shit about anything but profit. Screw the customer. They got their money from me already, why should they care about me being happy with the product I bought?
