T-Mobile customers can get free MLB.TV Premium subscription starting April 4

tmobilemlbtvpremium2017

Over the past few years, each new MLB season has brought with it free MLB streaming for T-Mobile customers. This upcoming season will be no different.

T-Mobile announced today that on April 4, T-Mobile customers can get a free season-long subscription to MLB.TV Premium. With it, you can watch every out-of-market game for the 2017 MLB season as well as the choice of home or away broadcasts, live game DVR, and multi-game viewing.

This offer also includes a free subscription to the MLB At Bat Premium app for watching games on your iOS or Android device.

To get your free MLB.TV Premium subscription, you’ll need to load up the T-Mobile Tuesdays app on April 4 and get it from there. Unfortunately for baseball fans that want to watch the Spring Training games, you will have to wait until April 4 — the T-Mobile Tuesday of Opening Week — to get your free subscription.

The free subscription expires on February 28, 2018.

T-Mobile has been heavily involved with the MLB in recent years, offering free subscriptions and sponsoring both the All-Star Game and the Home Run Derby. Now baseball fans on T-Mobile can rest easy knowing that they’ll get a free subscription to MLB.TV Premium for the 2017 season, too. You’ll just have to figure out the Spring Training games yourself if you care about watching those games as well.

    One of the many reasons I love T-Mobile!

  • Jack

    If you still have last years MLB app you can still watch the spring games, it doesn’t expire until end of the March.

    • Volker

      Really? You’re lucky. I was able to watch the spring training games until yesterday. Then it said I didn’t have a subscription. So I think mine expired Feb 28.

      • John Young

        yep, got fucked just like you.

    • steveb944

      Oh wow I had no idea. Now I know for next year.

  • Daniel O.

    Yes!!!!! Impossible not to love TMO!!!!

  • They_Call_Me_Bruce

    Is this promotion per line or per account? I’m guessing line since Tmobile Tuesdays is available to all.

    • Volker

      It was per line last year and is again this year! Per their FAQ:

      “T-Mobile Tuesdays free stuff (including MLB.TV Premium) is available to all customers on a T-Mobile branded monthly rate plan, including consumer and business, postpaid and prepaid plans. Every line can participate. “

  • Jay W.

    This is totally super awesome!

  • Bryan Pizzuti

    Wow, two years in a row. I’m a football fan, but I can think of some people who might actually switch just to get this for free.

    Now, if they got me some NFL, I’m in. :D

  • BlueBlood86

    One of the best T-Mobile perks.

  • Bob Omb

    Do prepaid subscribers get this perk too?

    • Volker

      Yes. From their FAQ:

      “T-Mobile Tuesdays free stuff (including MLB.TV Premium) is available to all customers on a T-Mobile branded monthly rate plan, including consumer and business, postpaid and prepaid plans. Every line can participate. “

  • Critic4U

    Too bad you can’t watch anything because of national or regional blackouts. I Tried to watch my home team every chance I could and it kept telling me that it was blacked out…

  • Tim

    So you cant watch your local hometown team?

    • Bob Omb

      No, because of blackout rules. However, you can use a vpn to get around this.

      • James Camptone

        The app checks your location through the phone’s GPS. VPN does not
        help. VPN’s only change the location of your Internet address, not the
        actual location of your phone. If you try to use the web browser, it says does not support this browser, even if you put in a desktop user agent.

    • Tanner B. Harman

      Set up a VPN to mask your location. Done!

      • Mark

        The fan forum sites I read say MLB (and NHL, which they contract operations from) have been quite aggressive at tracking down VPN masking and abruptly cancelling subscriptions.

      • MCGTech

        Read the article again. You have to setup the account using the Tmo app with GPS enabled. so, call an out of market friend or relative to swap accounts with and you can both follow your home teams!

      • James Camptone

        No. The app checks your location through the phone’s GPS. VPN does not
        help. VPN’s only change the location of your Internet address, not the

    • Tim

      Ok so use a vpn, Awesome. I use adguard pro and it uses a Vpn to block adds on apps. Thanks fellers!

      • AtownBall

        Adguard isn’t really a VPN though dude …. So how will it work in your case?

        • Tim

          Its says vpn on top of my phone. Next to the Lte icon

        • AtownBall

          Adguard uses a VPN to block ads effectively only…. but doesn’t work as a legit VPN service which changes your location/ masks your identity online ….. look up your ip address with and without adguard and you’ll see it’s always the same …. it doesn’t switch your location

        there are plenty of vpn services out there. just google it.

    • Ianpaps

      Your local team you can watch on the app I believe about 90 minutes after the game ends

  • stuman19741974 .

    Woohoo! Saves me $120 a year! Thanks T-Mobile!

  • tshirtguy

    Best customer reward EVER!!
    Go Tmobile…

  • Excellent. My Dad’s been asking me for weeks if this would come back, and now I can tell him it has.

  • Mark

    This is even better than a free pizza! Thank you, T-Mobile.

    • Philip

      Wish we can watch NFL and NBA.

      • Sayahh

        You can’t even watch the NBA even if you pay for it. NBA League Pass sucks that bad.

      • steveb944

        That’s Verizon for NFL, no one has NBA I think because it’s a complete mess.

  • Tinger12

    One of the best perks for sticking with T-Mobile…..even the bill credits fiasco.

  • Oscar

    VPN to watch on iOS devices?

    • James Camptone

      No. The app checks your location through the phone’s GPS. VPN does not
      help. VPN’s only change the location of your Internet address, not the
      actual location of your phone.

  • Philip

    I thought its only game of the day. So I can watch my home team, but only when they are away?

    • Ianpaps

      No. You can watch any out of market game live. Your local team you can watch the game probably 90 minutes after the game ends whether they are home or away.

    • Ride or die

      They upgraded the offer from just the at bat app last year and looks like they are continue that this year.

    • steveb944

      That was two years ago. You can watch out of market games, local all blacked out due to programmer rights.

  • Daniel Cross

    ha that is a joke, Can’t watch any of my team games, they are all blacked out. This is same deal as last year, I can’t see it being any different.

    • Brian

      This blackout situation has nothing to do with T-Mobile. It is and has always had to do with MLB.TV. You CAN still listen to your local team’s games via the included MLB Gameday Audio as there is no blackout on that.

      If you or someone you know is computer savy, I believe there is a way they can set you up with an out of area IP address so that it looks like you are in Wyoming or some other non-baseball market and that should have the system allow you to watch your local broadcasts.

      If you are away on vacation then the system will recognize that you are NOT in your team’s home market and you will then be able to watch the game.

      I am not sure what other teams are doing this season but the Mets will actually be set-up to allow fans to watch their games no matter where they are via the NBC Sports app since the SNY Network is partially owned by NBC. It will work similar to other apps like CNN or ESPN, where you will have to enter your local TV provider login credentials since you have to already be subscribing to the network. If your team does not allow this then make life easy for yourself and become a New York Mets fan.

      Let’sd Go Mets!!

      • Mike

        Daniel is too stupid to realize blackouts are not T-Mobile fault. Sports teams and local tv networks have agreements in place for all major sports. When I watch NFL Sunday ticket guess what? My local team is blacked out. At least with MLB.TV you can still listen to the game.

      • Hilton GoWahoos Redskins

        Glad to hear that. I tried the T-mo app as a Mets fan years ago and even though I live in VA every time I tried to watch a Mets game it was blacked out and I could only listen.

      • James Camptone

        No. The app checks your location through the phone’s GPS. VPN does not help. VPN’s only change the location of your Internet address, not the actual location of your phone.

    • Benedict Han

      get a vpn. that’ll solve your problem.

      • Hilton GoWahoos Redskins

        Was just about to post that. Hotspotshield gets you around any local blackouts. You might end up needing to pay for it though if you stream a lot.

        • James Camptone

          No. This does not work with the app. It searches your phone’s location through GPS, not your Internet address.

      • James Camptone

        No. The app checks your location through the phone’s GPS. VPN does not

        • Benedict Han

          I’d have to disagree, because it’s worked on my phone. not only for atbat, but netflix and other apps. even it the app checked your locations, couldn’t you use the vpn to have a different geographical location and then turn off the gps on your phone?

        • James Camptone

          No. It makes you enable GPS for the app to work.

    • justintime1234

      Even if you paid for it your team would be blacked out if you lived in that area.

    • James Camptone

      If you have Sprint, you get your home games live. They have a deal with Fox.

  • yes !! this makes me so happy

  • Good on MetroPCS as well?

    • steveb944

      If you got it last year sure, otherwise don’t expect it.

    • Walt

      No its not. Post paid only. Metro doesnt get to use tmobile tuesday promos

      • Eriix

        Not post paid only, but T-Mobile branded only. T-Mobile Tuesdays offers are available on T-Mobile’s branded postpaid and prepaid plans, but not the MetroPCS branded plans.

  • steveb944

    That was two years ago. Now it’s just no local because of broadcast rules.

  • Johnnola504

    I pay for the MLB package on Cox, will this allow me to get it free on my cable?

    • NYHeel

      No, it won’t give it to you for free on cable but it will give you the same exact thing (actually better) if you use the MLB.TV app on your TV or streaming device. Don’t pay for the MLB package on Cox and just find a way to get the MLB.TV app on your TV.

      If you have a smart tv you may already have the app. Otherwise you can use a Roku, Fire TV (or stick), Apple TV or a host of other streaming devices that have the MLB.TV app.

      • Johnnola504

        Thanks for the info, greatly appreciated!

    • EastWindRain

      This T-Mo offer isn’t the same, if you’re watching a local team through a sports channel on that Cox package. MLB Premium will blackout any team in your local market area, whether the game is at home or away. It’s the exact opposite of your Cox package.

  • Jason R Scott

    Is this per line, or per account? I intend to sign up for myself, but can I use another line to give an account to my father?

    • EastWindRain

      T-Mo website says,
      “T-Mobile Tuesdays free stuff (including MLB.TV Premium) is available to all customers on a T-Mobile branded monthly rate plan, including consumer and business, postpaid and prepaid plans. Every line can participate.”

  • EastWindRain

    If it works anything like last year’s promo, for signing up, you have to use the Tuesdays app while on-network, with the GPS on.
    Once enabled on the MLB account, you’re not required to watch it on your phone or tablet. It’s good for any compatible device such as a smart TV or laptop/PC.
    This is really cool as my Simple Choice line only has 6GB of data, barely enough for a game or two at HD. I can’t upgrade to One, as the rest of the family is content with saving money with the old SC plan…I got out-voted :-)

    And on a hot spring or summer day, that’s a good thing. As your phone will get plenty warm after streaming a long 3-4 hour baseball game at HD. Heat is not good for phones!

  • Robert Pitts Jr

    I just hope this is an instant redemption and not a contest prize. I have been enjoying that perk for the past few years, and I would not be happy if I didn’t get it again.

  • Mike Sweeney

    As a Jays fan in the states, this is a glorious deal. The only thing that would be better is MLB.TV was able to utilize SportsNet 4K feed.

  • Sharti24

    Can you sign in via computer/apple tv or roku? Id like to watch at home instead of on my iphone lol

    • Walls

      yeah you can watch on anything if it’s like last year

  • eleanor.donnelly@mail.ru

    I got paid 104,000 bucks in last twelve months by working online and I was able to do it by working in my own time f­o­r 3+ hrs /daily. I used an earning model I came across online and I am so thrilled that i made such great money. It’s very beginner friendly and I’m just so blessed that I found out about it. This is what i did… http://www.wzurl­.­me/tEXzrw

  • Keys Man 70

    Will Metropcs customer also qualify?
