    as the above people, i bought a lg bd570 after being told by lg, mlb and best buy what it would stream mlb games. it does not…i have called both parties numerous times with promises and mutual finger pointing. i cannot believe that this can not be easily solved.

  2. demand lawsuit says:

    i want athis resolved asap, will there be a driver updated to fix this?

  3. cplmckenzie says:

    This is shameful service and product. I was one of the lucky ones and only bought for a month to see if it worked as advertised.

    What a real surprise — IT DID NOT WORK AT ALL!!!

    Then to be told that you would get no credit for the service you purchased but did not get.

    They will take YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY and then blow you off.

    I paid for the service that was advertised and here I am WITHOUT the service that was advertised! No MLB.tv on my LG-BD550.

    If they were sending out the feeds for free because of a “glitch” it would be fixed within 15 minutes.

  5. Jeff says:

    Same here – no MLB.TV working. I specifically bought this player because it was a good unit with MLB support – or so I thought. No MLB working until a few weeks into the season, if ever. Don’t buy this unit if you expect MLB support.

    Wouldn’t know…I own an LG BD-570 and NO LG BD PLAYER works with this service. But, MLB.TV took everyone’s money, anyway. This article is a LIE!

    Check out these forums to see all the irate LG Blu-ray player owners and MLB.tv subscribers complaining about the problems and lack of responsiveness by MLB.tv and LG:

    Yeah, RIGHT!! One of the “enhancements” is that the MLB.tv app no longer works on any LG BD5xx Blu-ray player!!!! “They are working on it and HOPE to have it fixed by MID APRIL!!!!!!”

    What a sorry performance by LG and MLB – just taking money from us suckers without providing any service!!
