MLB.TV App laggy and skips often on PS4

13 replies 2078 views Edited Apr 2, 2014

I used the new MLB.TV app for the first time yesterday and it worked really well. Tonight after watching for 30mins or so the broadcast will rewind about 2 seconds and repeat what just occured and then jump ahead. This occurs very often, sometimes about every 10 seconds. It has made the app almost unuseable. As i recall this was an issue on PS3 for me too.

 

I tried reloading the feed and using the "jump to live" button neither have fixed it.

 

If others are having this issue please post here so we can get either sony or MLB to fix this.

 

I tried this using the Phillies and Rangers broadcast, the results were similar but the Philly boradcast was worse.

I tried watching the Cubs v Pirates game on my ps4 today it's very laggy when it's even on. My issue is that it gives me a error message that it's a connection failure and that the site is temporarily unavailable or too busy?!!

I have been experiencing this as well, the video stutters every 10-20 seconds, and often rewinds itself a couple seconds. I'm watching a game right now and it is repeating a lot. It's unwatchable.
Also, I can't get it to rewind or fast forward properly using the left and right arrows on my controller when I'm not watching live. These are the exact same problems that occurred last year. I can't believe it is still like this.

I was able to request the old/original "legacy" app, that doesn't have any of these issues. If a playstation employee is reading this, can you please instruct me again and provide me with a code for the legacy app? Thank you.

I too am having this issue. Not only does the feed stutter, video quality goes from hd to sd the entire time I'm watching.

Same issue with the Cubs and Pirates game. Both yesterday and tonight. Skippy and laggy. I can't even select the radio broadcast like I can on PS3. Both apps have been horrible. I'm considering canceling if they don't fix these issues in the next couple weeks.

I've havd the same problems today, yesterday it was ok, a little laggy at times but I could watch it fine. But today for some reason I can't even watch anything. It just plays for a few seconds the cuts out saying there's a Network Connection Failure. -____-

Same problems here. Laggy, Rew/FF not working, rewinds a couple seconds every 5-10 seconds, constantly switching from HD to SD. Zero problems streaming from iPad on same internet connection on same day, same game.

I really wish that the MLB.TV app was available on the PS Vita. I can't believe that it still isn't.
