MLB At Bat 2012 for iOS launches with new pricing scheme

updated 03:55 pm EST, Wed February 29, 2012

Video limited to MLB.TV Premium subscribers

Major League Baseball has launched the 2012 edition of its MLB.com At Bat app. The title is now universal, supporting both the iPhone and the iPad. The most significant change though is its pricing, as a $15 year-long or $3 annual fee currently only includes audio broadcasts of games, not video.

Getting both audio and video requires an MLB.TV Premium subscription, which costs $120 a year, or $25 a month. At the moment the app is geared only for spring training coverage; the MLB is promising more features in an update before opening day. Aside from broadcasts, the app lets users track news, stats, schedules, and rosters, and video archives organized by players, teams, and keywords.

    What?

    "a $15 year-long or $3 annual fee " ... Umm, what's the difference between year-long and annual?

    Not gonna bite

    Sorry. They already gouge me for tickets, I already subscribe to cable, and the interwebs... It probably all contains commercials too.
