The MLB.TV app on TiVo is set up to deliver game viewing and video stream in a picture-in- graphic (PIG) or an “L bar” window to view the score while watching a game. We integrated TiVo’s standard playback functions into the app, including the ability to pause, fast-forward and rewind or skip game action. “Jump to Inning” is available to allow viewers to jump back to the beginning of any inning in the game. The ability to switch between home and away broadcast feeds is also available. Other features include stats and standings, favorite team selection, schedule calendar view and live home and away radio broadcast feeds. All live video streaming is subject to blackout restrictions.
We also will offer the MLB.TV Free Game of the Day, a pre-determined game that can be watched live with a valid MLB.com account. The account can be set up at MLB.com/TiVo.
