YouTube TV abruptly drops MLB Community as spring coaching approaches

YouTube TV is perhaps working to refine and improve its user experience, however like each different subscription TV service, its clients are all the time prone to dropping channels out of the blue. MLB Community is the newest to fade from the service with little warning. YouTube TV emailed subscribers yesterday, giving them the heads-up that the channel could be going away… by the top of that very same day. Now it’s February, and MLB Community is gone. 

Subscribers are raising the usual complaints, asking the right questions, and threatening to cancel. Shouldn’t the month-to-month value go down? (Sadly, it by no means works that method.) Will they get issues found out by the common season? (Perhaps, however I wouldn’t maintain my breath.)

Any cloud DVR recordings from MLB Community will likely be misplaced because of the channel’s elimination. In a statement to Deadline, MLB Community mentioned “with Spring Coaching about to begin, we remorse that YouTube TV has been unwilling to barter a good carriage settlement. MLB Community has supplied phrases in line with what near 300 different U.S. suppliers have agreed to for distribution.” It’s the identical story and the identical speaking factors. Each time.

This one remark from Reddit actually encapsulates the irritating cycle that some folks discover themselves in after they lose a favourite channel and peruse different companies — solely to wind up proper again the place they began:

YouTube and Main League Baseball have had what seems from the skin to be an affable working relationship lately, with the previous sponsoring the World Sequence and exclusively streaming numerous games in 2022. However that wasn’t sufficient to stop yet one more carriage dispute.

As baseball followers voice their frustrations, NFL diehards have more to be excited about. And within the soccer world, Apple at present kicked off its MLS Season Pass for $14.99 monthly or $99 for the entire season.
