International Users

For those of you located internationally that have been having access trouble with the Mosaic (and possibly even MLB.TV), we’ve made a few changes today that we think should help alleviate the majority of the issues. Try it out this evening and let us know.
Thanks,

New Features: Player Tracker and Gameday

Quick update for you all. In addition to testing alternative methods of distribution on Panel 2 (Please write in mosaic@website.mlb.com or comment here on your panel 2 viewing experience lately!), we’ve rolled out our first pass at two new features. Now, while you’re blacked out, you can take the mosaic application to a scaled down version of the MLB.com Gameday application. Next time you see a live game that is blacked out, click twice on the screen to go to the single game view, and you’ll see the new feature. We’ve also launched the customizable Player Tracker which will allow you to view alerts only for players you are interested in. Check out Player Tracker in the single game view for more detail. We’re still working out the kinks in both of these, but wanted to make them available for you all to start taking a look at.

Also, If we receive good feedback on the higher quality mosaic streaming in Panel 2 from you
all – we’re considering moving all panels to the higher quality format. Please write in and let us know how panel 2 is working!

Thanks,

Justin

New Release for the Weekend

We’ve pushed two new sets of functionality for the weekend and are interested in your feedback. First and foremost, we’ve deployed a trial of some alternative streaming behind panel two. Still in high quality at 800kbps, we’re now using a slightly different method of getting the content to you. We’re very curious to hear how it goes.
Second, the Player Tracker is now up and running. Check it out in single game view on the right side and let us know what you think!

Thanks,

Justin
