The TBS app fail

A big element of this year’s MLB Postseason is how all the games are supposedly available for legal streaming (if you have a cable subscription). However, that doesn’t always mean the streaming options work. And a whole lot of people ran into issues with TBS’ app Wednesday during the AL Wild Card game between the Oakland A’s and the New York Yankees:

We can confirm that into the third inning, there was still a “Sorry, we are trouble loading content right now” screen (as seen above) on the TBS Roku app in California. Fortunately, it was fixed by the fourth inning. And the game was also available on actual cable and satellite. But if you’re not at the location with your cable or satellite, that’s definitely problematic. And it raises questions about how well these streaming strategies are actually working.
