MLB Troubleshooting Guide

In this guide, we will sum up all the troubleshooting steps that are tested by our support team and reported to be working by our users.

Make sure that your device is set up correctly

Visit your Unlocator account and make sure that you are getting 3 green check-marks.

You should visit your Unlocator account from the same device that you are using to set up our DNS. Otherwise, you will always get the "Error - Your DNS is not set up correctly" error in your Unlocator account.

Alternatively, if you set up our DNS on your router, then all the devices on your network are using our DNS, therefore, you could use any device connected to that router to make that test.

Please follow this troubleshooting guide to help you resolve the red DNS checkmark issue Why I am getting red DNS checkmark?

Important Notes:

MLB TV on Apple TV

When launching the MLB App for the first time, you'll be asked to "Allow MLB to use your location" with three options. You need to make sure to choose "Don't Allow" otherwise, the MLB App will start using Location Services to determine your true location. Please follow the steps below to ensure your location settings are disabled for MLB:

  1. From the Apple device home screen, tap "Settings."
  2. Tap "Privacy."
  3. Tap "Location Services."
  4. Ensure location services are "On" at the device level.
  5. Uninstall MLB
  6. Unplug your Apple TV for 15 seconds
  7. Install MLB and choose "Don't Allow" when it pops up.

Apple TV 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generations

Kindly note that the app has been officially discontinued on Apple TV 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generations. It is only available on the 4th generation of the Apple TV or above. Please keep in mind that this change was implemented by MLB, and is therefore out of our control.

Please note that while MLB does not officially support the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generations of Apple TV, you might still be able to get access to their content. However, due to technicalities, we cannot guarantee that the service will permanently work as intended.

MLB TV on Android based devices

Consider using fake GPS location apps like this together with Unlocator
