I am living in the USA in the Buffalo, NY area. I never get that issue. Are you in the USA?

Hi Ron. The MLB app's accessibility is not as good as it once was. The scoreboard doesn't work very well following the most recent update. Also, the audio option is usually available, but for some reason, MLB likes to present me with some advertising banner that will block everything, and not allow me to access anything. I end up unloading the app, and then restarting it from scratch so that it will work correctly. It's a bit clunky. It hasn't always been that way. It is still the most accessible professional sports app out there. The NHL app is also pretty good too.

I find the MLB App to be very accessible. What is it about that app that you don't find accessible? Using the iPhone, I launch the app, swipe down a few times to the MLB audio button, double tap, I get a listing of games and without anything playing, just before the listing of current live games, it says: 'no feed selected.' Then when I double tap on the game of my choice, the stream starts playing. I choose a preferred team (the New York Tankies--oopse I mean the New York Yankees) and when I choose their game, the home feed loads automatically. I wish the NFL app was as good. I would have no problems at all.
As far as the NFL itself, there is supposed to be an disability/accessibility phone number, but when you call it, you get a 'number not in service' message. Also, when you contact them via e-mail at accessibility@..., they never return the post.
I even called the NFL headquarters and got the voice mail of one of the assistant coordinators or something and left a detailed message on his voice mail: no response at all.
What a bunch of bums!

I have, and it sucks. The streams do not play consistently. Once I was--
able to get into a game, I could not find a way to get out of it and
move to another game. Very sad that the league who is the most
popular, and has more money than God can't put together a better app
than they do. In my humble opinion, the NFL and NBA apps are the worst
sports apps out there as far as accessibility goes. MLB isn't a lot
better, but you can still find the streams for audio broadcasts.
