T-Mobile seems set to give away another free year of MLB.TV to its customers. 


Spring training is here and, in some good news for T-Mobile users who are baseball fans, right before Opening Day the wireless carrier is bringing back its free MLB.TV offer. 

Responding to tweets on Tuesday as to whether the company would once again be offering a free subscription to Major League Baseball's streaming service, a number of T-Mobile support reps confirmed that it will be giving out free subscriptions on March 24 from the company's T-Mobile Tuesdays app. 

T-Mobile updated its website later in the week to reflect the 2020 promotion, with MLB sending out emails to users to let them know the promotion was back. Last year, T-Mobile announced a four-year extension of its partnership with MLB.

Normally $122 for the year, MLB.TV offers baseball fans a way to stream every not-nationally-televised, out-of-market, regular-season game throughout the season. As with past years, you will need to be a T-Mobile customer and sign up for the promotion from the T-Mobile Tuesdays app on iOS or Android while connected to the T-Mobile cellular network to gain the freebie.  

Once you're signed up you should have full access to MLB.TV, including the ability to stream beyond your phone on a streaming platform like Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV or Chromecast as well as on a smart TV, game console or tablet that has the MLB app. 

Opening Day for the 2020 baseball season is set for March 26.
