Whether your favorite team is the one to beat, a hot up-and-comer or holding out for a miracle, you're guaranteed to enjoy baseball season like never before with the apps on your Samsung Smart TV. Keep up with every game, stay on top of stats and highlights, share the experience with fans and foes alike, and even practice your own batting skills, all at the touch of a button.
If you only download one baseball app this year, it's got to be MLB.TV, powered by MLB.com, where baseball is always on—24/7, every team, every game. Paired with your MLB.TV Premium subscription, you can watch regular season home or away games live and in stunning HD picture quality. Access full-game archives, choose a favorite team, and listen to your favorite audio option, including one that lets you immerse yourself in the natural sounds of the ballpark.
Catch all of your hometown team's games no matter where you live, so even in rival territory you can round up your fellow fans for gameday. In fact, you can set all of your favorite teams right on your remote control and enjoy every home and away broadcast. Pause the game or create your own instant replays with live DVR controls. The MLB.TV app makes America's pastime a whole new ballgame.
Manage all the team facts, player stats and local listings that you need to carry you through the season. The ESPN ScoreCenter app gives you real-time scores for every game, lets you personalize the app to track your favorite teams, and shows you the latest stats and news without having to leave the game. You can even position the app wherever you want it on screen, so it never blocks the action. For more information, watch our ESPN ScoreCenter Know Your Apps video now.
Take your viewing up a notch with the ESPN NextLevel app. ESPN NextLevel creates an on-screen overlay that lets you keep up with everything you need to know—all of the day's stats, news and picks from ESPN viewers—without interrupting the game. ESPN NextLevel is exclusive to Samsung Smart TVs, so you won't find it anywhere else.
Once the summer action really heats up, there are apps to ensure you don’t miss a game. With the Rovi TV Listings app, you can view customized local TV listings so you know when it starts and which channel to watch. The Google Calendar app is a free web-based calendar that lets you set up alerts for every game, and you can also view calendars shared by friends and groups, so you'll know who among your friends will be watching with you.
Even when you can't get to the ballpark, you can still share every game's highs and lows with friends through the Social TV app. Social TV ingeniously integrates your Facebook, Twitter and Google Talk accounts into your viewing experience, so you can celebrate or commiserate with your fellow fans while the game is happening. Set Social TV as a ticker overlay on your screen and use your remote's QWERTY keyboard to post your predictions, call out a great play or indulge in a little trash talking without missing a second of the game.
Okay, so you know when all of your favorite teams are playing, you've checked every local listing, and you're downloaded on all the latest news and stats. Still need more baseball? How about calling yourself off the bench and taking your turn at bat?
