MLB at Bat: Unable to Reliably Verify Location

This is more just a how to.

MLB at Bat app for Android did an update, and the app is now checking to see if "mock gps" is enabled. If it is, the app will not do allow any video playback--live or archived. It'll give you a mesage "unable to reliably verify your location". I found out the what the error meant from some page on MLB.com; they also give instructions how how to undo the mock location. The last version not to check is 1.20.

I saw quite a few people complaining in Google Play/market they're unable to view video. This is why.

Some people used apps, such as FakeGPS, to circumvent blackout rules to watch thier local team or some national game, such as Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN, while on the go. It's still possible to use gps spoofer with MLB at Bat, it just takes more steps. I found a sollution that appears to be working for me on a HTC Evo 4G. I haven't tested thoroughly with live games, but does work with NFL Game Pass in the USA. Here are the steps:

1) turn on your GPS spoofer (say FakeGPS). Set location.

2) open up Google Maps, and load it's map location. It should load your fake location. This will put the location into the phone

3) turn off GPS spoofer. close app

4) disable "allow GPS mocking." look in applications, developer tools section

The fake GPS location will still remain in the phone. I can speak of other other GPS spoofers, but FakeGPS will prompt one to enable GPS mocking, if it is not already, when you open the app. You can now open MLB at Bat and watch video.
