Is the offer restricted to viewing only on your phone?  Or can you also stream it from the App on another type of device?

Here’s the list of my devices on which I can watch MLB (all tested out today):

Roku, iPhoneXr, iPad Pro, MacBook Air, Windows 11 laptop (@ MLB.COM), AppleTV HD, and Google Chromecast with Google TV.

I watched two opening day games today.  Quite a nice perk from T-Mobile!

So what am I doing wrong?  I can watch on my phone but can’t connect to Roku.  Tells me I have to upgrade.

I first logged into the MLB app on my iPhone, and with the app still running, I opened the T-Mobile Tuesdays app to claim the deal. When I did, it switched to the MLB app and updated the account with the paid membership. After that, I opened the Roku MLB app. In the Roku app, I signed out and then re-logged into MLB using the same account as I use in my iPhone app. When I did that, it recognized that I had a paid subscription. Did the same thing in the MLB apps in my AppleTV HD and Google Chromecast. Those apps also recognized I had a paid subscription. 

i hope that helps. 

When I redeemed the offer from the Tuesday Thanks app I didn’t have to use any credentials on my iphone or ipad, it just worked on the app. But I’d like to get this to work on a TV. I have the FireTV stick and downloaded the app to it. When I use my T-Mobile account email and password it does not have the paid subscription.

Anyone have any hints to get this to work on a TV?
