Xbox® One | Troubleshooting


Stuttering and buffering on streams is normally due to insufficient bandwidth. Please see the Recommended Bandwidth FAQ page here (quality is based on the connection rate).

If the bandwidth is fine, exit the game and re-launch it. If that does not help, exit and then re-launch the MLB app.

If bandwidth is a problem, power cycle the router and modem to try to improve the connection. (Power Cycling is turning off the power to the modem and router then powering back on, in an attempt to refresh the Internet connection.) If bandwidth is an issue, try to limit the amount of devices sharing your Internet connection as this could have an impact on your overall bandwidth.

If connected via WiFi you could try connecting your device to your router via an Ethernet cable.
