What is TOK.tv?
TOK.tv is the social TV company behind TOK Baseball, the free iPad app that allows friends to TALK and rediscover the fun of experiencing baseball on TV together.
What is TOK Baseball?
TOK Baseball is the free iPad and iPhone app that allows friends to TALK (voice, no text!) while watching a game on TV together even if they live afar. It’s perfect TV companion because you also have a scoreboard on your iPad.
Where can I find TOK Baseball?
In the App Store. Search for TOK Baseball. Or click here: TOK Baseball on the iTunes App Store.
Does it work on my iPhone?
Yes, now it does! We released first an iPad version, but now you can have it for your iPhone too. We do not have it for Android tablets and smartphones. At least for now.
How do I use it?
Once you have downloaded the app on your iPhone or iPad, just open it, sign up and invite your friends to join your virtual living room. They need to have an iPhone or iPad too and download the app. Then check the live games on the zoomable map, and voila. The game is on. Start to scream together!
Why do I still see yesterday’s games?
We keep yesterday’s games until around 7 am Pacific time, then we switch to the games of today. At 7 am, stop talking with your friends about the awesome game you saw last night, and start talking about what the pitcher of today is going to do 😉
My TV is slightly ahead of my friend’s TV. If we talk live, it might ruin my game. What can I do?
This is the main concern we have, too. We are working on making this automagical, but for now we need your help. It is quite simple, really: if your friend is ahead of you by 1 second, ask them to pause their TV for 1 second (using the pause button of their DVR). If your friend does not want to do it to ruin your game, dump him (or her). S/he is not a friend…
I hear a strange sound in the audio, like the voice of my friend is distorted. Is there anything I can do about it?
Yep, we know. Sometimes voice is not perfect. It is due to a million reasons, starting with your network, how many people are using TOK.tv (please be patient, we just started…), how loud you speak and so on. We are working on it. We are going to be better than Skype (hey, their audio quality sucks sometimes too…). It is a promise.
The baseball feed is not always in sync with the TV. Sometimes it is late and, in same rare cases, it is even ahead of it. Is there anything I can do?
No, there is nothing you can do, unfortunately. The provider who gives us the data sometimes goes to sleep or drinks too much beer. We are working on getting a better service, but we need some time to do it.
Can I use the app even if none of my friends is connected?
Absolutely! You can have the scoreboard in your lap and the players’ stats, while you are watching TV. And you can still make a lot of noises. However, watching baseball on TV is now a social activity. You should find some friends to really enjoy it!
What about my personal information? Do you take good care of it?
Your data is secure with us. We are not sharing it with anybody. If you have concerns, or if you want to remove your account, please contact us.
Can I Skype or use another audio app on my iPad while using TOK Baseball?
No, you can browse or read email (just click on the Home button on your iPad and put TOK.tv in background), but you cannot mix the audio of two different apps.
My team always loses. Is there anything I can do about it?
We are told that screaming together in front of the television works very well to improve the performance of your team. However, it only works if you do it live while talking to your friends. You are definitely not using TOK.tv enough. Try it and let us know.
