BBC to stream MLB London Series

May 3, 2019

The meeting between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox at London Stadium will be shown live on the BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport website.

The games on June 29th and 30th are part of a two-year deal signed by Major League Baseball (MLB) and BBC Sport to stream the London Series in the UK. They will be the first two MLB games to ever be played in Europe.

“We’re very excited to bring the MLB London Series to free-to-air audiences across the country for the first-ever time this summer,” said Victoria Cotton, BBC Sport Live Streaming Executive Editor. “Our digital platforms are proud to provide coverage of world-class sporting entertainment and MLB will bring a new level of interest to our channels.”

Meanwhile BT Sport has extended its agreement to show regular-season and post-season games through to 2021.
