MLB plotting streaming platform?

October 19, 2021

Major League Baseball (MLB) is said to be in talks to launch a new video-streaming service in the US that would enable fans to watch their teams’ home games without a cable-TV subscription.

The service could launch as early as the 2023 season, according to reports.

The NBA and the NHL are also said to considering partnering with MLB on the streaming service. Reports say subscription rates would vary from state to state and could be between $10 and $20 a month — significantly below the monthly cost of most cable-TV packages in the US.

The league’s MLB.TV service, which offers out-of-market games for a subscription fee, would continue to operate even if the new streaming service emerges.
