Major League Baseball games will be streaming live on YouTube soon — for those living outside the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.
The league’s interactive media and internet arm, MLB Advanced Media, announced that they will stream two live baseball games daily during the regular season on YouTube for the countries not aforementioned and will post highlights and clips on MLB.com’s revamped YouTube channel two days after the games have been finished. The highlights and clips are not restricted by region.
Kenny Gersh, senior vice president of business development at MLB Advanced Media, said in a statement: “Expanding our partnership with YouTube provides another platform for extending the reach of the thousands of hours of archived baseball content in our library and for delivering live baseball games via the Internet to fans in new markets around the world.”
Fans that can’t get live baseball games on YouTube can still watch them online by subscribing to MLB TV’s premium package that costs $129.99 annually. The package doesn’t include fans’ home team’s games, which are blacked out and available only on television.
