MLB Press Release
MLB.TV subscribers to have new access to live stream World Series 2014
Subscribers also can live stream the All-Star Game and FOX Saturday national games
NEW YORK, February 27, 2014 - For the first time since MLB.TV debuted in 2002, its subscribers will have access to live stream every game of the World Series through the #1 streaming sports service, available via the MLB.com At Bat app and more than 400 connected devices. MLB.TV subscribers also will have the ability to live stream the All-Star Game and games in the FOX Saturday national broadcast window beginning in 2014.
WORLD SERIES, ALL-STAR GAME
For the first time, subscribers will be able to live stream every game of the World Series this October and the 85th All-Star Game, scheduled to be played Tuesday, July 15 at Target Field, via MLB.TV through FOX's participating video providers. Access will be available across more than 400 supported MLB.TV platforms, including through the highest-grossing sports app ever, MLB.com At Bat.
FOX SATURDAY NATIONAL WINDOW
Beginning in May, MLB.TV subscribers for the first time will have the ability to watch live regular season games not being shown on FOX broadcast television in their respective territories. Using this year's first FOX Saturday national broadcast window as an example, here is how the new access applies to MLB.TV subscribers:
On May 24, the FOX Saturday national broadcast schedule features three regionally distributed games beginning at 7:00 p.m. (EDT):
- St. Louis Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Reds
- Washington Nationals vs. Pittsburgh Pirates
- Kansas City Royals vs. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
MLB.TV SUBSCRIBER ACCESS
Any MLB.TV subscriber in the FOX viewing territory of the Cardinals-Reds game would be able to watch the Nationals-Pirates and Royals-Angels games live on any supported device. In previous years, MLB.TV subscribers would have been subject to national blackout restrictions for all three live games. The same policy then would be applicable to MLB.TV subscribers in the FOX viewing territories of the other two live games.
The accessibility to games previously blacked out to MLB.TV subscribers was introduced as part of the eight-year multi-platform media rights agreement Major League Baseball and FOX Sports announced in October 2012.
